Case in point on your AFE intakes, your price sucks and some dealers will void warranty regardless of what SEMA or anybody else who refer to the Mag. Act says. They will still have to battle it out if their MAF fails. Also to those people who have signed up have to wait for the 7 others and still not save any money you're actually being irresponsible as an organizer.

Finally your whole gig about 405mm rotors... those won't even fit under some 22" rims.. that's why Brembo AND stoptech do not make them.. it's stupid.. search the archives and you'll see the trouble even TommyX went through to get 380's to fit.

The best advice I can give to you youngin, slow it down, don't jump the gun, do your research.

It is ALWAYS better to be quiet than to open your mouth and remove all doubt if you do not fully understand the subject matter that you speak of.

off soapbox.
SANguru you're absolutley right. Please PM me the site where you got the better price on the intakes, because I don't have a price guide on them and I could only base off the lowest price with what other members had PMed me. I was thinking about becoming an AFE dealer myself and doing it for you guys, but with exams right now and with lots of folks wanting the intake asap I couldn't. As for their MAF, if it fails yeah dealer doesn't have to replace it under their own dime. I don't think I ever said they wouldn't. I though I made the example of stuff like suspension failing they wouldn't be able to void it.

The rotors were just a wish, I don't think I'll go through with them for the exact reason you mentioned. They need 20" rims minimum and clearence which I doubt many folks have, but that's a moot point. Zeck has great pricing on brakes and I don't think I'll do a group buy on them ever anymore.

Once again, thanks man, I'm slowing down a lot. I'll wait until late January to do another GB.

Just 20 min ago I completed the install of ACS pedals. Looks great.
I would not go for the orginal stuff(ofcourse after enough research). 9 out of 10 times both could be be from the same supplier/manufacturer.

I just got my ACS sets of 3 from Ebay. They are really nice quality. They were $70 shipped. Definitely a recommended mods.
