    I have had about six new cars and have never worried about a warranty. Hell must people that go in for warranty work get the run around anyway.

    Either way, the car looks nice
    Look at the picture of the uppipe it already has one. I will be getting a egt gauge soon so I made sure that the header and uppipe that I got already had one.

    EGT should be measured in the manifold, not the uppipe.

    Congrats on the new car!

    I'm confused exactly what you're doing though. Many of the mods you listed have no place on the car or don't work correctly without a tune. Fuel pump? Headers? Spacers? Why?

    Im getting a tune in two weeks. Why would you say that the mods have no place on the car?

    Wow looks great. Does the exhaust still keep the "bass" rumble? I love how deep the exhaust note is on the stocker

I have a Tomei UEL header and up pipe, Perrin TBE, GrimmSpeed intake spacers, walbro 255 fuel pump, AEM wideband, Perrin EBCS, and I am going to send the turbo to GrimmSpeed for the PnP and ceramic coating.

    Because there's no need for the fuel pump with those mods. I don't understand why you want to run an EBCS when there's more reliable and cheaper setups. The intake spacers aren't really a good early mod. Headers also really aren't necessary. Spending money on the turbo is much better spent elsewhere. Overall, your mod path has a lot of money being spent on things that would better be left alone so you can spend it on much more useful things. But it's your car.
