the first time they did the recall they just replaced the air bags with newer units. they didn't actually have a fix for the issue. It was an age issue where they got too old and were causing issues. so they replaced them with new units the first time. Now they have an actual updated design and are replacing them all again.

Looking at the last time you posted here, and your response to this actual very question, fuck no, you ain't doing shit here. I guess you are worth every penny they pay you to do this.

Nice. I recently installed Texas Speed & Performance longtubes, catless connection pipes, a PMAS cold air and lund tune on mine. Absolutely love it.

I don't see any spam. I'd say hes doing his job perfectly fine.

Maybe banning you would be a good next step to show hes doing his job.

Maybe. You should report this post, that might get attention.

I havenít done headers or cat delete. Iíd have to redo my exhaust setup. Iím already getting pulled over in my neighborhood because Iíve pissed everyone off. Just 2.5Ē Borla Atak rear section and a res delete H Pipe.

Have you seen Steedaís bullshit power claims on their intake and tune? Theyíre claiming 500HP on their full package car that is really just that Intake and Tune to make power, on the 15-17 GT.

Intake, tune, and exhaust. I could see the possibility for a 65 HP increase. Depends how it's tuned from factory and how much potential is there.

It's also noted that it's an estimate pending CARB testing.
