I keep forgetting to order these. Do you have to request them to ship to you in the states or is the option available at checkout?
I used Paypal and there were no issues with shipping other than the cost; I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly they arrived.

Any sound clips?
No, didn't record the wonderful noises. I listened to the YouTube clips of various exhausts but it's hard to get a real sense of the actual sound IRL. It's a nice deep tone without being obnoxiously loud. Since you're local PM me if you want to grab a coffee or something and give it a listen first hand.

Ordered my first engine mod. Ram Air from Ron @ Whoosh Motorsports. It’s not much, but I’m excited to put it in and get some more turbo noises haha.

Tried laminixing my tails and reflectors. Short and simple they ain’t going on the taillights in any way. Third brake light and reflectors went decent. Actually looks it’s not there in direct sunlight as you can see on the drivers side, but in the shade it looks nioooooce

This is a collection of that last week or so...

First my Mountune lowering springs and quickshift came in the post a few days ago. I'm going to get the springs done professionally cause I don't want them to fail while driving, or be impailed while taking the stock ones off. I also hit 10,000 miles a few days ago too (13 months old from new). Finally, I spent the last 5 hours trying to install the quick shift in place. This was probably one of the hardest installs yet due to the lack of space to work with, plus I had to take out the battery and battery box since I dropped a tool. I attached some photos too.

Installed some LED bulbs instead of the amber ones that come with it, they stay on white and turn amber when the blinkers are used, Hope it’s safe. Also using them as DRL instead of dropping the $800 on the euro pair which I want lol.

How was the install?

If you've ever replaced rotors, that's half the job. Once the rotors are off, you're going to need a 13mm socket with a LONG extension because you need to thread it between the rear springs to get to the bolts. You will also need an 8mm socket to remove the bolt for the anti-lock sensor -- but you do NOT need to remove the sensor, you just need to remove the bolt in order to release the dust cover.

I definitely recommend using a breaker bar for the main bolts. The hardest part is getting a good angle on some of those bolts.

Removing the hub was easy for me but I've seen videos where a mallet was needed. Once the hub is off, remove the dust cover, clean everything off, and the plate slaps right on.

I started the job during half-time of the Michigan-Illinois game and finished well before it was over. All-in-all, very easy if you have experience working on the brakes/rotors. If you have any thoughts about replacing the rotors or your pads, this would be a great time to take care of them as well.

Thanks! Definitely comfortable doing most things on cars and not afraid to take on new projects.

Going to put these on my list of FiST things for next autocross season.

Most of my car budget this year went into the Jeep I bought. Full rebuild of suspension and steering components + various sensors and God knows what else.

My Jeep in its natural habitat.
