Update- Everything got buttoned back up and a laundry list of poor work was corrected. Car finally burnt off the last of the oil in the cat but was running like shit with weird surging which felt like unmetered air ******* up it's day, did a smoke test and low and behold it was the BBK throttle body that wasn't sealing properly. Brett was able to slap the old throttle body back together and get it running a lot better (thank god since it's on intergalactic back order right now). Fingers crossed we get it worked out and on the road today.

I knew you would appreciate this. Here is one of the replacements for my SHO. My GF picked up this 2014 CLS 63 S. Pretty sweet car. Already has down pipes and a tune.

Brunch yes!

The wife and I tried one but she agreed to orient toward smaller sporting coupes but damn for a cruiser this thing riiips! Check out the diffuser and dtm type spoilers they have for these, they totally beef up the rear end and make it look sick AF!

Great purchase though I can't emphasize enough the value you get with an AMG car. ❤️

Yeah. This is her car. I don't think she will want to change anything. She really enjoys the sleeper look of the SHO. However, you kinda don't get that with this car. The good thing is most people don't know exactly how fast they are.

Now my future E63S will be a different story. LOL. I can't let her AMG be faster and better looking than mine!
Bro honestly this is why I had to go full tilt into the Sedan, I can't have her car outshine mine

Got it cleaned up and on the road today to do some driving. Wow she ******* riips. Had to go order some new tires because these continental extreme contacts ain't cutting it. The turbo noises and exhaust sound are soo satisfying. Already planning the Transmission build for this winter so we can turn it way way up next summer. Also looking at transitioning to a air to water intercooler when I do the Fueling.


Still gotta go in and clean up the engine bay-

Started driving around and messing with the obd2 reader I got to run Torque pro with gauges on a seperate tablet. Tried to get a tablet local but living in the boonies is lame. I have the OBD link mx plus since I was looking at reviews and it has the lowest latency of all the bluetooth adapters I was looking at. I plan on running a little 7 inch tablet above the syc 3 screen on an arm for now, later I'll have something 3d printed to tuck it right into the dash since I removed the center speaker.
