Went out to the garage today and installed my intake & throttle body...along with an Elite Engineering catch can from JDP Motorsports!

Everything fired up perfect...no issues. Only made 2 trips up and down the driveway though because of the snow

A few pics I shot today :

Thanks! The tailights and markers were done with vinyl tinting...works very well, and if you ever want to remove it, it's a snap. The tailight bezels are cyber grey metallic.
