I feel that. Normally I put everything I buy on my own car, but I'm paying $60 to have the installer deliver and install my new Enkei + Toyo combo wheels tomorrow. Too hot, man.

I'll give it a month tops :p

(Nothing wrong with keeping her stock, but I know when I drove off the lot I said the same thing... and ended up buying an Injen CAI 3 days later. BTW DON'T BUY AN INJEN PRODUCT FOR THIS CAR, EVER!)
Haha, I said the same thing -- added a Ktuner, upgraded RS and end links, RMM inserts, CTR shifter with Acuity upgrades, and some cosmetic mods. Really don't plan on any bolt ons though.

How much has the CAI reduced your IAT's?

The Injen CAI is a piece of trash, don't bother (I have one I'll GIVE you, it's that bad). Trust me, if you're gonna mod, get the PRL. All the best KTuner tunes use the PRL Race MAF. It's silicone which helps with hint sink and it still makes the badass turbo noises you want!
Plus, they're almost the same price anyways.

EDIT: it's also not bad to install. You just need a simple socket set, some screwdrivers, and a little elbow grease. The hardest part (besides removing the awful stock air box) is the piping around the fender into the fog light housing, but even that's not too bad.

Temp wise, I'd say that I'm usually 15-20F over ambient air with heat soak, but when I'm moving I'm very close to ambient. the PRL filter is in the fog light housing, so if you give it a vent it really helps with cooling when you're moving.

Thanks for the info. If I do go the CAI route, I'll probably get the 27won as I like the idea of the filter being easily accessible. Also, having been caught in a few flash floods, I like that it's less likely to get hydrolocked.

Speaking of installing shit in the heat.... Luckily, I was able to take it off and do 95% of the work indoors. I got my RedlineGoods center console covers in (still yet to order the door armrest ones. Other than the small misalignments and folds you can only see when you're looking for them, they look and feel amazing. I opted for the black Nappa leather with red stitching.

Let's hope for a better start, I'm not sure why they seem to struggle with that.
Big facts man. play a full 60 and they'll be good. I text one of my good friends during every game (she was actually at the last game) and we started just talking hella shit every time Carey Price would make a save. Stupid inconsequential shit like, "Carey Price pours the milk before the cereal."

Temp wise, I'd say that I'm usually 15-20F over ambient air with heat soak, but when I'm moving I'm very close to ambient. the PRL filter is in the fog light housing, so if you give it a vent it really helps with cooling when you're moving.
Glad to see my ghetto fabulous DIY RAM intake duct keeps my IATs at a range comparable to off the shelf intakes. Summer in-motion temps usually peak at 15-20F over ambient, winter time is 5-10

I buy her VGK gear (she's a big fan bc of me) and I've taken her to games. She also gets mad at me when I do something to my car and she's not able to assist bc her parents have split custody, and she's usually at her mom's place when that happens.
As a Pens fan, I'm jealous of some of the VGK gear, and glad that Fleury is getting to shine there.

No rules saying you can't rock other teams gear. I mean, especially if you're buying flower gear, it's well warranted. That, and different divisions and all.

I wore my Steve Yzerman autographed Wings jersey to my first ever VGK game. Got a lot of compliments (and a joking threat to steal it). The Wings will always be my favorites, but the Knights are my guys unless they're playing Detroit.

Finally got around to installing my Accord endlinks today. For some reason, committed to doing it when it was 115F (46C) out, the sun out, and the ground hotter than shit. Nothing laying a towel on the ground couldn't solve. lol
You need a creeper.

My dad has a creeper. I tried the creeper back when I was working on my EM2. I didn't like it. Sometimes I need my back to be static on the ground for extra leverage against extra stingy fasteners

As long as you have a quality jack and stands, it’s not an issue.
Mine are fine but I really don't like being under the car with them all the way up.

I always use my creeper when I get under our vehicles.
