It was 63 degrees when I left the house for work this morning and for the first time in months my car felt AMAZING! Had no problems hitting peak boost around 22-23 psi, unlike the 20-21 I have been getting in the heat. I forgot how great and responsive it felt before the summer heat hit. Who else is excited about cool weather and some spirited driving?

That's the sweet spot!!! Warm enough for the tires to stay grippy and cool enough for a happy turbo

Still hitting 80's here in Texas. But evenings are dropping into the 60's and 50's.

Now that's some nice cold dense air. Last I was in Boston was March of 2014 and I remember there being a good bit of snow on the ground. I need to make a trip back there to visit my cousin.

If your ever up there shoot me a PM or what not. March is usually hit or miss, either it's in the 30s almost the whole month or some days will creep to the 50s.

It also didn't hit the 20s last night but was in the 30s with some frost

I'm noticing the cooler temperatures as well. Looking for someone to install my FMIC. Got a quote for$175 from a member of our enthusiasts group. Not sure if that's a good price or no. I might do it myself, just need some ramps. The video from levels seems pretty straight forward.

That price isn't terrible, but it's easy enough to DIY. Get a set of Rhino ramps from Amazon, and you'll be good to go.

Fur lined jackets, gay looking boots, leggings that look like they need to be worn only at home, black thick framed glasses....Great this winter everyone is going to be a Hipster Eskimo.

I picked up a Deadpool knit cover. I don't like how it slides around. Feels like the shift knob is loose lol.

Got some Rhino ramps from Wal-Mart and did it today. It wasn't "hard" but it was surely a PITA.

Will do. Though it is highly likely that I would fly so I would not have the ST with me.

Good deal! :RockOn::banana: DIY is always the best way to go whenever possible. You gain a whole new appreciation for the work done when you have to get down and dirty to get it done.
