Got the bug

Alright, must be contageous, I have the mod bug. I just recieved my car after 18 days of repairs and I just ordered a Roto Fab cold air intake (thanks Tyler @ JDP), scheduled a muffler delete at 8 am tomorrow morning, and got my Elite catch can in the mail today. I'm anxious to see how the car feels after this!

Haha same thing happened with my last vehicle. The SS has been stock for 10 months its time to step it up. Just not looking to void my warranty so it may stop there for a bit.

That's what I'm talkin about. I decided to go with a resonator delete/x pipe and a muffler delete.

Mine started with halltech Cai, scoop, and slp1 loud mouth about two months ago. I changed out the loud mouth for npp and just installed my kooks headers tonight. My backroom has jre rough idle blower cam, springs, rods, under drive pulley, oil pump and other things getting ready to go on. I have 6k on the od and bought brand new 7 months ago. It's a bad bug to catch and an expensive one

I'd think twice about the muffler delete. I believe that is illegal in most, if not all states. You may not pass an inspection without the muffler.

I'm not a big fan of the muffler delete either, makes the car sound "unrefined" silumular to ricers. Save your money for a good exhaust. That's the second mod. Right after the CAI hooks you. Lol. After the exhaust mod 3 is a custom tune.

I like how the muffler delete sounds on a v8, if you had a v6 I would say definitely don't do a muffler delete

I just went through with the muffler delete and I must say it sounds pretty darn good on the ls3 haha. Unfortunately, it's not as good as a cat back, but it will do for now. The cold air intake should be here Wednesday I'm assuming. I'll probably install the catch can as well today.

Thanks for the order! I'm glad you finally got your car back on the road. Hopefully it's better than new! Enjoy your new intake and let the modding begin!

Installed my Roto-Fab cold air today and man I love it! Well worth the price I got it for. Took about 40-45 minutes to install with precise instructions. I had to do it before work so I'll put the catch can on after work then hopefully I can post pics. Is there anyway to upload from an iPhone? New I know.
