Where did you find the M Performance exhaust? I couldn't find it in stock anywhere. How much did it cost? and was it an easy install?

Thanks
Thanks!

Installed stainless brake lines, new bleed nipples, e9X clutch delay/lock valve, new DOT4 LV fluid and flush.

The CDV is a must, what an incredible difference... especially combined with the clutch bump stop.

Replaced transmission fluid with Redline D4.
Huge improvement over the "lifetime" factory fill.

Swapped out the factory plastic coolant flange for the billet version from rein.
Peace of mind.

Factory piece wasn't too bad, but it was definitely weakened.

The replacement piece is sitting in my trunk, just haven't got around to installing it yet.

Oil change, differential fluid change, stupid retention clip popped off the top helper spring pin on the clutch pedal (pain to reinstall), replaced a couple of mashed jack points, washed and waxed...
