Can't wait to see some pics posted!! Where did you find black DDVs? Also, how come you decided not to get a charge pipe? I've been debating between the ER charge pipe and just a forge ddv upgrade.

Black Forge DDV's from NAMOTORSPORTS, i got the Full Kit from ER, includes the charge pipe. everything will be black anodized with the FMIC having the ER symbol stenciled in RED. Thanks to Fred at ER for the hookup I'm super stoked about the product should be delivered tomorrow i will take some pics pre-install and post.

I am really starting to appreciate the concept of a better oil cooler. My IATs are usually pretty darn solid with my FMIC upgrade but my oil temps go to crap with the stock oil cooler. I do think that this will be my next upgrade because when I track I cannot make more than 2 passes in a row without having to let the car sit for 15 minutes because of oil temps.

what's wrong w/ the WeissLichts? all the pics ive seen look pretty good. The Oil Cooler from my initial inspection is a pretty bad ass unit. Very nicely made, high quality for sure, its wayyy bigger than the stock one too, and reading through the instructions will have a fair amount of cutting/fabrication in the wheel well to get it to fit properly.

Well, I went back to stock in Angels bcs WeissLichts just wasn't what I wanted. The outer ring is ... well, how could I describe it because the outer ring is kinda missing

You will see it by your own eyes Smac355. That oil cooler is my future aswell..

Just put on the P3 Boost Gauge this afternoon. Install very straightforward, just used the instruction per the P3 website. Took it out for a spin hit 13.9 PSI only Perf mods installed right now are Dinan St II and Exhaust, not too bad as their site claims 13 PSI. Overall the gauge is real nice, total OEM feel, don't think many people would think twice about it being aftermarket. VERY HAPPY w/ it!

Is it normal for it to show negative boost when not under acceleration though? Just not that familiar with boost gauges, turbos since this is my first turbo-ed car. Thanks guys. Kinda rainy today any Flyers agme is about to start so didnt have time to take any pics. Soon.
