Install was very easy. I can see the increase in throttle response but not sure yet if I understand all the hype. Not displeased but not sure on where everyone get that butt dyno increase from
I finally got the car all washed so pics to come tomorrow

So while I was swapping my throttle bodies i figured i would snap some pics of my Intake manifold guts. Now I put a Elite CC on at about 500 miles, plumbed my driver side evac and did a breather valve at 6000 miles and am currently at 17000 miles. here is what the fruits of my labor have done to my intake manifold

seems to have been well worth my time. I figured more had slipped by then what I saw in my Catch can but I guess not!

So I threw an A/C belt for the 3rd time now the other day. I brought it in to the dealership to get it fixed again and this time they tell me it was all the modifications I have done to the engine that caused the A/C belt to hop off the pully. The changed it but informed me that they will not do anymore belts under warrenty for me.

Now my issue with this is that I have thrown this belt 2 others time, first was with ZERO modfications and the second I had a CC and CAI. Now that I have headers, that is what is causing my A/C belt to slip? I'm smelling a little fowl play here but if I thrown this belt again I will be having a nice chat with the local Service rep.

This almost makes me want to give in and just void the whole thing and get a CAM and TUNE done on it.............. still thinking about what im gona do!

Also finally paid off my AAC concept mirros last week so they should be here soon!
