Have you heard the FRPP exhaust (either in person or on video)? I'm really curious as to how it sounds.

Sorry, no. I believe it is a Borla w/o the resonator that follows the header. Should be louder then the Borla.

I went with the k&n drop in. At some point I'll do the newmission mod, I haven't decided how I want to do it yet.

Simply the K&N drop will not give you any extra hp/tq. It should maybe give better throttle response. Other than that, you'll need to do other customization to get any performance improvement (newmission etc). The K&N is still definitely worth it though.

What were the "venison mod" and the "newmission mod" that were mentioned in this?

Newmission mod is where you cut open the bottom of the airbox and route a 3" hose to the bumper for ram air flow.

Venison mod is where you hit a deer and push the hood back so cold air can get in directly.

Thanks for explaining the newmission too!

One is ram air, the other is ram deer. I have intimate experience with both.
