CongRats man on the new s/c, I love this car and is def an m3 killer all day. I'm surprised people still try this argument, BMW owners will never change. How's the fun level with the auto tranny? I have always loved this car, but the manual version.

Soon, hopefully. Forgeline's aren't cheap you know!

Katech heat exchanger is in. Pretty easy install. Found disconnecting the power steering cooler lines made for an easy drop & swap. So need to run to Advance Auto to pick up some power steering fluid. I'll button everything up once I make sure there are no leaks.

LOL! I'm not a big GM fan... But the V fills my need for a sedan with power.

There are a lot of rumors going around. A lot leaning towards the third gen V not be as great as the second. Seems like a lot are trying to compare it to the new Hellcat. Which is fair but let's not forget that Cadillac did it first in 2009 putting a blown V8 in a family luxury sedan. Hell it made BMW go back to their TT V8 from their V10 in their M5. (M3 is not a comparable vehicle to the V. Go home fan boy.) But from what I've been seeing and reading the Hellcat is having problems. First a lot of false advertisement. Second rumors are surfacing it can't meet emissions. And let's not forget it's biggest problem... Mopar. No sports car will ever be "perfect" and last forever on "top." That's what's great with advancement. I can tell you this... I love driving this car. I find myself very confident in it. More confident than my TT-350Z I had. And if you don't remember how well built that was go re-read my build thread. Is there room for improvement with the V. Of course! I absolutely hate the GPS and I find the trans not knowing what I want or doing what it thinks I want at times. But when I put that peddle to the floor it's; roar, whine, and hand da f^ck on we're about to hit 120, 140, 160 like it's nothing in a 4k-lbs sedan with a baby seat in the back. It's a great all-around car that can keep 30-40 plus old dads living their teenage years.

Just checking in. Not much to report as the V's mods are collecting dust in my garage. My love for firearms has taken over my car's mod money. Maybe 2015 will bring more opportunity to mod the V. I'm leaning towards getting the headers and cam and doing it all at once. And to be honest I'm still enjoying it in it's stock form.

And just to show y'all what I've been up to...
