I had a busy couple days. After 8 weeks, my APR wing got dropped off Sunday.

So I had to put it on...

Then today, got the call my carbon hood had arrived. Jumped in the car for a 2 hour round trip.

Now it’s all tucked away...

If anyone has a recommendation for a great paint shop in Houston, I’m open to suggestions.
Beauty man! I can ask around if you haven't found a paint shop yet - let me know. Is that the Varis hood?

Actually got to drive it after setting up the Flashpro. Just have the base 93 octane calibration and wasn’t expecting much but damn, it gets to “go to jail” speed very quick. Some guy in a 10th gen sport hatch must have thought I was trying to race him, and that he won, when I shot out of nowhere and then let off. I was t expecting it to accelerate that fast at like, half-3/4 throttle lol.
Tomorrow I’ll install the PRL FMIC and see how that feels.

Look forward to hearing about that combo. I have the PRL FMIC and have been thinking about a base tune.

Dressed up the engine bay with APR Performance (3) piece CF Radiator cooling plate kit.

Required a little bit of modification to fit, but not bad.

Nice. Let me know if this makes a difference. I have been tempted to add those pieces.

Feel some of your pain, Steve. A rock nailed me also, about about a week ago...

Windshield was replaced today. Highly recommend going through insurance. Shouldn’t negatively affect your rate. Paid a deductible of $250, but the OEM glass is over $600 alone.

Windshield replacement is free in Florida through insurance. (Not sure if they will do OEM... but I would do OEM for sure.

Although its called a 3-piece radiator “cooling” plate kit, I don’t think it has any effect in that regards, heh.

They are just nice looking CF pieces to dress up the engine bay.... but they do a nice job of that ;)
