Does RTD make a DSSR connector for n52? I didnt see it on their websites.

And sorry if this been asked - did you notices any changes in vibrations or noise with AKG motor mount and the solid transission mounts
I got the DSSR from AKG, and I agree 100% with what @chris_flies said about the Trans and Motor Mount upgrades you the harder durometer. There will be more noise but it's definitely livable!

Makes total sense. Thanks for the explanation.

Belt and Pulleys Replaced along with a new OFHG, Fresh NGK's and Coil Packs and she's running like a champ again!!! Holding off on the VCG until the spring when I install the MILVs and maybe an Exhaust Cam if one finally comes out for the engine...

Nice.

I did my Milvs a few months ago and they make a dramatic difference below 4K rpm.

I rented the spring removal tool. With the money you get back from returning your old supports, it almost pays for it.

It makes changing them out so much easier!

Any chance you could post some video clips of her? Would love to hear the exhaust on it.

Looks beautiful!

Dyno video incoming very soon when the shop gets some free time... Very curious what she makes before doing the MILVS and BPC tune. Still currently on the AA tune. Having a difficult time passing OBD emissions at the moment due to an EVAP error (No CEL and not affecting drivability what so ever) that is driving me cRaZy. Studio RSR Cage is in production and the rear end has been GUTTED. Debating to do an Carbon Sunroof Delete (Color Matched to Space Grey of course...) for the sake of weight reduction and lowing the center of gravity even more.

I'm wondering if there are some diy's on milv installation. Including the use of any cheater tools to make it easy. I've seen some short clips on YouTube but need something step by step to be comfortable.
