I love the look of your car by the way!

I see you have a lot of the mods I do and was wondering if I could ask a couple questions on some new mods I'm contemplating.

I like to listen to music and talk on the phone in the car as a daily driver. If I did a mid pipe, would it get pretty loud in the cabin? Also, did you lose any low end torque or gain turbo lag?

Same question on the charge pipe/IC. Any lag? Anything you wouldn't recommend that you've done?


My mods:

1--Remus Quad Exhaust
2--Agency Power Downpipes
3--JB4 Tuner
4--JIC Coilvers
6--Removed rear coilovers, replaced with H&R Springs in rear(still need better shocks, but couldn't stand ride/sound of rear Coilovers)

Need advice on:

1--Mid Pipe
2--Sway bars vs. bmw perf susp vs. new rear shocks/JIC coils up front vs.?
3--Oil cooler(keeps losing boost/high oil temps on track days)
5--Charge Pipe/BOV
7--Oil Catch Can
