Bought on 08/26 and fell in love on the way home. Took my Rockford Fosgate P2 12" outta my old car and installed it along with 4 Memphis Audio 5.25's and a Kenwood KMR-350U deck. Sounds great! Sound system CHECK

Flowmaster on, wouldn't call it an easy bolt on app though. The guy helping me cut the pipe short on accident and it leaked, took it to a shop and they popped an extra length in and welded it all purtty for $60 haha at least I tried. Sounds great, the force II kit comes with a series 60 delta, very subtle sound but still got some attitude.

Got the AEM intake in, heat shield was a pain and didn't line up right AND the bolts were crap. Ended up using one AEM nut, one factory bolt and leaving the other hole empty. Also I have a TB spacer so I had to drill a hole in the heat shield to put the rubber mount higher... The pipe rubs a tiny on the hood so I got a small bike tube patch on the under side on the hood till I can grind off the lil bump that it's touching.

Came off easy, used a tie wire to start it then noticed it was scratching the lil bump so I stopped and grabbed some weedeater string and used that. Worked great!! Gonna buy some penetrating oil on my way back to work for the bumper bolts and spray em good for a couple days before trying those off

Eh spacer probably is but f it already bought it and modded my intake to fit it. The intake ( which is not CIA btw, just a high proformace) combined with the Flowmaster ha givin a nice boost. Where I would usually be boggin out up a hill it just cruses
