The car is all together and runs awesome, some minor issues which I hope to resolve once I take it to Evans Tuning for a dyno tune.
In summary the end result is worth the install challenges.

If you are installing the 3" exhaust you will have to cut out the center bar on the second from the front shield/pan and one of the crossbars not longer fits. At some point I'll drag out the welder and fab up some substitutes.

Im curious, Did you replace the 2" hot side intercooler piping?  Reason I ask is in another thread you mentioned your car holds 12psi to redline which mine wont.  I only have a 2.5" exhaust but I'm thinking the 2" intercooler  pipe is choking it.

Hello,

Yes I did with 3" piping. I thing the 3" exhaust helps significantly as well. FM recommended it strongly when I bought the FM2.

I very interested in the map changes that the dyno tune will indicate.

Regards,
Pete
