I know what you mean. When I my GF's mazda 3, holy hell is it a difference experience. First off its an auto, which may be a bit boring for some but its awesome not having to shift in traffic once in awhile. Also its so smoother/quite/and doesn't rattle!!!! A legit DD and a weekend warrior would be awesome, just not in my budget unless i sell/trade my bike

Looks like you will have another turbo 8th near you soon, he wanted to make sure it would clear his intercooler piping

Honestly, if i were in the turbo market i think id go with the PRL kit that was announced just a bit ago. Comes with a lot for the price. Also most of the people that have EFR's have blown engines, not a lot of people run the kit yet so it may still be coincidence

Yeah i love the looks of the PRL kit and the crash bar it comes with.

what's causing them to blow with the EFR

Not totally sure, also not even sure if the fact they are running EFR's is the cause. Could be a huge coincidence because not that many people run the kit. But from what i know over 50% of the people that have ran it have blown an engine. I am leaning towards it being install errors and stuff, but its still hard to ignore. The PRl kit looks awesome, and come with almost everything needed, unlike most kits available for the same price.

Just going to copy and paste my review I left for him on another forum



Steve's Automotive Refinish:

Let me start by saying I am ridiculously picky about who works on my car. I have done some business with Steve in the past, he painted my old RPF1's Championship White. I live about 45 minutes away from the shop, but I knew the quality and service I was getting into, so I brought my car to Steve to get my front end painted.

Steve and the crew went above and beyond!
The bottom of my lip was scuffed up and had some deep rock chips on my front bumper. I wasn't expecting them to fix it all, but to my suprise it was! And they realigned my hood for me (aftermarket replacement hood) and now it fits like OEM
My car is on E85 and I didn't want to let it sit in the cold weather (aborbs water) without being started/driven. After talking with Steve, he started up the car and let it run for a bit everyday for me!
Steve also picked me up from Enterprise rental car after I dropped it off!

The paint matches 99.9999% dead on. And from what I hear, pearl/flake paint is very hard to match. They preped/painted the whole front end and blended the doors.

You cannot beat their price, quality, and customer service. Thanks again Steve and the crew!
