Put some amazon coils in while I wait to get the r8 coils and ngk spark plugs. Should have just replaced them when I went stage 2 but was trying to curb my spending. Ended up costing me more.

Tips are installed. The top part sticks out about 1 inch further then the OEM ones but it lines up with the back valence. Just need to take care of that ugly suitcase muffler. I might paint it black and see how it looks or get a Verus rear diffuser.

ah yes the old Last-Humans-Garag suitcase muffler mod. when he did it, it hardly made it less noticeable with the shots he put out there. might present differently in person.

Got my BBK in and holy shit, it's big. I'll post pictures later holding them up to my current brakes. Gonna be a while til I have time to get them on though. Only thing I wish was they had options for slotted rotors instead of drilled but I knew what I was getting going into it. When the time comes to replace these ones i'll look around for slotted

Rear:

So the good news, still love how big the brakes are and I fixed an exhaust leak I had

Bad news: PCV diaphragm is torn. I see some oil on my pendulum mount and around the engine/transmission area. I have the iABED RMS installed yet i'm still seeing oil. A few questions:

If i'm seeing oil with the iAbed RMS, should it still be good once I fix the PCV or will I have to drop the trans?

Is the check valve known to go bad on the PCV? If so is there any way to test? I'd rather buy a new breather hose and upgraded diaphragm than a whole new PCV.

Pics:

Big ole rotors


Big ole calipers


Concerning oil


Shitty PCV

I'd be more concerned about that front brake wear pattern, but with the upgrade coming I guess it doesn't matter anymore
