      Just ordered a Modshack intake. Been trying for days to decide on which intake I wanted. Chose the Modshack for its looks and multiple color options. Also that fact that I have read nothing but great things about Steve and his customer service. I chose the DBM w/black logo to match my R32

      Welcome and excellent choice. I have a white Modshack to match my CW R. Just a suggestion but you may want to look into the noise pipe delete mod while you are doing the intake install. Helps clean up the engine bay.

      Was bored and wanted to try out Plasti Dip so I hit up my .:R plate frame. Like the black frame with the black DARE plate but dont think I like this combo. Need a new reg sticker with that one falling off.

      That black plate frame looks pretty bad*** dude.

      Also, when you get your new Reg sticker... heat those old ones up with a blow dryer and pull them off.

      I had a DARE plate on my Honda since 2001... Finally got smart in 2010 and pulled all the old ones off.
