NicD, what sort of performance difference have you seen on the cars with the nx lid that have come through your shop? Id love some real world feedback as I am considering getting one. Thanks!

Did you slam a double mocha frappe after posting this?

Sure hope so. I just ordered one. I do have a CAI, but no upper/lower pulley.

Haven't done a back to back but I wouldn't expect any real performance difference by just slapping this on.

I would just do this to liven up the supercharger sound.

It'll be next weekend. Car was supposed to be out of the shop today, but now it's another week. It's been 4 months already, so I guess another week isn't the end of the world

I know it's Track mode on dash,
but how did you get those other gauges under bar graph to show that way?
is yours a 2018/19 or whats up?
I see EU versions of standard gauges, is this what the boys overseas get?
WTH I WANT!

24hp just for the lid? Seems too good to be true. I wish they had one without the logo.

The supercharger whine is louder from the outside than the inside.
