Time to install some goodies!

Its gonna be a busy Tuesday for me. Im going to be installing my FSWerks Race exhaust, CFM lower engine torque mount W/ Street bushings, DRT cross drilled and slotted rotors, Painting my calipers black, and Plasti Dip'ing my wheels. I'll post pics of before, during, and after, and if I can get a good enough quality video Ill post one of my exhaust also.

Yeah it was I had it on jackstands from about 10am to about 3:30 most of the time was waiting for the Plasti Dip and caliper paint to dry. Also while I had it up I changed the oil

Yeah I got the stealth pipe also just in case i decide to get the header and yeah I'd like to eventually go turbo just gotta keep saving. The rotors feel fine (at first the make some noise but they have quieted down) they feel like they grab alot better too, I guess I'll have to wait and see if they hold up since people say that cross drilled have a tendency to crack and yeah when I bought the rotors they came with Centric pads and the rotors are Centric blanks that are cross drilled and slotted by Design Rotor Technology

I got the Race W/ the Stealth pipe because I don't know if im going to get a header or just wait and go turbo but with both pipes and shipping to me it was around $514 but I also got it when they had a 10% off coupon so it would be a little more now

They were only $145 Free shipping with a set of Centric ceramic Posi-Quiet pads, I got them on eBay but they come from a company called Design Rotor Technology. What they did was took a factory replacement Centric blank rotor then cross-drilled and slotted them themselves.
