no way, it's the only reason i come here, besides looking at the classifieds lol.

Seriously though, i spoke to the guys at IAG when i was there getting the fender work and their charge for manhle stock bore pistons installed was respectable (with oem gasket kit etc). I may do that and this kit with the stock TMIC and clutch and have it tuned similar to User's until i can get a clutch and FMIC for it.

Only issue is, I am on an OS tune so I'm not sure if IAG minds me getting their kit and then taking it to DPS for the tune. I know they were leaning towards inhouse installs and tuning to keep quality/satisfaction high. I'll have to see after the holiday either way. Keep up the updates User!

I know, me too though, i am noob so i just like to see what others are doing, do my research and weigh my option.

Send me a pm with what they qoted you if you dont mind.

On a couple of theads i follow, i have read that if you are not very careful with what you are doing, piston slap tends to be more noticible if you just drop in some pistons. I have read on several threads and asked people that are running cosi engines and said the piston slap is bearly noticiable. Not trying to say that IAG doest know what their are doing, not at all. I am sure they are a very experienced in what they are doing. I have only dealt with them in a couple of time and it was a pleasure dealing with them.

I was first introduced to IAG b/c I needed a fender roll too lol; IAG's customer service was spectacular. Everything was right on schedule and they kept me updated as well. Even though they are a bit far from me, I wouldn't hestitate to go to them if I needed any work done!

Ok within a week and a half I put 1,200 miles on the car Here are my impressions:

1. Way too much power for the street!!
2. Idles (1000rpm idle b/c of the 1000cc injectors) and drives completely like stock on local roads when you aren't pushing it thanks to Jorge! Smooth as butter!
3. I don't have to downshift to pass other cars in 6th gear when cruising at 3500rpms
4. The EWG is a GREAT road rage tool for people doing the speed limit in the left lane haha
