      Literally took 10 minutes to install.
      Honestly, these strut are strong enough to use only one. It does take a little muscle to close the hood now.
      I'm sure they will loosen up with a little usage.
      Awesome!

      Installed injen intake. It was pretty straightforward to install. I think it increased my IATs compared to stock, but then again it was 95 Fahrenheit today, so maybe that has some to do with it. I'll check on the commute tomorrow, before it gets too hot out. It sounds pretty cool, that's for sure, and it looks good in the engine bay.

      Updated the emblems and installed paddle shifters (after 2mths waiting for them). Overall pleased with the look but the minor defects in the badges has my OCD spiraling. Got paddle shifters from ali express and the blackout kit and inlays from Kliimw

      It seems like today, IATs were actually lower than stock, as long as the car was moving, and not sitting in traffic for a long time. When at a halt, they started to climb a little more than stock. But once moving, they quickly drop. I was seeing up to 10 degrees over ambient while moving, 25 over in slow traffic, and about 35 over while stopped in traffic or at lights. I must admit, there is a noticeable increase in power, and I don't think it's in my head. That was unexpected, considering I already had a drop-in k&n filter, snow guard delete, turbo hose, and cts turbo inlet pipe. The Injen intake+CTS turbo inlet pipe seems like a good combination on my car. Plus, bonus points because it sounds awesome.

      I did plasti dip on my trunk and fender badges. Matte black. Took about 5 hours total time. 30 minutes prep, 30 seconds each coat per badge. 15 minutes in between each coat. 7 thin coats per badge. Came out way way better than I could have ever imagined. Wonder if it'll hold up, but we'll see. Total materials cost me about $25, drank a few beers over the 4ish hours to complete it. Love the result. Peeling was so much fun.

      I finally got new spark plugs installed, since they are required for stage 2. I've been tuned since 2500 miles, stage 2 since somewhere in the low 13k miles, and currently at 14,200 or so. The stock plug were are .031 when I removed them. I think they started at .028. I installed brisk ER12S's, gapped at .024
