Still fighting a low boost issues, but at this point, I don't care. It's still a beast as is, and a billet unison ring and kc stage 2 rebuild is in the plans.
Just ordered the harley grille from 1A Auto, and these headlights:



After that, need to get the speakers replaced, and then start saving for a lift and wheels/tires.
I'll post pics soon, before/after of the grille and headlights.

Well, the grille didn't fit. No way it was going to fit, the tabs on the bottom were to long/deep, the bottomed out before the clip could go all the way in. I am going to call 1AAuto today.

Here's some pics of the headlight change. Don't mind the bumper... somebody didn't put it into park and it rolled into the garage. It just pushed it in all the ways, I need to unbolt it and readjust.

@Master_Chase Did you need a pitman arm or track bar/bracket for your v codes + hangers?

It's been a while but I'm pretty sure that when the V code springs were done they didn't change the track bar or pitman arm but when I added the 3" hangers I needed a track bar. If I could remember who made my track bar I would tell you so you can avoid it because it's not holding up well and makes annoying popping noises every now and then if you need one look for a HD like PMFs one or a billet aluminum one like CTPerformance sells.

The EGR does to your engine what smoking does to your lungs.

Remember you can always improve on a design until the EPA gets involved.

Upgrades!
3 Harley grilles later, I gave up on it.
Got 22410 procomp front springs, and bilsteins all around. B codes in back with some air.
New wheels and tires, 20x10s on 36s (35.7 on the wheel).
Removed step sides, gonna get different ones.
No limit intake waiting to be installed.
Dual steering stabilizers up front, and new ball joints all around.

Pics of before and after step side removal. Also did a ton of paint correction post step side removal.

KC stage 2 DIY is in the works.
