Intake came in last Friday, installed it with the help of another forum member, Jay.

Love it.



I'll be looking into fixing the flute problem soon. But due to other obligations, the cars won't be getting anymore mods this year Going to be saving up my pennies for CTS TBE.

Not sure yet... I have a ton of research to do. GFB DV+ seems easier, but think I read about some issues with them?

As fot CTS... Dat sound and quality. I'd like Unitronic TBE (Uni, if you read this, I can reprepsent Uni in Chicagoland area ), but it's too pricey. I plan to keep this car for a while, so I'm in no rush, but hopefully have TBE within next year or two.

I stopped wrenching, since my Grand Am flooded (car was so easy to work on). This car, I thought would scare me wrenching #causegerman, but you guys give me confidence

I think it was the earlier models that had issues the newer gfbdv+ have an upgraded spring that supposedly solved any issues. easy install too (I think)

yeah man, doing your own work at home is much more satisfying in the end. Plus theres plenty of folks willing to help.

Adding to GLI.

Ordered Dr. Colorchip to fix 2 decent sized rock chips and small ones, on the hood. Worked great and was easy. Although I didn't do the thumb thing, I just used the brush. Need to go over one of the bigger rock chips for a 2nd coat. But from standing distance, you can barely see them, unless you're actively looking for the chips. Some cell phone pics.

Before Chip 1:


Before Chip 2:


After Dr.Colorchip:

Installed GFB DV+ last Friday, loving it so far. Install was easy and moddedeuro's shipped quick.

Flute sound is gone and car feels like it pulls harder. Overall, think made right choice. DV Relocation is still on the list to-do, but possibly get pushed back. As I'd like to get a boost gauge next.

Don't remember if I saw it in the box lol. Or if it was, it went to garbage with the box. I was more interested in the product

I did try to use the GFB sticker, but it must of gotten screwed up with the humidity, cause it wouldn't come off the back piece, so in the garbage it went Was going to put it on my toolbox.
