I went to the local stealership @140, so I saved a bunch of money. I told the guy in San Jose that $170 was what I was charged to get work done on my Elise... That's just ridiculous but that's how they make their money.

As far as the kit goes, I absolutely love it. The Borla exhaust makes such a great noise, sounds like a nasty growling V8 and not a measly little I4.

Seth1980 AND... they matched the price from true blue racing. They sold it to me for 455 + tax.

Oooh! Didn't know that!
Thanks! It does make sense to convert to a performance shifting. It's basically a proper shift light.

I'll check it out tonight when I commute back home.

So far so good. I really like the exhaust noise, it's not too loud and with that in place, the car actually sounds like somewhat of a sports car.

Of course I retained all the stock parts.
One thing I did notice is that the shifting indicator no longer shows up. Not that I mind but I'm just wondering what the reason for that to have disappeared is.

I'll setup a dyno run sometimes next week. I forgot about doing that before I got the pack installed but I'll just have to assume a stock baseline.

I'm running octane 91 only (from day 1) so that's taken care of. Sadly, California is an Octane 91 state, like Oregon and a handful of others :(
