pics of the hpa puck installed. Getting the oem mount out was a pain. This is my favorite mod to date so far. Completely changed the feel of the car for the better.

edited - this seems like so long ago. My oh my its a completely different car now.

old video below.

Installed an S3 shifter today and attempted to install 42DD shifter bushings.

long story short, the bushings did not fit at all so I ended up just installing the S3 shifter.

Throws are a bit shorter which is nice but still sloppy with the oem bushings.

quick update:
I was a bit impulsive and bought a neuspeed fmic, now waiting patiently aside the door for the next 6 days until the UPS guy comes :lol:

also have an appointment at HS Tuning for 8/1 to have the RSR clutch installed.


track sl00t
installed the neuspeed FMIC last night. Install went great, hardest part was getting the bumper off and then figuring out what this nutsert tool was. Followed the instructions, and referenced Wetmoney's thread when the instructions didn't make sense.

Car feels amazing driving. before, I would get one decent highway pull and then the power would fall off. Now it keeps going and going like the energizer bunny.
Haven't got to play with it on a really hot day yet but I'm assuming it will be the same results. Also haven't gotten to drive around with the AC on yet but I'm hoping that the power loss is minimal now.

Pics in post #2.

So day 1 after really driving the car, the intercooler is fantastic. Really not sure why I didn't do this sooner. If I could do it over I think it would have been one of the first mods I did.

Removed all the scratches from my gauges this morning using this stuff. It's really impressive how well it worked. I thought I was screwed and would have to live with them.

eh, not really my boy, but nah, I blame congress for that. I actually understand how the country legislates (president proposes, congress disposes law), so it's all good.

I also didn't think right of center could wear plugs... :: mind blown :: :iono:
