      That should work..there is also gloss vinyl available if you want to cut out one step and be easily changeable:

      If your gas cap light comes on even if you think you tightened the cap, try pulling on the cap as you tighten it. Worked for me.

      Also, anyone got any info on either of these:

      http://www.eurosportdesign.com/p-998...2-headers.aspx

      http://www.kmdtuning.com/index.php?_...&productId=986

      I found posts on them, but nothing really stating gains, etc... Maybe I wasn't looking deep enough, if someone finds it easily my bad...

      Vinyl is a good way to go. you can get the gloss and protect, kill two birds with one stone

      Anyone have any info on the headers posted above? I realized I can't use to SuperSprint ones, since they won't mate with the Forge downpipe...

      All I know is the Milltek ones seem to go down to 2.5" and should fit stock compatible components. But doesn't Forge offer headers for their Scorpion exhaust system?

      My bad, I just checked their threads and it was only DP's they were offering, not manifolds.

      I'd get the cams before I got the headers, you'll make more power with the cams than getting headers.

      Ron, Owner of Denon Performance is the Schrick US distributor.

      You can purchase them through his ebay account, make an offer for $1350 when ready and he'll be cool with that. You'll want the 268/264's over the 272's.

      Oh yeah, that's definitely the plan. Just researching, since I already know where the cams are coming from, LOL

      The headers and downpipes are an either or situation. The benefits of headers over the downpipes would probably equate to maybe 1-2hp difference for A LOT of money.
      I know the headers are pretty and I would love them myself but the downpipes make much more sense.

      Cams are your next step for sure

      Yeah, that's the basic concesus I seem to be getting from everyone... Cams are definitely the next step, they're being ordered next week to be exact

      I'm digging the badgeless grille... Keep us posted on the cams because I am interested in a NA build. Hope the mods are worth the price

      So, little update on the car... Been awhile since I've updated my thread here with new stuff going on...

      Already new and on:
      - Forge full exhaust system w/high flow cats and non-res
      - Forge intake (getting rewrapped in white CF soon instead of the black)
      - Finally got my dorbitz Airlift V1 molded sunglasses holder installed (great mod)
      - H&R rear sway was installed when exhaust was done
      - ProClips hardwired cellphone charger/holder that mounts/clips on the passenger side of the shifter... I must say, after getting it and seeing it in person, great thing to invest in...
      - Here's the ones I got: (I know it says GLI, but it's a perfect fit)
      http://www.proclipusa.com/brodit-veh...690-17574.aspx
      http://www.proclipusa.com/brodit-dev...327-18864.aspx


      - Finally ordered cams Can't wait to put those bad boys on
      - H&R front sway should be going on soon w/dorbitz brackets
      - Got the MDI interface that I'll be installing this weekend
      - Finally decided I'm going to do the badgeless grill in gloss black, ordering the 3M vinyl for it this weekend... Gonna go back to my white mirror caps as well...

      I'm sure there will be more that I'll think of eventually I'll be working on getting pics up of the exhaust and all that stuff here soon...

      My cams shipped today.
      Do you plan on changing out springs & retainers with new ones?
      I should ask Ryan E what the total change out included.
