    Since you've got a little time before your next part install, get some heat wrap for headers/uppipe/downpipe.

    I'll post up more pics of the installs next weekend. Then pics and vids of the dyno tune the weekend after that.

    All the power mods are going on next weekend as the OP says. Then tune. After that I am concentrating on all the other mods listed besides power.

    I ordered a few rolls. Should be here Monday or Tuesday. Wrapping those parts and doing some other prep before next weekend.

    I also might heatwrap some of the hidden tubing of the fmic if I have any left. I figured it can't hurt. But the parts more likely to be affected by heatsoak would be the ones I wouldn't wrap just for cosmetic reasons. Idk.
