I'd just updated my build thread with all my new items too haha - took me an hour! Oh well - I'll do it again next weekend!
I thought I was going crazy haha! I didn't know they could do that. Hopefully you can redo everything you lost!

Thank you! Went back and forth a lot before I decided on the Vossens but haven't regretted it, they're great.

Finished the header install on Saturday! Might be adding mufflers soon, it absolutely screams at only half throttle.
Sound clip coming soon...

I went with the Stainless Works high flow cats. And I previously installed an x-pipe and deleted the mufflers.

Thank you so much! The Stainless Works really seem like a great product. They went on perfect, no troubles. I'd definitely recommend them. The stereo took a long time and a lot of work so it's so great hearing positive feedback! Thank you!

My new 15" slotted and dimpled rotors finally arrived! One step closer to installing the massive 6-piston Brembos. Starting the custom fabrication this weekend... Stay tuned!

Car looks great. I love that transmission shifter. If you don't mind me asking, where did you pick that up?
