Installation: (17,886 miles) The installation was straight forward with the instructions provided by Steve Schwing at the Modshack. It took about 30 minutes. My VTDA is powder coated in black wrinkle and is a close match to the plastic engine cover parts.
Test Drive and First Impressions: This mod is a good return on investment. My first 45 minute test drive revealed a seemingly pronounced ease at breathing. You can more easily hear the DV working as well as the turbo spinning. The increased noise level is not obnoxious.
