New clutch, RPI exhaust and some Ground Control

Since it was in for a new clutch/flywheel and all the other stuff you should do while your in there (slave, etc.... and thanks to members who helped guide me right on that) I figured new exhaust might as well go on instead of the old one. I finally got my baby back and I'm loving it all over again. It was black on black before but the black tips on the RPI GTS exhaust really finished it out. Plus it sounds amazing









Just need to restrain myself for another 500 miles before letting it loose to appreciate the exhaust. I do feel the adjustable camber/caster plates already though. Amazing to me what a diff those and alignment made in handling.

Looks great! Black/black combo never fails. How are you enjoying that FAMS tune?

Not gonna lie, I just paid the $200 extra for them from RPI. It's an option for the GTS exhaust. Totally worth it IMO, the finish looks great and it's only been a few weeks but looks durable. Close up has the black chrome look.

Thanks, I can use that to convince the wife it's not just me that likes it when I'm in the garage tinkering. I love the FAMS tune. I did Euro SMG flash first then FAMS as first two mods and together they made a giant difference. Someone needs to get some jcolley DNA and start making clone geniuses. I have to break in the new clutch first but after that I'm going to pony up and fill up with 100 octane from the place a few blocks from work that has it at the pump (as if to taunt me), dump in the 100 tune Jay gave me and really see what it will do just city driving.
