Hey guys ive been wanting to make this thread for some time and now that we have a Photo/Video section here it is..this thread is a timeline with pictures of how far my car has come from day 1..u are intitled to ur opinion in this thread but keep the drama to a minimum. no threadjacking!!! here we go!

Bought my 2006 Black Mica MazdaSpeed 6 GT in November 2006 #2717

After a quick wash, it was cold outside.









My 1st Mods at 500 miles or so were an AEM CAI, Rear MM, Silverstar High Beam Lights and i poilished up the Valve Cover. apologize for the bas pics, back then i used my cell phone.











In 2007 the first mods were the Custom Exhaust and Painting the Emblems RED, at the time i was going for a red and black theme.







HKS Carbon Ti Mufflers









In the spring/summer of 2007 i put on the CP-E FMIC, changed the transmission, differential, and PTO Fluids i dont have any pics of that though TWM Stage 2 SS, and the Shorty Antenna.






















The Last Mod in 2007 was a gauge pod and 3 AutoMeter Gauges




2008 -- not much went on in this year.. decided to change my theme to all Black, u will see that change in the photos below.

2009 -- Big Year!! Complete Transformation of the cars overall look and performance upgrades in the year were plentiful.

First Up... PG TIP , Nextmod Front Lip, AutoEXE Grille





Bought a Cobb AP, Changed the Floor Mats, Got some new Prosport Gauges from Ken at the OCC Mazda Meet, New Shift Boot, O.Z. Racing Rims.











Here's what the car looked like before the big FMIC kit.





I then decided to change my FMIC setup and went with Altered Customs FMIC kit.. the core is 30 x 8 x 3.5. I decided to dress up the engine bay alittle bit..with this setup my CAI had to be changed to an SRI. I also added some Denso Spark Plugs while i had everything apart.











Recently ive purchased a PG V3 Manifold..Full Corksport TBE, 5w-40 w an Amsoil EAO-15 filter, and i forgot to add in the Evil M emblem..









JBR SSP Installed May 2nd 2010



FI (Flex Innovations) Grounding Kit Installed May 20th 2010





Blow Thru MAF installed




Current Look July 2010

well it depends on the cop right. their mood can affect how they handle a situation. just like any person in another setting.

Nice and well done. Only thing I wanted to ask is about the intercooler hanging a little low below the grill. Did you cut the crash bar? It just look weird to me.

Thanks!!

i actually get that question alot..the crash bar isnt cut at all..which was a descision made by me and my local body tech, its there for a reason, that reason being safety in a front end crash, so its there to stay lol..and to add to that my personal feeling is that removing the bar would make the car unsafe from a unibody standpoint as it is tied into it, so if u auto x it or drive it hard u could twist the unibody with the bar removed or cut.


edit: found the TIP pic and a few others.. enjoy!

I understand. That's why I've been contemplating on whether I should get an FMIC or not. I really don't want to cut the crash bar for that reason so that's why I think I'll just go with an upgraded TMIC and go FMIC when I go big turbo or something.
