Yeah....took me a while to "warm" up to the color, but I believe that the orange will work well with the space gray body. I'm considering brake calipers painted the same color (RAL 2011).

Garage List
Got a set of Motorsport 4.10s installed. Wasn’t even on my radar but my shop had a spare set for over half off so it was no brainer. 1st gear is still very much useable but overtaking on the highway is so much fun. Also complements the Turner pulleys pretty well.

Won’t know what it all means for lap times till tracks open up but for sheer hooning during the summer it’s a worthwhile mod.

Glowing review! A few folks have recommended this strongly versus a CSL intake (if committing to spend the funds anyway), I think it will be next on my list as well.

I want a 3.91 or 4.1 so bad! I already have the CSL box so that would be the icing on the cake

Epic! A good friend of mine has the obsessed Kranzle K1122TST kit. I have been washing my own cars for 12+ years now with a Karcher washer first and now an industrial kit bought on super sale at Home Depot.

Perhaps it is time for an upgrade...

Been away awhile, so delayed posting. Won the exhaust lottery and re-scored a a pair of KKS TI rear cans. I owned these at one time, sold them, sold my Z—very bad decisions—bought a new Z, and got them back!!!

I didn't weigh them before installing, but I can easily lift and hold with a pinky. Well under 5 lbs. With a Braille battery that's a chunk of weight savings, and, they are easy on the eyes

After logging more weekend miles, I actually think first gear is more enjoyable. First gear was never utilized much to begin with but having that bump in torque results in quicker/smoother shifts to 2nd. Being higher in the rev range means I don’t have to let off the clutch as slowly to avoid the dreaded 2nd gear grind. Not sure if that makes sense...

Only downside to 4.10s is shitty highway mileage. You’re at slightly above 3500 when cruising 80mph in 6th. So if you log a lot of highway miles maybe 3.91 is better choice.

Random side benefit is where my exhaust was borderline drone, it’s totally ‘gone’ now since I rarely find myself driving in that 2700-3000 range. Makes me want to get an X-pipe now lol.

Oh I love this! Just looked at a car today that had the SOS buttons and my immediate thought was "I wonder how hard it would be to replace this?"

I keep my work badge in my current oddment tray, it's a perfect fit!

Was this a relatively easy to do? Considering an oddment swap to get rid of the SOS buttons and calm the mod itch I've had this week...
