I went and picked up my intake, and damn the guy did an awesome job. OEM textured black, will look super clean in the bay. Might try and get some custom Sterling Grey/Black AEM logo's made up to put on the intake or I might leave it plain, who knows?





Then I was off to the exhaust shop...hmmm dual outlet for stock exhaust?? I think not!!



Also, please excuse the dirty car. Had a ton of rain today and I had to drive about 2 miles on gravel road to get to the powercoater...

New 2.5'' pipe going in...

2.5'' pipe into 2.5'' resonator...


Into Borla transverse and finally, glorious and sexy titanium tips!!






Final impressions: I love the look, the exhaust guy and myself absolutely nailed the look I was going for. The sound is absolutely amazing. I was worried about it being too loud, but it's not, it's just right. Now if SCT ever comes out with a tune, and I get a race header, I'll probably go ahead and add another Borla muffler in front of the resonator, but right now it's perfect.

It sounds like a cross between a Subi WRX and a G35 coupe.
