Thank you everyone.
Decided to take a well earned extra day off from work, but it being my birthday was a bonus. Did some wrenching on the EX to get ready for the turbo upgrade coming soon! Got rid of the stock intercooler pipes, for some new powder coated IC's. Looks orange due to the direct sunlight, but it's actually red to go with the small amount of red trim on the EX. But also put on some new IC boots to help hold the 'improved' boost that will be added, plus a pic of the Air intake heater delete, which is now being used as the new boost sensor port. And then the Filter upgrade that is 3x bigger than what the stock had! A before shot, then the upgrades! I know I know - most people do fun stuff on their birthday - but anyone that's known me long enough - this is what I love to do. Tinker and upgrade!
Also - Thanks to KennyV for these pipes!
