Did a thing today! I finally got a set of GR golds all the way from sunny California from a memember on NASIOC. Poor shop lighting and crappy iphone pics dont do these gr golds justice. Once i get the car cleaned up and detailed ill post some pics. Stay tuned folks!

I decided to try AVO post maf intake elbow (I am just itching for mod, so why not).

The claim: increased in interior from 70mm to 80mm for greater than 10% better airflow and sizable increase of 8 CFM over factory.







The only part I don't like is the pipe did not have provision for the notch on OEM airbox. So I had to carefuly cut it to size or else is not going to fit properly for good seal.




And damn it does work. Datalog shows increased in MAF G/S from 296 g/s to 300 g/s, and reduced time by 0.5 seconds for 3rd gear pull from 2000rpm to 7200rpm.

Learning something new everyday I guess.

Installed AVO's latest rear endlink.


Ball joint for swaybar arm side and sealed pillowball that (I'm told) allows 30 degrees articulations for arms side.


Max short on the left


Maybe two to three turns higher from max short on the right.

Unfortunately the endlink cannot reach the soft settings. Bummer.

Fortunately - it fits way better than WL KLC182 when combined with Superpro swaybar as it allows me to position the Superpro's swaybar arm at a more parallel to the arm by having the AVO endlink at its max short position.

The effect of using this endlink is quite surprising. Its comfier vs the Whiteline. Maybe because of the pillowball joint and having the swaybar arm angle at a more accurate angle are what made the rear feels more comfortable than using WL endlink at the same middle position (with WL, the swaybar arm needs to go up or else the balljoint won't line up with the hole on the swaybar).

Made the oil cooler bracket, ready for fitment test and made necessary adjustment.




I'm thinking to paint it brilliant silver.
