With the CAI I found a large difference between it and my stock airbox. My cat is going bad and I needed a ORP so I had been looking at cfm and fswerks.....but got an update on a setup from dominant engineering and went with that. He makes some nice pieces for our cars. But performance wise.....FI is the way to go. More bang for the buck IMHO.
Wish you would have talked to me first. Ive heard Dom has been either taking a year of sundays to get parts out and some people still waiting to get things. when i talked to him as soon as i said money ready but how long till it arrives. he disappered and never answered.

the feeling from your CAI is your butt and ear dyno nothing more lol.

what do you mean by plug gap is larger with that coil pack? you gap the spark plugs to OEM spec. youll learn quick that these cars dont like non-OEM parts.

Oooooh.....I wanna get in on that ride if I can.

Jordan....stay away from those mounts if you like no vibration. It vibrates pretty good and could get annoying. I saved my stock mounts just to be safe.

Gap is set to. 065. I got the fswerks race to try out. If I need it quieter I'll get a resonator.
Butt and ear dunk....lol. I'm sure it's not some huge gain. I understand its just barely any improvements with this stuff if anything at all. I understand the stock part issues with these cars. Had to get a O2 sensor and stuck with stock. Read the issues that guys were plagued with on aftermarket sensors.

Have heard of issues with Dom, said he's sending it out tomorrow. Time will tell. If he's good to me he will definitely have a returning customer.

No the awd one. He needs exhaust, I think from mrt. And a tune still.

Race is gonna be way to loud with an orp. And will be raspy. Order the stealth section now lol. Then I might know someone that will buy the race section. Buddy has stealth with stock cat

How did you know the cat was going bad?

That's stock gap. Not any different

ALSO, NO MORE MODS TILL YOU DO YOUR TIMING BELT!

Saw a super retarded clean Sonic blue SVT Focus this morning, around 630ish on Goddard/Telegraph. Mid-wing, center exit borla and just exceptionally retarded clean. I was in my Subby right behind you! Car looks excellllent, I see you once in a while on my way to work :p

I've never been a huge fan of the look of the center exit Borla, but boy does it sound good.

Timing belt was done when I got the car....tensioners and all....serp too. Not worried about loud.....used to run a 390fe with no mufflers around town. Now being raspy might not be what I want but I'll see next week and then order a stealth section. And if ur buddy wants it then we can work something out. Cats going.....alot of raw fuel one day when I was having serious ignition issues. That's what did in the O2 as well. Pieces of the catalyst rattling in there as we'll. And the infamous smell of it cleaning itself. Stock gap isn't. 065
