Thumbs up VF620 Install

I always loved my M but felt it needed a bit more torque and a few extra ponies wouldn't hurt. I thought about going the standard tune + pulley + exhaust but in the end I felt I'd be spending quite a bit for < 50hp gains. So after seeing a few reviews I decided to call up VF and purchased their VF620 kit.

I had the folks at Precision Auto in the south burbs of Chicago install it. I got to say I'm very impressed with the the kit and the install was top notch (all the routing and modification required was done with detail). Also had them install MS test pipes.

The car is a complete animal now, there is no other way to describe it. FYI the stock 265s even with brand new Michelin PSS don't cut it, though I was kind of expecting that. Anyway, I want to thank Robert and Nik at VF as their customer service has been great and every question I had was answered very promptly, and Nasser and Jim at Precision for great work on the install.

Here are a few pics:
