    Thanks on the offer! I'll definately give you buz if I get the kit. I'll need to wait to order the bushing kit, because I just ordered new catback and i feel the wife's eyes on me everytime I look at or mention car parts, plus I need some new tires. I think I read that they rent the removal tools and from what I see, it doesn't look too hard to get done.

    Yeah, I know the feeling with the wife eyes. If looks could kill. I recently traded my DD Infiniti M35 in for a 03 BMW M3 though and now she's all for it. Sh eloves that car more than I do. And she has her own 07 335i coupe. Strange. I'll help install though, just needs to be on the weekend with some advance notice. During the week I don't have time for anything but work, kids, and sleep. I need to plan the install of my Stage V. I've got all the parts but the weather is so sh!tty, until this week.

    You should be able to knock out the stage 5 install in 3-4 hours easy. Its not all that difficult either (except for one annoying part).

    Best advice I can give is take pictures 360 degrees around the motor before the install and during tricky parts. That way you can see how things were routed (or where they were plugged in). Also, a second hand is very useful.

    Thanks. Will do. Gotta do the injectors, BAP, and plugs while I'm at it. Also wanna pull and PC the Valve Covers, but I dunno.... Heard driver's side is a bitch to get off.

    I didn't touch my valve covers, so you'll have to ask someone else about how much of a pain they are... :beer:

    I think it was you who was thinking about an Amazon tune, right? I'm getting set up with Rick right now for a tune, I'll definitely let you know how it goes.

    wondering myself about a mail order tune. i wish john was still around, that guy was the best to deal with. please keep us posted on your tune from amazon. i know a bunch of the L guys were trying to get rick out here for a dyno tune day awhile back. seems if there is enough interest maybe we can get rick out here this time.

    PM'd about the IRS catbacks. I see a redfire 03-04 heading to N Fort a couple of times, anyone?
    I rolled up on a mini car meet at the Christian Center parking lot in Lacey last week Friday. From what I was told they meet every week. I met a viper and a blue stage III roush with KB, built motor and lots of goodies. He had mufflers in place of cats, for a total of 4 mufflers.

    I had mine sitting in the garage and thought no one would buy it, decided to put it on CL, I had about 7 serious buyers in a short time.

    Defiiately let me know. Beside what the one guy with the Lightning said, I've heard nothing but rave review regarding Amazon...

    Friday night, huh? Time? Might try to come out....4 day and all. I've seen the Redfire once or twice I believe. Chrome Cobra inserts in the bumper? Dunno who it is. Someone on main post drive a red PP GT500. Saw him on I-5 S last night.
