Thank you. That was why I went with the color for the calipers and strut bar .. something to compliment the persimmon interior.

Honestly, I do not "feel" much of a difference with the JWT's. I did have a base dyno and re-dyno'd with the JWT's and I gained 8HP but lost approximately 4 flbs of Torque. However, the sound is much nicer. A deeper throaty sound when you really stomp on the pedal.

Ok. I updated with some pics of the HKS caps. I really am waiting until I get my rims back and get it cleaned before I get all of the pics updated.

Thanks, can I ask where you got it and do they make it in black?

Unfortunately, I do not think they come in black. You could probably get the oil cap powdercoated, as the orange center piece sticker is shipped as a separate piece. The reasoning is so that you can put the oil cap on, then place the center piece sticker in perfect even alignment or however you like it to look / angle.

Installed the GTM Oil cooler that I bought off of Tardcore, but one of the lines burst.

I think the GTM kit is flawed in design. Either they didn't account for the amount of sway bar movement on that end-link or they really suck at making connections.

Wheels look good though!
