I have noticed very little loss in accelleration from 1st to 2nd. However, i have noticed more difference at WOT in second and third as there is more power and torque than before. Its really hard to tell since i did everything at once, cai, boss intake, 1st tune, and exhaust. Theres times where im exiting 1st and im not even realizing im spinning tires until im sideways since the exhaust and engine bay are so loud.

i saw what you did grabber with your wiring but i was a bit more lazy and mounted it to the engine block in the valley under the intake.

Next up is window tint, and suspension upgrade.

Looks good. I always wonder why nobody seems to get those side covers, it really cleans up the engine bay.

The CAI sound is so overdriven and fake with the sound tube. I deleted mine and it sounds so much better.

Yep! I got mine gently used for $100. Did you know they aren't even plastic, just pieces of foam?

That's disappointing. I might commit suicide over this. Eh, maybe later. I'm too depressed to off myself right now.

It's that big ugly medusa that snakes from the intake to the firewall. You need something to seal the intake off with though.

I had a thing from my JLT CAI that I sold. I think they're just called vacuum caps though. Put a black zip tie or worm clamp on it and it will look fine.
