    Up pipe installed

    Hello all, not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this, but I wanted to give my impressions of the product, install, and performance.
    I got an Invidia pipe from RSD. It is great quality and all studs and threads were fine. It took a cleaning to get the grime out from inside the pipe though.
    The install was done in my garage on a hot Florida August day. It took me 4 hours from jacking to lowering. It did help to research photos and videos of the install. The up pipe thread on here under tutorials was a big help. Youtube was good too.
    I capped the O2 with the one from Invidia.
    Upon starting, I heard a deeper burble to my stock exhaust. I got no CELs either. Driving it was the greatest reward. The throttle felt lighter and much more responsive. Boost came on earlier, and there is a better seat of the pants feel.
    Definately worth the 4 hours spent.
    I have an SPT intake and now the pipe. Next I hope to get an AP and DP. Then exhaust, then bigger FP, injectors, turbo, TMIC....See, that's how it all starts, with one bolt on to another, lol!

    I have also been pleased with my invidia uppipe! The bung you plugged with the bolt from invidia is for the EGT sensor, so you may get a check engine light from this being unplugged. If you do, placing a 2.2K Ohm 1/2watt resistor in the EGT plug will get rid of it.

    Ah, ok EGT sensor. Yeah, no CEL yet, but I'll get the 2.2 if so. I like that I did the hardest(?) mod first, and everything else will be easier from here on out. The DP will be easy, and the other parts I listed. The turbo, when done, may be difficult. I'll find out!
    I'm still loving the car every time I drive it, not missing my Mustang yet, haha!
