Well the APS 525 FMIC went in yesterday. Fitment was good with the intercooler, but the CAI needs a little rethinking by APS. Getting the cone on the pipe was a joke. The core is awesome! After a hard drive around a industrial area, I jump out a felt the core, warm on one side and absoluley cold on the other. Lag is minimal if any, spool is louder than I had hoped for with the CAI. Looks great, works great, but that CAI needs a little attention from APS. Install was 7 hours with triming the bumper, could have been 6 if the CAI fit like a glove.

I should'nt have to smog for 5 more years. And with all wheel drive, it's not a problem getting your car to pass smog if go to a single roller dyno.

It was purchased from South Coast Performance. Ask for Ferdie.

^^Yes. The APS draws air from the fender well, not the engine bay.
