    Because I was bored and felt like fabricating something, I made an addition to my DIY SRI. Disclaimer: I'm wasn't looking to get any performance gains. This was prompted from when I saw my IAT at about +50-60°F above ambient one day.
    Intake funnel/duct mounted right behind the bumper

    some of the hexagons in the faux vent cut out to match the passenger side

    The duct running to a fiberglass heat shield (heat reflective tape on the backside)

    and all of it put together

    IATs sit right at about +5-10°F over ambient and only creep up when I'm at a dead stop (most I saw was +25° over ambient).. Or if I gun it from a dead stop, then they creep back down to the aforementioned +5-10°F over ambient. No lie, took some inspiration from 27WON's intake, but it's not enclosed, and the intake source is right at the bumper instead of right at the fenderwell to engine bay opening.

    In the last few weeks, I have changed the oil and oil filter, brake fluid, transmission oil, engine and cabin air filters, and installed interior LED lights on my 2017 LX Hatchback. I am loving doing my own maintenance! It's so fun and I learn so much about how my car works! I'm only 20, and I can't wait to learn more when even more maintenance items come up (I'm looking at you, coolant flush!)

    Filled up with gas in Vegas, drove to Phoenix, drove around here for 10 days, and it took 9.5 gallons to fill up. That is 40 mpg. Not bad.

    Just got my 27WON big brake kit fitted. Chose Signature Orange as I wanted to differentiate my Sport Hatch from the red of the CTR. Very pleased with build quality, aesthetics and operation. Excellent work 27WON!

    Also fitted my Project Kits NeoChrome lug nut set that I picked up from Kamispeed on my recent Florida vacation. Thank you Saku and Josh - Great product and awesome customer service.

    Honestly? No. But I know it was coming up soon since in the service manual it says if you live in an area where your transmission runs hard you should change it every 25,000 miles. I looked at a thread talking about transmission oil changes and most people changed it around 30,000 miles. It is preventative maintenance after all; the earlier the better yeah?

    Haven’t ever changed a transmission oil myself but I have seen a couple vids on different cars. How’d you rate the difficulty from 1-10(higher being easier)?
