The Perrin inlet tube for '17 models is not available for another month so I made my own sound tube delete.

A 1.5" flexible cap from Home Depot (part # PQC101), notched appropriately on the bottom so it slides completely onto the stock intake, $2.97.

On the firewall side, for the time being I reused the stock plastic connector with Gorilla tape on the engine side, works like a charm.

Also, got a Perrin license plate kit installed.

Got a GrimmSpeed master cylinder brace installed. Super easy install, take your time to make sure the master cylinder is not moving, took me two tries to preload the brace with my helper operating the brake pedal.

Will crack 1,000 miles tomorrow and look into a few more mods.

Redirects some of the intake noise into the cabin.

Stock size, 215/45/17. At some point I want to run 17x9 +35 with 245 or 255 tires.

Totally understand doing the 3 year thing. I said screw it and did some NA modes early on, I'm so glad I did. The car now drives the way it should have from the factory. Of course if your running 205Hp and 4.3 gears, it's a bit better than mine was from the factory. If your staying stockish, also pick up a K&N airfilter....
