    Thanks
    So far I'm really liking it. The touch is very light and it's pretty precise and accurate. The colors are very vivid and bright and extremely easy to read. The bluetooth works like a charm and I like how it downloads your contacts and phone history into it. I also have the rear view camera hooked up to it and looks awesome. I would reccomdend this HU to anyone. Oh. And the navigation rocks.

    As far as the speakers go. I have a little more playing around to do to get it just right. I didn't put in a sub woofer bc I didn't really want my car thumping that loud. I was just looking for a solid sounding system that didn't sound like it was in a tin can. I think I may need to get a amp though to help out. But overall. I am very happy with my purchase and would do it again tomorrow.

    Yay!! Nice job, dude. That FMIC is massive... those don't restrict air flow to the regular radiator at all?

    And stage 3?! Holy crap... how does it feel?

    Well to start I am not a very "mechanical" person. I've race motocross so I've worked on dirt bikes and stuff but never really worked on cars. So this was a HUGE learning experience for me. What better way than to work on a brand new 30k dollar car ha-ha.

    Issue one. I forgot to take off the factory coupler off the throttle body so the one tube kept coming up short about two inches and was bumping into the intake. Put the proper hose there and wouldn't you know it, it fits perfect. At the time I had no idea I had to change the coupler since it was underneath the manifold and seemed like there was no way of getting to it.

    Issue two. I couldn't for the life of me get the second tube to line up on the right side. I rotated it every which way and nothing would fit. Even called up Perrin a few times and still ran into issues. Well here, you have to cut out a hole in the engine compartment. I must have missed that step in the instructions because I was trying to fit it behind the headlight and washer fluid container. Yeah, that wasn't working at all. Once I got the hole cut underneath, everything lined up perfectly and didn't give me one issue.

    The inlet hose was a PITA, loosened up the manifold to get some clearance and was still hard.

    Intake was straight forward

    Boost controller was cake

    Downpipe was a little difficult. It was pretty hard breaking those loose. Had one stud come out with the nut, so I need to replace that.
