    Ill be posting some pictures of the new parts being developed on my car from APR Performance, AFE Power, and Trackspec motorsports. I will hopefully have time to take the car to the track later on this year after I move to Phoenix and get some good feedback for everyone

    Heres the prototype intake from AFE Power sitting in the car, dont have any dyno numbers for it but it looks clean, and the 2015-17 supposedly made 15+whp with no tune. Ill have more feedback on it once i get the car back from them and drive it some more[​IMG]

    Heres some shots of the car from APR Performance showcasing the full aero package including the new canards for the 18s. Personally I think they look much better than the 15-17 ones, and based on the design they look much more functional as well

    Nice. Go ahead and use the Full Image option when posting photos.

    When you say full image option are you reffering to the "upload a file" option. I am able to do that for some photos however most of my photos are 2+mb and are to large to upload. The ones uploaded are in the kb range and honestly im not sure why they arent in the mb range like all the others

    You can still use that option on the smaller images. That's what I did when I edited your posts. There's an issue with the size and I'm working to resolve that.

    Alright. I think i found a janky workaround on my end. Screen shotting and then uploading to instagram my phone savws the photos as under 1mb, and then I can just upload those ones and delete from instagram haha. Bit roundabout but it works for now

    Im im the process of getting out of the military as well as moving to AZ, so it will be a few months before I have time to properly track the car. For now its just spirited back road and canyon driving on my free weekends. But I am hoping to track the car around December/January in Phoenix once I get settled

    I cant for the life of me understand why I go through so many tires hahahaha. On a swmi related post im running brand new 275/35/19 federal 595 re-rr up front with some new 305/35r19 super sports out back. Massive difference in grip now. Car went from horrible understeer to some suprise oversteer that required dialing in the aero to fix. I'll give a better review of the federals as i wear them in. Theyre 150 each with free shipping on amazon, so if they turn out good they may be a viabke budget track tire. I will also be getting dyno results from AFE Power hopefully on Monday afternoon and sharing that

    I was at AFE Power last week while traveling with one of my sales engineers in Corona, CA. Met with a mechanical designer by the name George. We are looking to supply some inserts for carbon fiber for them. I saw them on her itinerary but had no idea what they did until we got there. All about Flow engineering. Nice place and good people.
