that's what I needed to know. I PMed that guy a while ago and he never responded. I think I might go ahead and get that filter so it gets here before next week.

hey modena, you going to the autocross on the 9th?

to all: my girlfriend is probably going to be there so make sure that you all talk about your 8's a lot so i look less crazy by comparison (she thinks I'm obsessed and I always tell her that at least I'm not as crazy as some of the people online; ie: the show and shine people)

I have my old airbox at home and I can measure it later if you want a for-sure measurement.

That would be great! Thanks! The apexi says it has a 80 mm flange (which I think is the peice of rubber that would connect it to the MAF area) and I converted it from that commie metric system to good old stubborn american system and it comes out to be 3.1 inches so that should fit right?

Sorry about the pseudo-political comments I know I'm about as funny as Murphy Brown but I can't resist

I would say the 8th is really the only day we can do the intakes since they most likely won't be in this weekend. This weekend I need to finish a couple of open projects I have on the car (ipod hardwiring and cleaning of the interior).

Waterlogged how are you hardwiring your iPod? I am looking ot do that soon and the part I was looking at is about $120. It allows you to control the IPod from the steering wheel, charges it, and gives you a 1/8" in or video out connection: http://www.therpmstore.com/product_i...roducts_id=142

If you have something better let me know.

I bought a leather Kuda mounting platform and I love it. Looks classy and keeps the look that I was going for and is sturdy. http://www.kudausa.com/kuda_mount_an...04-24-230.html

I got the old exhaust out and the new one in all the way till the 2 bolts b/w the midpipe and cat in about an hour and a half or 2 hours, which I was happy with doing it alone and never having done it before. Those 2 bolts took me HOURS because they didn't line up right. It was rx7store exhaust, so I'm not sure if it was a fitment issue or what... Eventually I had to get a small spring compressor to compress down those springs so I could reach the thread with the nuts. But its on now and it sounds and looks great!

Haha... yep. That's what I was referring to. The more miles you have on your car the more of a P.I.T.A. those two bolts are. I doubt it was a fitment issue from the exhaust manufacturer. That's just a strange connection. Glad you got it without busting a bolt.

The AudioLink is great if you don't already have the Sirius module installed. I have it so I went with the Tape/Aux-in adapter. I don't get the luxury of the controls on the steering wheel, but at least it's not RF. Then, in keeping with my "stocker" look I ran the cable under the center console and into the cup holder area. This weekend I need to trim the cable and attach that to a terminal inside the cupholder for easy removal and "jacking in".

We are all meeting Sunday July 9th 7:00 - 7:30am at Gateway. Waterlogged will hopefully post directions and times and info again. (if you read through the post you can get the info as well). We had a blast the last time at the autocross.

Not sure I will be running yet, but the autocross sounds like a good possibility. Still want to get a few more miles on the car.
