Like it... It's an expensive exercise but full led conversion is very advantageous. The load it takes off the alternator is surprisingly noticeable behind the wheel... A fella I know did it to his xr6t, and it really is a performance upgrade lol

I was talking about the whole deal, mate did EVERYTHING including the number plate illumination... Dropped overall voltage by like 2.0 volts or something... Was nuts...

Umm he works at a car electronics place, so stuff all for him but expensive for us normal people. Couple hundred bucks I think.
It was the guy I bought the 3" turbo exhaust from. I can try contact him if your keen?

my next thing im saving up for is an exhaust system 2.5" headers into a 3" 200cell cat with 3" to the tips but im puzzled cause on the one hand people are saying it trips an engine light but others are saying give it a couple weeks and it will go away or it never comes on

Only trips the engine light because there are 2 O2 sensors for the stock exhaust system, and aftermarket only has 1. A tune fixes it. It's the same issue that BF's had :)

My system is going to be Pacemaker 4495's, venom 100cpi Hybrid cat into dual 2.5" Mild XFORCE. I had it on my BA before it made love to a tree, and it sounded great.

Pacemaker headers don't trip the engine light, but yeah some do some dont... FG's are temperamental. If you are going to get a sct flash tuner, you can turn the light off... But if not just be careful with what headers you choose. Mods can be done to stop it from coming on, though not recommended. Look for a set with the twin O2 sensor holes...

I thought it was any catback system that did, as it was the 2nd sensor after that cat that gets tripped? I'll find out in a week or 2 I guess... lol
