    Amazing car and great write up! Did you feel a performance gain or a loss with that short ram intake? I was thinking about getting one.

    there was definitely some improvement, but the thing i didnt like is i had to rev to like 2.5-3K to get any torque. I saw skip the short ram and get a full CAI.. short rams are simple to install but a CAI is so much better

    and yeah i actually use my visors and don't want to remove them or cut them for the maplight

    Re: Frantik's Green Monster - Past, Present & Future

    well for an update on my car right now i need to fix my driver's side fender cause the door molding must have caught it and bent it in and now i cant open the driver's side door every once in a while i forget and try to open it too

    other than that i need to do an oil change soon and hopefully oil pan gasket as well.. and I need to change a coolant sensor on the engine cause it leaks a lil and smells nasty :\ so that stuff aside right now i'm pretty happy with the 3gee. Hopefully this summer i'll be able to spend a lil money on it and get some nice upgrades

    anyways here's some pix i made for another thread recently which I though also should go in here
