I thought I got some better shots than this after the install, but all I had were these quick/crappy ones before I finished the adjustments. But here's roughly what it looks like. Car was hella dirty.

I need to figure out what I'm going to do about the vents in the hood. That driver side one is directly over my DCI and BOVs. I don't want them getting wet. You can definitely hear the engine/turbos better, though. LOL

Also, the trunk was a bitch to install. The hood was super easy.

^^^How do you do you guys like the Cobb. I'm debating between that and procede, I want to run e85 so I feel like procede is the way to go.

I'm thinking of jumping over to procede from cobb for their E85 map. Just a dci and tune and making close to FBO numbers, yes please. Unless cobb releases an E85 map in the next few weeks.

That's exactly what I'm thinking too. I guess I'll just wait a couple weeks before I pull the trigger.

I want to look into getting an E85 protune before deciding. Looks like there might be at least one guy getting it done so i'll wait for his results.

I'm still running 3.x (whatever the latest non beta release is) as I'm not much on running beta of anything at all. How is your experience with 4.x, Mo/Wookie? any others feel free to chime in as well. I'm an early 07, so I'd love to hear from someone else with that year.

all the talk of smoothing out the boost sounds amazing.

I run the beta maps as soon as they come out and have had no issues. Been on 4.02 for a few days now and think it feels great. Not sure the differences between 3.01 and 4.02, but it runs awesome.

Don't forget 4.02 is only out for stage 1+ and 2+ at the moment. I knew I should have pulled the trigger on an IC before summer.

Man your not kidding!! I have never seen that many ricer idiots in my life. It literally was a nightmare, but like i said i was just going out there to support a friend. I took my gf out there with me and after about 20 mins of walking around she looked at me and said lets get the hell out of here. Way too many crap hondas and the heat was horrible, so we went and had frozen margaritas instead lol

just ended up buying jb4 + usb cable for 400 shipped. I decided against the cobb because i wanted the auto tuning map 5 on the jb4 and map 7 for e85. The Jb4 just seemed to have more features, and it's cheaper!

Ya we got there at about 4 and there was no possible way to get in, the cops basically shut it down and started telling people to turn around and leave lol. We ended up having to park at that other lincoln tech building right off of arkansas and walk to the meet. On a side note, did anyone see that badass m3 that was inside and that s5 coupe by the front gate? both sick cars!!
