OP, I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt you are not a troll and provide you the following guidance:

#1 - stickers are not considered an 'external mods', I'd go as far as saying even installing strips (as I did to mine) are not considered an 'external mod'. An external mod would be adding a body kit, adding a hood vent, adding a front splitter, adding/replacing a rear spoiler, etc.

#2 - (before you even get there) performance mods are anything that add HP and torque to the rear wheel. It doesn't include painting or adding stickers to you things under your hood. These are nice and are great if you plan on showing your vehicle, but they are only appearance enhancements ... not mods.

IMO and others, there is a big difference between 'mods' and appearance add ons/choices. My intent is not to belittle your post, but to educate. I am actually looking forward to what you do moving forward and following your progress....and maybe learning something along the way. Good Luck with your build

Okay guys, thanks for all the positive feedback. I may order a GoPro Hero 4 Silver just so I can document my next sticker placement, and power gains at a higher quality. Sticker should get here tomorrow. I hope. I'll keep you guys posted.<3

Here... here! Well said! To each their own...

Such as 6 catch cans plumbed in series. Never in parallel.

It took me until the 3rd post to realize this was going to be a funny tongue in cheek thread. What can I say, I'm gullible.

Now, however, it would seem some of the stick up the a$$ crowd really wants to debate performance gains on the subject of stickers. For god's sake get a pretend life like the rest of us so you too can [try] enjoy the fun discussions posted here. (lol...)

Dude, as usual I agree with very much of what you say. In this instance however, I must correct your label of photo 1 being a black mamba. It is in fact a very well-taken photo of my late mother-in-law (on one of her happier days). Please do keep up the good work and all your irreverence.

Sorry for not updating this build guys. My sticker is being delayed. It should have been here by now. I want to make a video of me applying the sticker on my Camaro and showing the difference it makes but I can't yet. My GOPRO arrived but not the sticker. Stay positive. Hopefully it arrives soon.

If you would use amazon instead of ebay you would have had the sticker before you ordered it.

Yeah brah. You can just download them now or have a drone crash them into your crib.

Here's a short video of the improvements my window sticker made to my car.

Enjoy.



It's day and night really.
