    I haven't had an emissions test for this car yet, but I shouldn't have a problem, since I went with the catted downpipe. Though small, they only require that you have a cat, so I should be good to go.

    Is there a reason I see most people with a PW TMIC versus the AMR TMIC?

    It seems the AMR is larger than the PW - does fitment become an issue with the TMR?

    Bigger (largest surface area, ignore depth), better flow, better gains, revised underhood duct, better fitment...

    Great build Lokey!

    How are you liking your suspension setup? Namely the Epic lowering springs & Koni Sport adjustable struts?

    Thanks, man. I couldn't be happier with the new setup. It's firm, but not "coilover firm" and drops the car just enough. It gives the car a better stance, but not "clown car" style...in other words, I can still go over speed bumps and such without worrying about my front lip.

    Would you think that the sway bars and end links would still be recommended after the springs and struts?

    I'm honestly not sure. I did the sways/endlinks first, so I don't know if the firmness of the struts/springss would eliminate the need or not. You'd haave to feel it out. The one thing I definitely recommend after doing this setup is the Whiteline Roll Center Adjustment Kit. It completely brought my steering back. Lowering the car changes the suspension geometry (hard to describe) and causes bump steer.

    Is there anything you would change about your suspension set up?

    Do you have any more side pics of your car? Similar to the one you posted that is black and white. I'm considering getting those wheels after seeing them on your car, but I'd like to get a better idea of what they look like. Thanks!
