Mine is sitting with the rear in the air, waiting for my rear calipers and brake fluid to come in. Cooked the suckers on the track, the seals are shot and they won't retract in all the way even with the proper tool

Installed my Redline Strut Kit
Replaced my LED fog light bulbs with ones that actually light up the road lol
And while I was under the hood, I replaced the cabin air filter, which I wouldn't be surprised if it had never been replaced so it was well over due from the looks of things.

Oh yeah...
And ordered my largest American Muscle order yet lol (and it's a single item lol)

Wish someone would come out with a engine cover for the 15-17 3.7 it would do a lot to make the engine area look clean,the clear overflow,clear master Cyl tank,open strut towers just don't cut it,even my SN95 GT has a cleaner looking engine bay it seems like....

So get on it and someone develop one,think someone used a 14 cover and modified it to work.


No tune needed with CAI. My next add on is a H pipe I ordered to replace the resonator,should be here Thursday.[COLOR="Silver"]

Started installing my Air Lift Performance kit.

Got the tank, compressor, air management, drain filter and a couple lines ran. That should be all of the "under the car" stuff.

Now I need to run the harness, install the front struts and rear shock and bag. When I type it, it sounds so easy haha

Ran it so that everything is in the tire well along with everything originally except the spare tire. So I have the jack, lug wrench etc. along with a tire patch kit. Thinking about a tire cover and mounting the tire to the top of the trunk cover. That's still an option to decide on later though.

Washed, clay bar, waxed. Lot of detailing left to do though. Need to vacuum interior and clean up the engine bay a little bit.

Honestly I do not notice any improvement. Maybe I need a bigger MAF or intake tubes. Dunno. Quite disappointing.

Removed Resonator and installed H pipe,left stock mufflers on and no drone at all zero none zilch,will drive it this way for awhile then think about axle backs/mufflers but for now it's all good,I even took it up to 80ish as I merged onto the interstate and it sounded no different then having the Resonator on but I'm not outside to tell.
Anyway one more mod to check off the list. Now see what happens.
CAI - check.
H pipe - check
MPT Tune - check

Got my wiring harness installed today along with the air line for the same area.

3 more air lines then the bag sets.

Did test the compressor system and noticed a slight leak, simply pressing in the air line stopped it.

I changed the wiper blades today. If you haven't had them you wouldn't believe how much nicer the Bosch Icon wiper blades are. Oh! and I updated the navigation as well.

Are you using the plastic lines? I'm thinking about going with hard lines but not sure if it's worth the effort/time

Just a little more work on the air lift. Figured I'd post a picture of the tire well. Have to wire loom a couple wires and mount the relay. Then tie up what's left.

Have both the front lines ran to the front and the controller to the locking part of the console. Been looking at other locations including the dome light housing, but will require some cutting and such so that will come later.

Now I'm ready to tackle the front struts and connect them and then the rear and connect them since they are in the back. No more disassembling the cabin area for now.

FYI... The loop is until I grab an air coupler with a male connection. Only had female and one plug so I couldn't very well leave it open so I made a loop for a temporary fix.

Since my car got back from the dealer I've been skeptical of their work. I felt that I needed to change the coolant, had all my friends think I was crazy for wanting to do fresh fluids so soon. I didn't get a complete flush in as I had other pressing things to do but I did find metal shavings.....
