    Next was the MBRP Street Catback Exhaust with H-Pipe I didn't have any pictures of that installation unfortunately. Needless to say it definitely sounds good though.

    Next is probably Air Raid CAI just been holding off in the process of moving from California don't want to risk failing inspection with it here because California loves their regulations on freedom. Almost done with appearance mods mostly just want black stripes and put my black 5.0 badges on. Some LED side marker lights as well. Getting some Steeda Sway Bars soon too.

    [MENTION=21193]RaceRed5.0[/MENTION] Looking good!

    I have the same howler badge as you, waiting to be installed atm. How'd you put it on? Did you tape the emblem to the backing first and then screw the back plates on after?

    Ford Performance Pack 2 Upgrade

    I went to Hillbank Motorsports in Irvine to get it done, yeah my brother and I could of done it ourselves but I have heard good things about Hillbank and they do good work very friendly people. I usually get the cold shoulder in these types of places for some reason but these people were welcoming and willing to help. If you are in the area I recommend them. At Hillbank.jpg

    Now I will say there is a noticeable difference a lot smoother shifting and I shaved about .3 to .4 off my 0 to 60 times, I do plan on getting a blower later down the road but for now this is good upgrade that I should of gotten a year earlier. The only semi-annoying part is the 87mm Throttle body door popping close when the car is turned off its loud but its not that bad. It's worth getting imho.

    Mishimoto Direct Fit Baffled Oil Separator System looks good for some odd reason this came with an extra "In" on the catch can I have no idea what it was for so I plugged it up. Overall I like it thought apart from that. Mishimoto Catch Can.jpg
