Finally got around to installing the Mountune short shifter and full induction kit... I was expecting anything from the intake kit, but WOW, was I surprised when I took it out for a drive! My butt dyno said HELL YEAH!!! much improved throttle response and the turbo just comes in earlier and harder than ever. I also noticed a huge improvement in intake air temps. The hose that runs into the fender really helps keep the temps no higher than 10 degrees above ambient. Most of the time it was with 3 degrees which meant for the first time I saw charge air temps lower than ambient! This car just continues to amaze me!

I also installed the hydraulic hood strut from sico developments out of the UK. Great little kit that was easy to install.

I have the the MP215 upgrade which includes the cold air intake and love it. I'm just not sold that spending the extra $$ for the induction hose will add anything noticeable.
If nothing else it looks really nice.

I have an email from randy stating that they saw some interference as a result of the change in vibration frequencies caused by non stock RMM's. He didn't mention Cobb's specifically, I just mentioned that I was planning on getting one. I'm sure there's something to it and considering Mountune is developing parts which uphold the factory warranty they can't supply parts that may have this type of effect. I'm sure whatever effect it might have is totally unnoticeable to the person driving as the computer will deal with it, but any potential for excess knock or pulling of timing to handle it would effect performance and reliability... Two things any manufacturer wants to avoid.
Ken said in a different thread that they have not tested the Cobb RRM specifically.
I just ordered the short shift kit from Mountune and I am really looking forward to getting under the car for the first time and installing it.
Do you need to get under the car to install the quick shift?
