    Well I installed my V-Limited Front lip today. About 2 hours after install it was removed, not by me but my driveway. I was furious as it snapped the lip and broke the mounting brackets. I plan to destroy the end of my driveway and curb and naturalize the problem. My driveway and curb is very steep even at slow speeds and a ridiculous angle it still broke the dang thing.

    Ahh man sorry to hear about the lip. I would be ticked if that happened just after I put it on too.

    Stage 2! I bet thats going to feel great. When do you think you will have everything installed?

    That makes sense then! Man with that lip installed had to have been hardly any room! Any pics with it installed before the mishap?

    Oh YEAHHHH! The first group of parts ordered arrived. Only installed the SF Intake for today!







    I did a quick drive around the neighborhood after install and flash to SF stage 1 map. Man does the SF Intake sound amazing!! I'm very impressed with it thus far.

    Awesome, i would love to see how your setup goes because the parts you putting on for stage 2 match my build plans bit for bit. My build just got postponed though because I had to buy a new laptop.

    Also I'm not sure what you plan to do with the EBCS but my tuner told me you need a custom tune for that and that Cobb does not make any maps for it. This could be wrong as he is the only one I've heard that from thus far.

    Thats great! I bet it does sound really good. Do you plan on taking any videos in and out of the car? Did you notice a performance increase from the butt dyno with the upgrades?

    Oh yeah there is a noticeable difference in sound. The turbo spool faster and with the SF intake map the peak boost is increased to 16.5 psi. You can definitely feel the difference.

    On another note, this is what happens when I get bored on my days off.





    The final coat of glossifier is drying in the last few pictures.
