There's no space to fit the solenoids for the cut outs there. The kinks are there to clear suspension components of the car.

You'll get the most benefit by placing them right after the down pipes.

Do you have a tune? If so.. won't that fuck with it? Opening and closing those valves? Sound would be so loud though.. got any vids?

No tune required to run those. Opening and closing the valves will not have any negative effects on the engine as the valves are both after the main cats and O2 sensors. The only thing is that the exhaust is very loud, as you will basically be running a straight pipe from the down pipes out.

Another thing to point out is that, that is not my car.

When ordered from the factory does it still require the extra fob?
No they program it into the cars key fob. Just have to hit the lock button and then the truck open button and bam she turns on.

Correct. It will also come with a long range fob that covers about a quarter mile.

Without any obstructions. With obstructions it's about 20 feet [rofl]

Every Stinger comes with remote start, lock and management - its in the UVO smartphone app and its free. You can start your car from anywhere and set climate controls.

Car came with tinted windows from the dealer. My first mod was I rebadged the car, then I put a ADD W1 V3 catch can on the PCV side an I just purchased some front weather tech floor mattes. The next thing on the list is HKS M45IL spark plugs, INJEN Intake, Magnaflow Cat Back Exhaust, Ultimate performance FMIC and then a tune. That will be it for under the hood the rest of the mods will be for the chassis and handling.

I don't race my car or drive it hard, I mod it because I want to have something different. I did the same thing to my ZX-7R bikes I had in the early to mid 90s.

Dealership did windows, but wouldn't go as dark as I wanted, so that'll be fixed at a later date. I rebadged the front, put the large "Stinger" script in the center of the hatch, and removed the Kia and GT. I've got some black leather with red stitching floor mats I've been looking at, (bought a set for the wifes Infiniti) as soon as I see them for her car, if the quality is there I'll get a set for me. As for more mods...... What's a better choice? Power mods or carbon fiber hood and hatch (weight reduction) I'm eventually going to do both, but what would you do first? Strictly Business Motorsports hood and hatch or intakes and exhaust?

I would do intake and exhaust first, you will feel a much better response. Also it wakes up the blow off vaulves.
