Tested out both tunes, they are very nice. 1st gear is literally just to try to get rolling lol, 2nd has a decent spin as well. 0-120mph is like a hot knife through butter, scary really lol.

Let me know how the Steeda separator works for you. I'm between that and the JLT oil separator.

I gotta say so far the Steeda design has it located in a terrible spot. Not sure how other kits are, but I would definitely consider something that locates the catch can at least in front of the intake tube. I forsee emptying it on a regular basis becoming a pain with it behind the intake tube and under the cowl. Will keep posted on how the first emptying goes.

It was plastidip. They have since been stripped off. When I took my csr in to get the winter set on the machine rubbed the edges off pretty good. Just need to powder coat them next time, but I also found out 2 of the wheels are bent so I got that going for me.

The two JLT ones that I've seen mount in front and back. Front one is up near hood latch and back one sits just above where the intake tube bends down to the turbo. I do agree with you on Steeda's location, it does seem pretty lame. Size seems pretty small too.

Roush 3" is backordered. Not going to start install until that is here. Just want to do it all at once.

Very frustrated right now. I got the rear mount installed and started on the downpipe. Then I hit what I feared would be an issue and my catback couplerbolts are rusted solid. Going to try some PB Blaster and seewhere that gets me but I may have to make a cut to get the stock DP out. Not a big deal since my Roush catback is also going in, but it doesn't arrive until the 20th. Was just wanting to get the bulk of the work done now and just throw the pipe on after it arrives but i didnt want my car to be down that long. Anyone have other suggestions? These bolts almost look like they were welded in place.

Got the mounts in! Vibration is about what I expected, but during a pull it feels solid. Very happy with it. Went ahead and reassembled the DPbracket and will just get the exhaust done at a later date when I have everything on hand.

The big mouth finally arrived. Deleted the shroud and smactive grille shutters as well during the install. Just wish I had an intercooler to put in while the bumper was off. Not too bad to do but getting to the pinch bracket holding the bumper cover by the wheel well was a pain. Definitely recommend doing everything you need to while the bumper is off. I noticed my cover was split in a few spots during removal, previous owner had definately had it off at some point. Yes I totally destroyed the shutters lol, it sucked taking off. Intercooler definately needs to come off to take it out, but i didn't feel like doing that so i just yanked it till it came out. Couple shutters were broken anyway.
