    Hey guys just bought a 2010 with about 115,000 miles on it. Everything is super clean and I'm loving the black suede. Previous owner added these mods; tinted windows 20%, blacked out emblems and accents (with vinyl so i have to pull all this off and re do it.) axle back exhaust, upgraded thermostat, noisemaker delete, 3 bar MAP, iTSX tuner with 91oct performance tune from unknown. The car has kinda gone into a limp mode twice in about 1500 miles. When cruising at 40mph you just totally lose throttle response. After pulling over and shutting the car off it takes a gokd 6-8 seconds of cranking then just fires. Drive away and your fine, wrench light came up once but went away after restart. I belive the problem is the TB to be more precise the TPS so I have a new TB on order right now to swap it out Thursday and see if we fixes the problem.
    My planned mods; ordered up 3 tunes from 5 star, 91oct economy, 91oct performance, and 94oct performance. Ill throw the 3 bar map back in when I get those. Next I'll probably go ahead and get a set of hot pipes to replace all the plastic intakes I can, maybe add an upgraded BOV at this point. From there I'm going to replace the headers and wrap them, then a magnaflow cutback. At this point I expect to start to lose the engine or tranny, when that happens ill go ahead and just rebuild both, then were gonna get to the real fun. Ill swap the turbos for a set of Gearheads and get them blankets I was talking to another member about a front mount intercooler, then you know well need the upgraded fuel pump and possibly injecors. While I have it apart I plan to swap the PTU for a cooled one. Finally we will either throw an air ride suspension or some bilstein B6s.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
