    just ordered ngk sparks, delphi coils, and 6 SMP index 12 injectors (im assuming it has the decouplers), and tools for $1,100!!! cheaper than just the 6 injectors themselves!

    Nice! Where did you pick up the Ohlins from?
  4. Nice Maintenance and Mod thread. Car looks great, love the color. What is your next performance modification? Looks like you have all the preventative maintenance covered.

    once the coils/plugs/injectors go in, MHD OTS map/jb4, ride that out until i can get a protune. going to save up for ST so this thread might be sleeping for a while LOL, or until my tuning itch starts acting up....you know how that is :rolleyes:

    We've got a few tuners here, @V8bait @WedgePerformance @Twisted Tuning forgive me if I'm missing any, feel free to toss your name in the hat :)

    Haha, very possible. You know, the funny thing, is I don't even have an FMIC yet! Whoever wins this will have one before I do. My only hardware mod I've paid for is a @AD-ENG 6266 Single Turbo kit.
  9. Well you did it right and did all of the maintenance first and the suspension. Maybe LSD, inlets, and tuning until the stockers blow. Will be a fun car to drive.

    Definitely for OTS maps. I'll most likely be going with a local tuner my friends have had amazing great sucess/experience with. Tuning Tech FS

    Installed MHD couple hours ago. OTS map 1. even without down pipes, there's a significant increase in when boost comes in. about 400-500 rpm quicker, comes in around 2k instead of 2.4k. sitting on balding Pilot Super Sports, 3rd gear at 60 with a slow-moderate to wind up had my tires starting to lose traction at 3k rpm. rain started to come in so normal driving for the the most part

    Got done installing 6 new NGK ILZKBR7B8DG spark plugs and 6 new Delphi GN10571 ignition coils. super easy, just my dumbass always seems to work on cars at night which makes it take x2 longer. old bosch plugs looked alright after 30,000+ miles, but some of the coils had lots of oil on them. specifically cylinder 3 and 2.

    Also is it normal for oil/debris to build up in the coil cylinders? cylinders 1and 6 were clean, but the rest were dirty
    Cylinder 2
    Cylinder 3
    Cylinder 4

    When you do logs, you should turn logging to auto. So above a certain throttle threshold it begins loggin and stops when you let off. All the other stuff in between pulls just makes it hard to sort through. Also make sure you do a full pull all the way to redline.
