Oh and do not test drive with front clip off. Derrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Guess I be ordering a new set tomorrow. Uploading vid shortly.
LMAO that same thing happened to me when I took my bumper off and tested the new BOV spring. But mine didn't look that bad!

K thanks for the suggestion. What size do i need? Jon had some extra tubing on hand so we got that air filter down there...thanks for the inspiration. (note to self...no fording rivers in this thing....not properly equipped for that activity)

Jon seems to think the SS fender wells clip in differently because he said he drove my bro's SS like this when he was testing out the SC and it did not do this. LOL. CYA?

Have a listen. Jon seems to think the belt may have little too much tension. Going to recheck it tomorrow. Do not have catchcan hooked up yet either. Will do that tomorrow too. Gonna need some help with that cuz i may have misplaced the installation instructions. Good for me.


First drive pt 1 we have boost. Had clutch slippage going into 3rd. It's never done that before. I'm guessing the stock clutch which only has 10k miles on it ain't gonna cut it. I ran it hard last Sat vs a Benz and shifted nice and firm into 3rd and it didn't do that. I guess the silver lining is my motor just might be making more power....just a hunch I have.



Frist drive pt 2 Oops the wind is pushing the fender wheel wells against the tires.

Awesome job. Can't wait to see it in person.

Just ordered front wheel well liners. They are VIN specific-the have 2 different designs so Jon was right about there being 2 different designs. Right one is coming from Jackson MS be here tomorrow the left one which is way more crucial is coming from Michigan and will take 4 days. it only went just over a mile on last night's test drive. We did go kinda fast though.
