Compared to the factory intercooler it's HUGE!
That's next on my list. At least Wagner Tuning provides data and is compatible with rhe stock intake. SXth only has numbers for a tuned car.

Got the Yellow Speed Racing coilover kit in today and dropped the ride about 1.5 inches. I'm not even sure what else to do than wait for my intake to come in and put that in.

SXTH BOV,
MAC Solenoid,
SXTH Hotpipe upgrade
Yellow Speed Racing Coilovers/Suspension (Before setting fully)
Had to keep adjusting, set car down, lift, readjust until it was all good, but now that I have drove 1000 miles to get back home the springs have settled a bit and I have to adjust ride height and get another alignment lol

Here is how she sits. She needs a bath but ill do that later this week. I just got my Velossa Tech Big Mouth Ram intake so I will be putting that in soon. aFe pushed the date of my CAI to arrive later next month so that will be in when I get it.
I'm sorry about the multiple posts, but max allowed files to attach is 10.

Hey All!

Happy Holidays! Pulling the trigger on a 2021 GT hopefully this weekend. Been reading this thread\researching and came up with one question. Since the SXTH Element catch can doesn't allow you to use a lot of the intakes out there, has anyone found or recommend another catch can so you can use the afe intake? Perhaps the ADD W1 can?

Thanks!

Lew

What is your consensus on the strut bar? Worth it?
I think it helps. I’d say the front end responds a bit better now. And it’s only $100, so it’s not too expensive. I have the torsion bar upgrade for the rear, but I haven’t had a chance to get it installed yet. That should help tighten up the rear some too.

I’ve got the LXS also. So far I’ve gotten:
AEM short Ram intake
Strut bar
Rear torsion bar
Axle back exhaust

There’s a good bit more, but I just haven’t gotten to em yet. All the links and all everyone has posted is super helpful.

Wanted to ask and see if anyone was familiar with Rev9 brand suspension. I found a set of coilovers for the LXS by them and they’re basically half the price of the BC’s but still offer damping and ride height adjustment the same as others. But I don’t wanna just get something that may actually be junk. If anyone is familiar with the brand id love to hear what your thoughts/experiences are/have been. Thanks.

They don't provide a quality ride and aren't durable. If you just wanna go lower and don't care that the ride is gonna be a lil shitty, and that the shocks probably won't last very long, then you're good to go.
