Yup. When compared to a Lambo, Ferarri, or space shuttle.


Instead of parts from places like Italy or Germany, mine come from places like Romania. lol

Ok so here are some of the parts that came in. Many of these parts were recommended by the person tuning the car. He owns By Design in California. He has an amazing reputation and is a wealth of knowledge. He is part of a few race teams and tuned cars all over the world. He has tried a lot of things and know what works. I told him more than anything, this is a street car I want to drive anywhere and be comfortable. Performance is secondary.

So first up is the Rennline tuneable semi-solid engine mounts. These are kind of cool as they come with three different durometer bushings to set them up to your liking. Being as I plan to drive this car a lot and long distances, I want adder performance without large increases in noise, vibration, and harshness. So these will be nice to dial them in. Aftermarket mounts have a good reputation where they describe the changes going from the engine cradle being dragged around in turns becomes a much more connected experience.







We went with the Sachs Performance clutch. Most people run what sellers call a Sachs 2.5 clutch. They use a Sachs pressure plate and a factory GT3 disc. The GT3 uses a standard spring set up in the hub to help dampen the shock. The plate in my kit does not have springs in a hub. This has steel that has waves in it. This is what helps with the dampening. Springs can break and come out of the disc. The plate I have supposedly also transfers more torque quickly. My tuner swears by these and I am trusting him with the recommendation.







Cobb Access Port. Not much to say here haha





Injector Dynamics 1300cc injectors. I am all about that E85 life. So these are the best choice. Along with the normal ID reputation, these also have all stainless steel inside them. They were built for E85 use.




Torque Solutions turbo inlets. Get more air to the turbos just makes sense. The factory inlets look to be somewhat restrictive.


snagged from 6speedonline member







A couple more packages should be showing up this afternoon. More to come folks!

I waited a whole 5 days to order parts. I think I did a good job. haha


Had the leaking slave cylinder not been an issue, it would have been exhaust and an off the shelf tune for this year. Oh well. lol

I'll keep this moving to make Mook happy. haha

So the overnighted parts from...Romania? Whaaaa?

Kline Innovations stainless exhaust. It is a 3" ID, to a 2.5" ID at the cat delete (cats not here yet). Then it goes to a 2.25" ID into the mufflers. Keep in mind most exhaust places advertise the size at the OD. Depending on the size wall that can reduce the ID a lot.

Anyways, it should sound good, not drone, and not be so loud at idle and cruising speeds.

Not even close. My play fund account hates me right now. It needs serious replenishing before I do anything else. For like a year or two. Thank goodness for months and months of 55-60 hour work weeks and OT. haha

I had never heard of them. Thanks for the heads up. Always good to have people familiar with your car close by. Seems like they set up track days and events too. I will check them out for sure.
