    I work in Pigeon Forge so mine will always be there now. I didnt get mine until August. Is your URD S/C the only one u have used? Does it boost performance pretty well and have u had any problems out of it? Also, how do u have ur dual exhaust set up?

    Urd is the best way to boost thats safe and makes great power out of the box. Gadget and the itronixs guys are great to deal with over the ucon. If u order urd charger go with the 800cc injectors not the stAndard ones and the bigger charger. Save u money down the road. Performances gain is like going
    From a bicycle to a cbr1000rr. My exhaust. I cut all four cats off . Ran 2.5" pipe from the stock manifolds down to a x pipe then the x pipe dumps in to two glasspacks then twin 2.5" pipe ran back over the Rear end and I took the spare tire out and run two n1 3" in 5" out tips out the back like a 350z

    Ok thanks, I plan on getting some headers real soon. In a month or two. Then taking out the y-pipe and remaining cats and replacing it with a custom y-pipe. Also, I haven't called urd yet, but it doesn't look like they have a s/c for 2013 yet. Do you have a short throw shifter and if so can u tell a difference?

    Yea I just bought a set of jba headers and gotta work them in to my system. The urd short throw is the best. Makes shifts so much better. I cut my shifter and done a solid welded with the urd SS. I think mines between 6.5" and 7" long. But u can't go wrong with urd short throw.

    Ok thanks, the short throw will prob be another soon purchase. Do u have the urd twin clutch and flywheel? That's something else I plan on purchasing. I would also eventually like to get the traction bar and big brake system too.

    I considered going. If I'd seen this earlier I may have done it since I'd meet someone there.

    I've seen one or two driving around near where I live, but have never gotten a chance to speak with the owners.
