    Im so jelly of your color <3.
    TTR has some hood deals check em out. And lol you beat me to getting a s3 heat exchanger. I had a ottp but sold it. Ain't like how it looked so plain. Getting the zzp soon though. As for mounts. Get em. No wheel hop when you go higher power. Im stg 2 and have wheel hop like crazy. Installing a torque dampener for the meantime though.

    I sent this thru the Intranet™

    Bass Waves, thanks I love the color, I was greatly disappointed today though. I got off work and went to the car and noticed someone decided to back into the side of my driver door, left a small dent but didnt leave a note and the camera's didnt show anything so that sucks.

    the ZZP heat exchanger is extremely easy to install and works great! I love the look of it as well, it really fills that front gap. I cant wait to get the stage 2 kit just not sure what all has to be done once I get it, I havent had a lot of time to research it yet. Are the motor mounts pretty easy to install?

    Start with a zzp stg 3. Best bang for the $$$$. I have stg 2 and its ok. In need of more for time being. I haven't done any rotated trans mount install yet so can't tell ya. I do however have a dampers but its still not gonna be enough.


    Sucks eggs about your door. I tend to park far away everywhere I go with the car.

    Ours are very simple, ours come with color step by step install instructions with pictures. Upper mount takes 15 minutes and the Tranny mounts take about 1 hours for both front and rear.

    Awesome, Sounds like I will be spending some much needed time with the balt in the garage soon. I need to get an intake first, the one that was on it til today was causing the car to mess up when taking off, not sure why but it made it seem as if it wasnt getting enough air and bogged out kinda. So i took it off and put the stock intake on and it hasnt done it yet.

    Turbo tech racing usually has sales on their injen intakes. Lots of ppl run them.

    Lol I guess you getting the typhoon effect on your cheap intake?. Causes codes because too much air coming thru.

    I must have horrible luck, I got behind a dump truck today that was carrying rocks. Got home and washed the BALT and there are several chips in my windshield and the hood...
