10k? What the hell are they made of? I bet you could ask someone in Aus to take a Proceed GT over to Turbo Yoda at AM Auto Services, then it wouldn't cost you anywhere as much for him to use his skills to create you a fully custom set of headers for the engine.

6th Element intake and vacuum block. As well as the Magnaflow Y pipe. Y pipe will be going on next week. More parts will be coming in the next couple weeks.

added the intake to my car yesterday. was gonna wait to do everything at once but i got the itch to at least put something on my car. i had a diy intake already on my car. but after adding the 6th intake it sounds a whole lot better. even the blow off went from a pshhh to psttt, so it don't sound quite as much like air brakes. i also thought the suction would be quieter with a bigger filter but hell no. didn't know much of a difference in power cause i already had a pod filter but you can definitely tell that this is flowing a lot more air than my diy setup and this intake will benefit from a tune or when adaptives set

finally got my Y pipe put in. night and day compared to my first exhaust job i had done. also installed my 6th vacc block. easy and straight forward to install. only hard part was getting the vacc line from under the car that i had installed by the turbo for my boost gauge. motor was hot from driving. big mistake to work under car while it was hot.... i reset the ecu after my exhaust jobe today to seee how it would react to my muffler work and new intake. it seemed down on power at first but after a few miles holy sh*t this thing woke up. i'm still waiting on something from tork to add also IMG_0498.JPG

no reason to dwell. koups are just as bad ass in their own right. personally, i still think the 1st gen koups are waay doper than these cars. but there ain't nothing like a booty on these 5's. best looking ass out there. but if you're a family man and a hatchback and 4 door is more ideal for your family than yeah you are missing out on the 5. at the time i was just looking for a hatchback for work. i almost got the juke nismo but glad i waited for this car on the lot.
