Pretty sure he likes his, he talked me into getting one... didnt have to twist my arm too hard but it was from his recommendation. Tuners really make the car come alive, so be it piggy back or whatnot. This is super easy to remove, for the price they sold it at during memorial day it was hard to beat, and it works.

The Forge works with the Tekada. You just have to purchase a different turbo inlet tube. Yames's wasn't available yet when I purchased the Forge otherwise I would have supported him instead as he is a very cool $hit!

Here look at this:

Very nice. I was looking at the scorcher on aFe’s website the other night. I like the idea of only plugging things in, no tapping into harness wires etc.

The install is pretty easy. The hardest part is getting the switch wire into the engine bay. I used the grommet where the hood latch cable runs through. Good luck with whatever you go with.

Best regards,

I am pretty new to the car seen as this is my first performance car out of college but with that said. Why the mishimoto catch can over the more common brands that I tend to see people get? Same question applies to the Wagner tuning fmic? And would you happen to have a link to that magnetic oil drain plug?

I put the Mishimoto can on before any other can was available. I used the can for the 1.6L turbo motor and it worked fine and captures the vapor oil it should. I think it's a lot cheaper now too. I like the way it fits and is out of the way of pretty much everything. I never had a problem with it's performance.

With the Wagner inter-cooler I went with that because no one else used them yet. The install is easier than the rest and the performance is just as good. Wagner has been making inter-coolers for German cars for a very long time so I wanted to give them a shot. Awesome inter-cooler and extremely well made. No complaints!

Here is the link to a few of the items you like. Just scroll down and pick which one you want to view.

Already ordered the alcantara center console for my first mod, and I’m selling off my other hobby and about to drop at least 3 grand at one time on mods. I call it Christmas in August.

Ya, I'm thinking of taking on another hobby too. I want to learn electric guitar over the winter. I am thinking on buying one. Honestly, I should have done that a long time ago because I love music. 60's, 70's, 80's and some 90's rock rule!!! I am a singer but always wanted to learn guitar. When I was younger I could play it by ear if I listened to the song over and over. lol.... I just let it slip by....

Best regards,

-Mike

But you still need to get wheels, some carbon fiber pieces, a stuffed turbo, a full tune, a body kit and some bride racing seats!!!

I’m sorry I’m just joking haha. I’m having a hard time practicing restraint myself. I just bought the add w1 catch can, the Yames turbo inlet and an alcantara armrest. I’m just getting started... ugh so many things I want! I still have to get the afe intake so I can use my turbo inlet, that’s definitely next on the list.

@Ghost. Oddly, I am a 'cellist at night. Start playing the guitar, dude. It has strings! I have my music and a big instrument to haul around. My car requirements are that it fits my 'cello and my wife. My car is going to be up on jack stands this winter. Uniq rigid collars and I think a strut tower brace will make for a little diversion. I really don't think this car needs much in mods. It seems pretty good right from the factory, but I even modded my $7k carbon fiber 'cello so it is in the blood. Even my wooden 'cello has parts my luthier is not happy with. I am always in search of making things just a bit better and more importantly mine. My Gen Coupe after the rigid collars and a larger rear sway bar has a nice linear steering. Really nice. Rigid collars should be the required mod on every car!
