Been long time since I've been on this board.
Everyone I knew is gone.
Question. Anyone heard anything good or bad about Mishimoto direct fit intercooler?
Was going to go with the HPF when I put priority in this car but HPF is 900 and you have to do a bunch of trimming. FWIW the Mishimoto is 500 but have not seen much on it. Hoping it would let me change my Cobb to the FMIC tune.

Most guys here go with VRSF intercoolers. I believe they're $450+ shipping.

Just had LukeG install Koni's/Eibach PK and M3 CA's. Ordered up some AG M359's cannot wait for them to arrive and to go for a cruise. FBO + skinny snow tires aren't a good mix!

Yes sir... I've been doing walnut blasting for a couple of years now. It's not too bad as long as you have the proper tools.
