Howdy,

Just wanted to make this thread so friends and family could check out mods as they arrive. Feel free to add suggestions, input, or advice. Thanks for browsing!

12/24/2012:
STI is finally mine



12/25/2012:
Merry Christmas! Woke up to this (I still can't believe it's real):



Quick couple of mods:

* eliminated the daytime running lights...because... well..... they suck.
* not really a mod, per se, but I've had this carbon fiber license plate frame laying around for years. Figured it looked better than the dealer frame:



12/27/2012:
Some quickies and certainly nothing stellar:

* got my trusty broadway mirror back. Eff you, blind spots!
* wheel locks. I have no idea how the previous owner didn't get them jacked.

First shot, my two favorite girls:



Mods for today:

* more of a fix. The alarm chirp stopped working so I looked up a fix online and took care of it. In case this is happening to you, here is the way to fix it: LINKY
* got all my LED replacement bulbs (except for the front turn signals) and took some shots for you guys:

LICENSE PLATE (burned out bulb on the left, LED on the right)


TURN SIGNAL (before and after)



REVERSE (before and after)




DOME (before and after)



MAP LIGHT

1/12/2013:
So last weekend I picked up a couple of goodies: a used catback to replace the Magnaflow I have and a cobb accessport. I'm trying something out with my accessport. I logging what kind of mileage I get per tank on the stock, economy, and stage 1 CA map. Once I have the numbers, I can decide which is the best balance of fun/efficiency. So in the meantime, here's the latest mod:

*the exhaust swap!

For my first trick, I'll make Roxy levitate


Couple of shots of the old exhaust





New exhaust




New exhaust hit my diffuser so I had to cut a notch off


*finished product and exhaust clips on next post!

**Magnaflow exhaust up for sale!!!!!**: LINK

I got them from this cat on eBay (great seller and great price): eBay I would recommend buying 2 sets (each set comes with 2) so you can swap out the map lights too. The maps are SUPER bright.

Glad to be here, sir!
