Correct me if I'm wrong, but for the LCI tailight conversion you also need a new trunk (as well as the coding)? I thought about doing it, however, I don't want to spend money on a trunk.

Yup you do need a trunk but my car had been rear ended so I just opted to buy the csl lci trunk along with the tails. I actually got a really good deal for the trunk and lights locally from a member called E90FUN.

I think Jay will, if we can schedule enough people at once maybe he will come visit us in Sac. I know I'm interested.

Pissed off! So I took my car into the shop to get the LSD installed, they called me a hour to say they couldn't do it. They were under the impression I had the full pumpkin, I only had the the gears. To top that off, they said I also needed shims and possibly bearings, I'm fairly sure this is a 100% plug and play mod and that is not required.

Sonic MS says it's a 5 hour job, this place I went to wants my car for 3 days and over 10 hours of work!!!! I think I'll just have Sonic do the LSD at the same time they do mu turbos.

Good news...I have the new PROcede Autotune maps testing them out this week.

That does suck. I was excited to hear you found a local for us Sac people. Guess not. Did they open it up or call you beforehand?

At least you can take solace in the fact Sonic has done dozens of these. You shouldn't have any issues with them.

Any word on the RB's? Hopefully, you can do this all very soon. Your car is going to be a monster!

Don't get me wrong...that shop I went to seems awesome! They knew all about Quaife and even Rob Beck, however, it doesn't appear they have much experience on the N54/55 cars. They do mostly dealer service type items and are very booked with those. I even asked them about our intake manifold and valves.....he got all excited and told me they just sold their walnut shell system. I'm still going to have them clean it down the road.

I'm scheduling an appointment with Sonic on October 1st, giving them my car for a week, and having them do the turbos and LSD.

When are you getting the Shiv meth kit?

Your guess is as good as mine. I'm hoping by august 13

I'm waiting on several items. Paid already... Pmw meth kit, v5 2.5 upgrade, and m3 sides from Jay.

Next upgrade will either be new front bumper and/or m3 suspension bits. I can't seem to stop myself.

I've waited this long for the turbos...whats another month It's gonna be a monster with cooler temps. When Shiv gets less busy, I'm going to send in my Rev 2 for the upgrade. That shop I went to can do the suspension bits! I helped my buddy out and replaced his bushings on his mustang....that was a pain in the ass, I would rather pay someone. His car even had room to work around.

Have any of you guys asked Ron at IPB to install the LSD, he does great work and is a authorized retailer for GIAC.

What's IPD? I used SonicMS as that was recommended by several people. Great work and price. I just remembered though, it did take them 3 days. They remove and reinstall the pumpkin but send it out for the actual LSD install. You may get it done faster. If possible, could even drop the pumpkin yourself and take it wherever they do. It would only cost $2-250.

IPB is a shop in downtown sac he does mainly porsches but has been in the business for many years. He is currently doing a full 3.6 to 4.0 liter conversion along with a buddy of mine in his GT3. He is more than capable of doing the LSD swap. He also mentioned that he has tuned a few of the N54's with the GIAC flash.
