    grimmspeed ebcs, super easy install and of course nothing is ever completely bolt on and of course I got the LGT bracket...... and didn't want to send it back so i bent the bracket a bit and mounted it better in the LGT spot.

    Turbosmart Kompact BPV and Mishimoto throttle body hose. Fixed My boost leak right away plus both are just so much better quality over stock there's just no comparison. Throttle body hose was pretty easy to put on just what ever quack put on the stock one put the hose clamp in a bad position but just moved some hoses and there it was

    had to get a pic of the accessport. Best mod ever. Actually Accesstuner race is my favorite mod love being able to tune my car myself living in the south bay not too many options for protuning

    If you had done any research, you'd know the dangers of running that particular intake.

    Haven't heard any complaints about it before just where the maf sensor is located it likes to act as a cold and a short ram. But I have it tuned specifically so should be no issue. What were the dangers you heard? Not trying to be a smart*** just want to know since I wasn't informed before

    Thanks broI call it stage 1.5 but its the stage 1 map and I tuned it through Accesstuner race since I'm running the ebcs and they don't have a map for the injen intake anyway. Got the boost peaking at 16 then dropping off. Dang TD04

    Injen is notorious for throwing off the MAFv compensation tables. If you have a WBO2 sensor, this is easily fixed. If not, I'd remove the intake until you install a WBO2. You won't see any gains out of the intake anyway.

    Cool it was just what I heard. Good thing I was shooting for a WBO2 soon then I can really get this thing dialed. Intakes I've never seen any gains just better sound and colder air thank you for the info sir was afraid it might have been catastrophic

    Please tell us this was a full on retrofit kit to replace the stock projectors with proper HID projectors? If you just threw HID bulbs and balasts into the stocl halogen projectors you should be beaten with a spiked bat
