I figure it's time to start another thread since the last one borked.

Umm, back to stock head unit, eliminating my single-DIN gauge panel, mounting my turbo gauge in a cup somewhere, using Torque Pro to monitor everything else.

Possible upgrade to a Volvo (Alpine) SC-900 if I can find a black one.

I like Lotus.The cool,fast cars they,I like cars.

What were you using before? Why switch back to the giant oem one, sold your single din?

I had a Becker Traffic Pro but I borked the screen.

I like the stock look, and I can run my phone through it anyway. The stock unit can connect to the amp too.

do those spacers really give you any noticeable improvement?
fat chicks have very warm and wet vaginas, from my experience

what's kraftwerk? A firm specialized with something related to protection of animals or training dogs?

Gains, no, prevents loss due to higher IATs, yes.

When I put it on, the engine was warm, only been sitting for an hour. The intake was pretty toasty still. Put the spacer on, drove 23 miles down the interstate, parked it and checked it again, it was cooler to the touch than when I had started.

License plate lights burnt out so I replaced with some led units. Also picked up an enclosed cold air intake system. Hopefully it will keep more mud out in the warmer months.

Not that your truck is super high up off the ground, but do you have issues with stuff getting up in there at that height? I guess it would be whipped around by the tires no matter the ride height. I've never been a fan of cold air's because of this. I ran into many situations with my 240 where it certainly would have had an untimely death if I had one of those on it. The RSX I lucked out with too, it has a high riding aftermarket intake. I've actually never heard of a enclosed cold air before, but I do like the idea.

K&N makes a typhoon CAI where most of it is enclosed. A lotta the high end intakes come with carbon/whatever shrouds that make a kind of plenum over the filter. Never understood why people opted for the intakes that you're talkin about that almost drag on the ground. Same goes for people with ITB's that never run a filter, I wouldn't wanna chance it.

Mud can get sucked in or water can leak through when I go deep enough with the stock unit. I primarily bought this since I want to buy a snorkel if I plan on keeping this truck past a year or two. Much easier to retrofit an aftermarket snorkel to a watertight box the to the stock factory unit. The oem unit does have a lid and closes with tabs but its not totally secure. The Volant unit I bought will work much nicer. Plus if I sell this truck it'll help with the sale.

Decided to go ahead and install the M&S surrounds since I also picked up a set of OEM GT black HID headlamps.

Haha, my brothers old Lancer had a setup like that from a turbo kit. One day he heard a bunch of clunking noises and then something flew out from under his car and the car behind him hit it. He pulled over to see if there was damage to his car, and then realized his brand new K&N cone filter slipped off.

The weird thing is that the K&N's come pre-oiled, but the rubber where the clamps go is also oiled... I suppose this may have had something to do with it (but really the clamp should be enough to hold them). Anyway, had it fallen off in a top mounted situation this likely would never have happened.

And as much as I love the sound of ITB's, I too would worry.

Really they oiled that rubber flange? Lol. That would suck even more so because it was new. Reminds me of my kart, I used to lose air filters off the carb all the time, then again that was not even 2 inches above the right rear tire.
do not want.

Yep. I have one (came with the car). You just have to leave the car in neutral when parked and just use the ebrake. Make sure the ebrake is TIGHT. I left my ebrake up and the car in neutral, came out the next morning and saw my car rolled to the bottom of the driveway.

So have you put anything on your car that actually improves the performance? Or are you going purely for street cred?

Lightweight exhaust, is that stage 2 or stage 3 weight reduction?
