    I wouldn't delete the EGR, simply unplug it.

    You'll need the EGR to pass emissions next year

    Well today's fmic install took a little more time than anticipated. A little more finesse and a couple more parts and I will be completely confident. Thanks to @10speedtree for the extra set of hands!
    Recirc delete
    Core installed
    Piping clamped up and tial bov good to go
    Fit in an oil change as well but didn't get to any of the other things I had planned for today.

    Use hairspray on the inside of the silicone and it gives a nice tight seal

    Default ricola's 07 speed3

    It's been a long bunch of months but I'm a few days away from the new dyno tune. Built engine, gt3071r turbo, 3.5 htp intake, all the supporting mods. Ditched the kw v3's for some bilstien pss14 coilovers. Dual exhaust, jbr rad cover, ap coil cover and hpfp cover. Ap v3. Headlights done by Josh at GTAretrofits. I love this car ❤️

    Without auxiliary fueling people usually cap out a little shy of 400. That's still some pretty decent powa.

    Car runs amazing. Pulls like a train. Adjustable endlinks, spacers w/ extended studs on the way. Then callipers. So tempted to go wide body but I love these rims.

    Picked up some rpf1s from a Honda guy. Fit well with a 5mm spacer up front. Gonna figure the rears out tomorrow. Nankangs are a little chewed up from poor fitment on his civic si.
