Just checking in as I haven't posted in a little while due to the holidays.

I'm getting a new HD camcorder and decent external mic so I plan on making another video clip or two in the next two weeks.

So I've driven more than 1K miles since I had the exhaust and intake and I finally found something I don't like about it. In M mode @ 6th gear and 2.7K rpm, the exhaust at times have this very low sound that's a little bit uncomfortable. At 5th gear and 3.1K rpm the sound is so much better. Anyways, my wife don't even notice it unless I mention it so I guess it's not that bad.

Another new thing I noticed and liked a lot, though some people may not like it, is that the exhaust when fully warmed up (say 30mins of driving) sounds quite loud at 2nd gear or stop and go traffic.
