Open source on the fa20f is kinda weak. The Mastermind behind most of it now works for Cobb.
There isn't really any nightmare to tuning. Using Cobb's solution they have map notes available for their tunes that tell you exactly what to use. For instance a stage 1+ requires the Cobb big sf intake specifically. The stage 2 requires any 3" catted downpipe.

I just wanted to see if anyone could confirm that the 2002-03 front glass is the same as the 2004-07 model's. I need a new windshield for my '03 but all I can find online and locally are '04+ glass. Thanks!
