GREAT looking build. Love the wheels, tires, and color combo. Then again, I might be a little partial to those items. We have very similiar builds going for us.

No I haven't gotten a chance to do it yet. Just used a very small needle and poked a couple holes and the big bubbles went away. Some of the small ones are going away now too. If the rest of them don't go away I'll have to give your idea a try.

O yea almost forgot to mention....I went to the track today to do some 1/4 mile runs. Lets just say it wasn't the best of days lol. Lets just say:

I am terrible at drag racing haha. I am so inconsistent. My best run today was my first run which was 14.0829@98.28 with a 2.1108 60ft. From there my ET got worse and so did my 60ft haha. The ET ranged from 14.0829-14.4939 and my 60ft from 2.1108-2.2.2718. Before today my best was 14.0009@99.61 with a 2.16? 60ft.

It seems that when I try to improve my 60ft I end up making it worse lol. I tried launching at diff RPMs, that didn't do much. I tried just flooring it and that didn't help, tried easing into it that didn't help haha. I haven't been messing with the TC or anything and haven't been doing burnouts before (have General G-max tires not stock Pirellis). To be honest don't really know how to do a burnout other than when I spin a little off the line. I also haven't been able to mess with tire pressures yet.

I wish I remember what I did for my 2.1108 60ft run cause I would do that all the time lol

Installed my Rx breather and it was pretty straight forward. Luckily it came with caps so I did not have to go out and buy any, and thats always good haha. I am glad to get that big honking hose off my driver side valve cover. I know everyone likes pics so here they are The second and third pic are where I had to cap off in case anyone needed to know what to do or if anyone cares lol. Last two pics are my engine bay before I started doing mods and now (still got a lot of work to do)

Yea I didn't know for sure either. I had a feeling they did but never knew. I think I may end up going to Lowe's and getting different ones. Not sure if I like the ones that came with it took much, not gonna lie they look like nipples haha. May try to find some that are flat at the end and go in instead of covering the hole.

Not much going on as far as new mods really. She is gonna be going into storage in a couple weeks and I'm just trying to save up for the holidays, great deals for black friday and the mass amount of mods I have planned this winter. Unfortunately the other day one of my LED DRLs stopped working. I'm hoping it is actually the LED and not the connector, haven't gotten a chance to switch in the stock bulb to see what is going on. I hope it is just the LED. The original ones I got of off amazon but I think I am gonna go with these from AAC. A little bummed they are twice as much as the ones on amazon but maybe they will be worth it, plus it comes with a 'free" DRL harness that I could always sell since I already have one lol. Gotta think positive!

Well it is a very very sad time. It is that time of the year again where I gotta put Amber into storage :(. The worst part about it is that she is stored in my dad's garage which is 300 miles away so I don't even get to see her everyday :(. While she is in storage though I plan on doing some mods that I otherwise wouldn't be able to do while I drove it daily. Most of the mods I have planned are for the engine bay. I just sent out my IM to get ported and I also plan on getting it polished. I also intend to do some painting to my valve covers and plenum cover.

In the mean time I am stuck driving the winter beater depress-mobile, my '06 Hyundai Elantra lol.

Haha well you got me there, but I've been in Similiar situations like with RPI so I can sympathize. But anyways that's cool, I'm really diggin the polished look as well and can't wait to get mine too. I can almost lose traction with T/c on wondering what the ported manifold butt dyno will tell us...

My Mace Stage 3 ported IM arrived today and I can't wait to install it. For anyone who is acutally follow this and expects me to do a review on it I am sorry but I won't be able to give a good one. I plan on doing a couple of other performance mods this winter (hopefully BBK headers ) so I won't be able to give an exact review on it, also not to mention going from my crappy 4 cylinder car to my camaro will be a drastic diff I prob won't remember how it drove before these mods I plan to put on. Next over the winter I am going to polish my intake manifold and plenum cover, get a plenum spacer, change some of the bolts and hopefully paint some of the IM and plenum cover. Hopefully it will look good when I am finally done lol.

I could use some advice on getting the plenum cover and IM polished. I talked to a place that can polish them for $75 an hr and they said it would take about 2-3 hrs so that is about $150-$225 and know I will be happy with how it looks. Or I can go out buy everything I need and over the course of the winter I can do it myself slowly but surely prob for much much less. Anyone have any ideas?
