    Hey y'all quick DIY for those who are following

    I decided I couldn't wait for roush, seibon, or aeroflow and maxton didn't exactly fit the bill for me personally so I decided to give it a go and make my own. Below are a few pictures I took throughout the process feel free to ask me any questions, I may start to make them for people out east if theres any sort of interest. This is only v1 an v2 is being worked on at the moment.

    Word of caution (don't watch in full screen it will burn your eyes)

    So some quick updates here,

    Did a quick turn down exhaust (right now its a straight dump) Will be welding stock tips with actuator on this week to get access to sport modes and hopefully less drone.

    And tomorrow I have a photo shoot so stay tuned for some wild photography XD
