just wondering, since both of you had the sharkfin wrapped..did they have to remove the inside headliner, or did the antenna just pop off?

Default where did it go?

If anyone has any info on this please share but maybe @JoeZ can chime in as well...

Where is the PTS-JoeZ exhaust thread! I play the video/sound clip in the morning when I get to work for the whole office to hear the 3IS roar...haha. I can't/don't remember what computer i saved the R&D session photos i had with Joe but when I do I'll repost them. Here is what I remember from the session.
  • Stock setup was a single piece from Cat to muffler but with two more CATS in between the trip
  • JoeZ's eliminated the secondary CATS on the X-Pipe

I hope to have more updates for everyone soon.

Hey CL peeps...

Man it's been a while since I've given an update. Here are some progress notes and pictures for you to enjoy.

The first set of pictures are before and after pics of the J5 coil over system install. I've been privileged to be the first to test these superb coil overs and let me tell you they can perform. I'll have to raise it once the volks get in but for now I am enjoying the "high school" height... I have the dampening on the stiffest setting for now and it rides on rails. I can tell the spring rates are stiff too because on certain drive ways my rear wheels lift and i lose traction...lol. Great job J5!! please check them out once these go into production. A big shout out to Shawn at J5!

My other update and pics are the beginning stages of the R&D sessions at Ark Performance. They are innovators!! check them out @ ArkPerformance
They have amazing exhaust systems like the GRIP and DTS systems and maybe they'll privilege the 3IS with both! more to come. A big shout out to Larry and Michael who I met at the Auto Enthusiast Day by Nitto event.

Please follow them on IG and me of course for all updates on this build...

@r0shiro
@j5usa
@arkperformance

enjoy...
