So not much going on really I have tried to not order anything since the wheels and tires set me back a good amount but I couldn't pass up the amazing sale on a trifecta tune so I jumped all over that. I can't wait to see what this tune does and can't wait to take my car to the track again and see how my new tires/wheels, and tune help with my times, may not be much but its still fun going

Yeah you will get it soon enough, sometimes the wait is what kills all of us. We want and then when we get and then we order the most painful part is the final wait!

Your telling me lol. I hate waiting. I have no idea how I ever survived waiting the 2 and a half months from placing an order for my car and then getting it. But once I got it I completely forgot about the wait so hopefully the same thing happens and the mod isn't a big disappointment.

Tomorrow I think I will finally get around and hook up the LEDs for my cup holder. Depending how it comes out I'll have to order some more of those LEDs since they are relatively cheap and have some fun with them So stay tuned

Today I finally installed the LEDs to my cupholder lol, I've only had the LEDs for like 2 months. I ended up connecting them to the same places my footwells are connected to make things a little easier for me. They came out pretty good. They aren't super bright but thats alright I don't mind, It adds a nice touch.

That's the best bang for the buck! I have my tune for over 2 months and i'm still feel the power and big change from before! I need to get the Vararam to finish (for now...) with the performance... Going to complete "The Looks" first! you are going to love it my friend!

Yea I was a little nervous ordering it, wasn't sure if I wanted to fool around with the whole warranty yet lol but said screw it. I don't have much planned for the next couple months or so but once she goes into storage ill be getting the ported IM and some other cosmetic/power mods that would have me waiting a couple of days/weeks.

Very nice Mods!!! I have a 2012 IOM 1LT RS . You have given me many ideas thx. I have put my CAI in and LEDs. One thing you may want to do pretty cheap is black out your side marker lights front and back. I did that looks great on the Orange. I will try to post some pics later.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll have to look into it.

Well today I got my Trifecta tune and all I can say is .......DAYUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUM!!!!!!! Best $300 I have spent so far. The ghost cam is pretty sick too. I posted a vid of how it sounds outside the car but idk if you can hear it too well. I'll have to take a vid from inside the cabin maybe you will be able to hear it better.

Today decided to get some vinyl blackouts. I already have a Magnetic rear trunk blackout but I wanted a front bumper blackout and that alone was more than what I payed for this kit. The kit also comes with a mailslot black-out, which I obviously won't need, so I may either sell it or PIF idk yet. But here is what the kit includes:

Well was bored at work this weekend and I made an extensive wish-list with all the mods I could think of that I wanna do. Now I know this list will continue to get longer but it would be nice to cross some of them off haha. Figured since this is so long I would remove most of the things from the "wish list" section of my first post to clean the first page up; I left some because I have links to it will be easier for me to find them later on. Without further adieu here is my wish-list lol. .

Oh man, if I ever did a wish list with pricing I would have run for the hills! My heart wouldn't be able to handle all that cost on one sheet of paper, LOL!

Haha yea the pricing can be a little intimidating lol. Fortunately some of the stuff I can do myself and for free and since making that list I have found some things for cheaper haha! Sorta glad I don't have an SS or else that list would prob be twice as long lol.

I didn't really research each one extensively yet to find the best mod/best price, that will come later one I am about to purchase it .
We kind of have the same list! I'm pretty much done with the performance... not looking for a 10 second V6! working on my exterior now, to go on the interior... Paypall already show that i spend almoust 5G!!! this is BAD!
