Kook's green catted. They offered to do an SCT dyno tune but I'm going through Wengerd and getting 93/Flex/E85. Plus you can tune with your phone and data log with RCT+. It's pretty sweet.
Nice man.. you go 1 3/4 or 7/8?

been thinking about doing the kooks catted as well over the winter. probably just the regular cats tho cause don’t have the restrictions here (PA registered car)

let us know what you think of the sound and if you get any noticeable gains, bet it’s gonna be sweet

1-7/8th. I definitely want the top end power and want my redline higher like my 2017 had. We aren't really utilizing this GT350 manifold much capped at 7400 RPM with the stock redline. It should pull all the way up to 8k.

I went with the green cats in case I go with some mild boost later on. These cats can handle 650-700 rwhp fine. Anything above that and I'd go catless but I'm not chasing high numbers. Something like an ESS G2 kit would be fine for me.

Shift knob installed. Was way easier than I expected it to be.

Also did the pioneer sub swap (why does the factory one feel like it was made on the same assembly line as McDonalds happy meal toys?). Hardest part was getting the trim ring off without breaking anything. Huge improvement though and the system now sounds great.

Think no more mods for me though lol. Any additional money here is going to have to go to tires for the winter...

Also swapped out the 22 CAI for a 20 GT350 piece. No carbon filter or restrictions. So far it has not thrown any check engine lights or ran poorly.
Installed 20 GT350 CAI

Did you notice any power difference after removing the carbon filter?

Im not sure if is or a mind trick but, the is throttle response is better and you can actually hear the air entering the throttle body with the hood up.

Installed Steeda ultralight low profile jacking rails today. Elected to reuse the beefier factory hardware versus the supplied bolts.

I've had mine out for a few days now, I assumed it was a placebo, but in certain situations where I roll into the throttle, the car feels smoother, still might be a placebo, but it does feel different. If it added back the 10HP the cars lost(which im sure it did not) you would never feel it.

Yeah, mine did some but not a lot.
Which hood struts did you try? I don't recall seeing if you mentioned it in a previous post. I just got my steeda ones on a couple weeks ago and they're perfect.

Exactly, my thoughts as well.

I tried the Ford Performance ones and then the Redlines took a little hood adjusting but they're working now as good as I can get them.

The hood rubs for me on the passenger side because the lower bracket is too tall in comparison to the 2018+ Redlines. The Steedas probably also fit just like the Redlines.
