Yeah the entire car was the Camo green plastidip. For about 5 days lol. I'm not a huge fan of the red, so right when I got it I wanted a quick and easy color change. But I think eventually I will paint it a flat metallic green.

UPDATE: Just ordered a TurboXS CBE and a Cobb short throw shifter with new front and rear bushings. Should come in by Wed. So I'll get pics up ASAP.

I've read that the STI tranny mount is a nice addon if your doing the short throw shifter. any thoughts on that? anyone have one?

I don't have one, but I have looked into it. It'll stiffen up the transmission you will feel more from the car which is never a bad thing. I've seen photos of the stock one next to an aftermarket mount and the difference is amazing.
What are you looking at for a short throw? You may want to look into shifter bushings at the same time.

I'm trying to learn to actually use my AP so I went and tryed to log a few pulls this morning. Can anyone tell me how I'm looking? I feel like my boost should be a bit higher. But I'm really not sure. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3H...it?usp=sharing

that was a 2nd gear pull.

I'm running the ACN 91oct Stage 2 map and I have the TurboXS catless downpipe installed.

when you are doing a log, it is best to do it in 3rd gear at about 2,500rpm to redline which is about 6,500.
this will give you a great log

Can't remember who sent me this, but here is an awesome tutorial that helped me out for a starter!
