Still on OEM. Car has about 5500 miles on it. I'll have to upgrade sooner than I would if I had stayed stock with the car, but I'm hoping I can get a lot more miles out of it before then.

We have almost identical mods. My car is at 26k miles. Only on stage 3 and flex fuel for 2k miles. Stock clutch is slipping :-(. Now trying to decide what clutch to go with.

That sucks. I am slightly nervous to pick one out eventually because I know I will want to upgrade from OEM, but I don't want to lose the drivability.

I checked out your journal, and you have a great looking car with some serious power. You definitely need to handle all that torque you're hitting the road with.

Default Advan Carbon Fiber Trunk

My wife and children went away Saturday night so I decided to spend some time installing my carbon fiber trunk that I picked up back in the Spring.

I had tried installing it back then, but it just wouldn't line up right and looked horrible. For some reason this time I had no trouble whatsoever installing it and getting it to line up and close correctly.

I'm going to be honest: I did it purely for looks and not for weight savings. This carbon fiber trunk was about 20 pounds lighter (which is 90% due to getting rid of the spoiler). Overall it's great to lose weight on the car, but I am not a fanatic. I just wanted no spoiler for a while.

If I get tired of it, I can always put my factory trunk back on since I didn't trade it away.

Here are some crappy pictures of it. I'll try to take some better ones this week...







You can see my helper in this last one

I had thought about the cf driveshaft. They are pretty expensive, though, and I am wondering if you really can feel the difference.

I've got to tell you that this is one of my favorite mod paths I've seen in the 2015+ cars (almost more than mine... almost). Car looks great and it's nice to see you addressing each area of the car. Keep it up!
