    Do you do the install yourself, or what did it cost to have it done?
    Do I need to replace any other stock sensors, etc............
    Your help is appreciated.

    I plan to do the intercooler too, I'm on the Gearhead wait list.

    Yea the install wasnt too easy. Pretty tight working areas and the front turbo you gotta have it on the threads and like pulled to the end of the threads to put the nuts on as the one is tight to get on when the pipe is fully against turbo. Ill post pictures if i can find them.
    Did it on the floor as my lift wasnt working yet, had to remove passenger side wheel for better access to rear turbo. Still better to have a buddy with you. Was thinking it would be better to remove an engine mount to drop it down alittle further but i didnt try it so i dont know if it will help

    Some nuts came out with the stud as you can see on the one picture with the turbo with no pipe on it. Took a few hours on the floor. Easy process its just rusted bolts and hard to find good angles to get the nuts off without breaking anything. From what i can remember, did it about 20 months ago.

    All sensors fit fine like its stock, just the downstream o2’s dont like not having the cats there so either a tune will turn the code off but you will never reach obd readiness. Or they make the adapter thing angled best for our platforms situation and the code shouldnt come on with those installed and i guess obd readiness for catalyst will finish

    @SM105.....

    Reference the post before yours, it's stuff like that, that really pains me for the forum staff to install an "UNLIKE" button.

    Couldn't agree more with your sentiment and timely warnings to any potential new customers of their's, as well as a reminder to any current customers remaining (can't imagine given all that's occurred with them within the last couple of years, anyone would want to stay) but a warning rather to......

    STEER CLEAR!!!!

    LMS is trying to get back into the good graces of our community after they screwed up a bunch of tunes with shifting issues and massive fuel pressure problems on the 2013+ cars. Their claimed only fix was buying their Firestorm HPFP upgrade. Numerous other tuners called them out (Matt from GH, and Brad from AJPTurbo namely) on the BS. Both have proven safe tunes that make more power on the STOCK HPFP then LMS. It is all documented.

    Come on now, don’t forget about the blame that needs to be placed on all those car owners. They were to lazy to turn traction control off every time they went for a drive, didn’t overfill their transmissions, and chose to drive when it was way to cold out.
