Rutherford's '14 SE HB Build

In the beginning there was a 2014 SGM SE Hatch...



I plan on making this the best daily driver I can afford.

I have started with the Snorkel Delete, ST air inlet, and Green open-end drop in filter.

1. Remove snorkel and all plastic pins without losing them to engine gremlins. Expert Mode [ON] off.


3. Install ST air inlet for maximum overdrive.

4. Install Green air filter. You might want to keep a stick handy keep away all the women that will come running when they hear the new engine sound.


5. Apply stickers for +5 Charisma.


6. Enjoy delicious Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 15. (Pictured above in ex. X51)

I love the way the car sounds now and I can definitely feel a difference in throttle response.

RIP good gas mileage.

Thanks.

Small cosmetic stuff like a/c nobs etc. will come soon.

Next big thing I want to do is put on some Eibach SPORTLINE springs! I need to be lower to the ground. After that I want to get a RSB and then start thinking about exhaust.

I love my sportlines and exhaust! Also I've done the HVAC knobs and love them. One of the next things on my list is a rear swaybar. I think I'm leaning towards whiteline.

I guess, technically, my next mod will be the piano black grill replacement.
