Driving around a bit. Tough in rush hour traffic but have flogged her just a little bit. Sounds good, feels good. A bit louder than before, havenít been to highway speeds yet to check for drone. Driveability is about the same.

Will be back in a month for a fluid check.

Off to Lexus tomorrow to get the satellite radio fixed before the warranty expires next month.

Dude you must post videos when you get a chance, we have the same color and year car and that pic is making me jonesy to get a kit. I love how you can jusssst barely see the intercooler and oil cooler; it definitely makes the car look like it hiding something..

I'd paint it gloss black to blend in with the grill. At least that is what I am doing on mine when it gets installed.

Hows the car feel? Was it worth the wait and the money spent? *Impatiently waiting*

Car pulls good. Have an adjustment issue with the SC pulley so they will have to look if they put the wrong bolts in during the crank pulley install. Some misfiles - not noticeable but could be related to running too rich with water/meth. Some fine tuning really. Will let you guys know.

Sadly no video this weekend, ice everywhere but the GS is currently sitting at Lexus while they troubleshoot an electrical issue - things that should work with the ignition to OFF or ACC are only working when ON. The RX350s are nice.

Did these electrical gremlins happen prior to getting the SC or after?

It spun the tires in second gear but then I took it to Lexu$ to look at the shop induced electrical issue. The loaner RX350 is pretty comfy.

It's hilarious how much room is still left in the engine compartment even after the SC is installed. I know their are some really tight spaces in there, but it seems so roomy compared to moset modern cars. You can really tell Lexus designed this chassis for a V8.

whenever i pop my hood I'm surprise how small the V6 looks in the bay.

PS. looking great, cant wait for videos! I have the same car, same color.

I don't know who owns this car but it sounds fast. I can assure you the car never exceeded 25ish. GS350
