    I paid 450 for my Godspeed and it works great. It was definately alot harder to install than a turboxs would be though. No mounting hardware, no overflow bottle, had to cut one of the pipes and silicone couplers to make it work, but it works really good and looks awesome. Find a used one or buy one like mine or SSAC. People on Nasioc like them both... once there on. Btw, it took me about 7 hours and I dont have fogs anymore.

    If you don't have to do it alone, don't. It's not impossible but there are going to be several decisions that you will have to make, since there's going to be cutting, fitting, chopping, etc. if the parts you get aren't top shelf.

    Make some friends at your local meet if need be.

    Hardly warrants a FMIC. Get a good TMIC.

    One thing people forget. Call your insurance and ask if they will cover your car in a front end accident if you have your bumper beam removed (which you will have to do for a FMIC).

    Haha I just won't tell them I took it off. Would I have to tune my car? If so Cobb tune can do the job for me right? Or can I reset my car?

    Doesn't work that way. When the adjuster comes to look at the car they will see it's missing.

    Ah willful ignorance. You're going to hate yourself if you do get in an accident and it's not covered.

    I'd go over why you don't need an FMIC, but obviously that is of no importance to you.
