    Nice! You'll like them fore sure. Steeda makes some amazing stuff.
    Rear is easy peasy. Front takes a bit of work. Video is out for that as well

    Rear sway bar came in and so did the CF hood. Hoods is at the paint shop right now and should get it back soon. Just leaving the hood vents carbon and the rest will be painted.

    Awesome sauce! The install was pretty easy. Removing the intake manifold took under 10 minutes. Whole job should only take about 1.5 hours.

    It's a pretty clean install for the catch can. Their instructions are extremely vague and they could've came up with a better way of mounting it. Looks like you'll most likely have to pull the can out to empty it as well. But I'm really happy with the kit as a whole. Very well made. I also have the oil cap breather so should stay really clean in the motor and relieve a lot of pressure.

    Hit me up if you have any questions!

    What brand of hood did you get? Cost? Are you putting hood pins in?

    Just watched your video for the front. Does not look like a good time. Also, what were those orange clamps that I saw on the bar you were installing?

    You have the same setup that I'm going to be running. Still waiting for Mountune to ship the breather plate to me since they've been on back order since December. I'll be looking forward to your installation video.

    Thanks for all that you do.

    Anderson Composites. It's basically the sister company to seibon. I think it's approx $1200 after the freight shipping. I won't be using hood pins.

    Sway bar collars. I believe your sway bars have them built in. It's to center the bar and keep it from "walking" side to side.
