    So neither one of you guys have the full race FMIC. Ha!

    I remember waaayyy back in the day that the that TMIC's that flowed the most were CPe and ETS. I haven't seen a lot of ETS top mounts, not sure if they discontinued them.

    I seem to remember now one of the Nator locals had both and swore up and down by the ETS. Dumped his CPe to someone for cheap.

    Dropped off the exhaust manifold to get ceramic coated black (Cerakote Glacier Black) and got some cleaning done in the engine bay. Wish I had a before pic, it was pretty nasty for 40k miles. Did the best I could do without running water.

    Also decided I will be self-tuning this setup. It will be my first time tuning... Hell of a build to learn on LOL.

    All of the other colors look so much nicer in the engine bay. Silver just looks dull and dirty. This is a nice opportunity to redo any of the shittier parts of your harness while you wait for everything to come back. I'm glad I did, but AZ roasted the hell out of my harness.

    Put a c clamp or something on that slave cylinder to hold it closed (unless you plan on replacing it anyways).

    Good eye haha :) It is a brand new slave I installed, so it isn't pressurized.

    Got some more miscellaneous shit done today to make my future life easier. Prepared the passenger side firewall pass-thru with some grommets so I can easily pass wires through to the cabin.

    Also picked up the FR Manifold, the ceramic coat came out pretty good!

    Also ended up picking up a Corksport FMIC and Crash Bar without their piping. It is pretty much the same size as the Treadstone TR11, so it should flow for ~560hp.

    Got my cocksport intercooler on.

    Really happy with the crash bar design. Nice to keep the tow hook. Plus the mounting holes are slotted so I can still fit an oil cooler between the AC condensor and the intercooler.

    Picked up a new Bayson R grille and dropped it off along with the emblem and fog light covers to get riced out with some urethane paint and 2k clear.

    Corksport intake manifold was going to be released in January, it was delayed to April and now its been delayed again to July... Needless to say I am going with a Damond ST intake manifold with port injection spacer. Gonna sell the 6th port and put my own PI kit together since it will end up costing less. Wish I did all this right the first time lol, but oh well.

    Really unhappy with the JBR under-route kit. There are chunks of silicone flaking off on the inside of each of the 90degree bends. Given the change in intercooler and intake manifold I might just make my own with parts from siliconeintakes.com

    It's gonna be under-route and invisible anyway...
