    Why did you swap the intake tubes from ZZP to Mishimoto? Was it that you just wanted it to be red or that it's more bulbous or is there a performance difference between them?

    Re: STM's 2014 ATS 2.0T 6MT

    ^I swapped it for a few reasons, one of which was because yes I admit I wanted a red one to go with my engine bay lol. Additionally I had heard the flow and quality were better on the Mishi so when I found a good deal on one brand new on Ebay I decided to get it. I do feel like the quality and fitment is better at the turbo end and the stem for the PCV plug. But then again I had bought the ZZP tube used, so who knows how it was treated. The thing I did like about the ZZP is it had a bung for the clip on the MAF sensor harness.

    If it helps here is a comparison pic I took. There's a few differences but the main one is the shape.

    How did you do the window trim? Vinyl or plastidip?

    ^I used blackout tape. Kind of like vinyl but thinner and a little more tacky.

    Finally finished and installed the grills. What a PITA, but worth it I think.

    Swapped the trunk crest and cleaned/polished the muffler tips. Debating whether to debadge the ATS and 2.0T emblems, kinda on the fence with that.
