Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

Cuz I don't like the texture of the parts. is that wrinkle plastic and what I found out is that they're not paintable.

All it would take is a little prep work and sanding no?

Not a litttle....a lot. The cost of prep would probably be the same.or.more than buying the ready to paint parts...

I feel like I've been spoiled having friends and family in the autobody biz. My price estimations are super skewed up lol

The oem non painted parts have a texture from what I remember as well. That would have to be sanded off.

Few updates: got a Tazer and the sprint booster on the way! Can't wait to program the SRT gauges, performance meters and nav in motion.

Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

Ok guys so the sprint booster came today and I just finished installing and driving around for an hour testing out the different modes on the highway and city roads.

First off let me say that while the price is expensive for a sprint booster I don't think I could ever go back to driving without it. Changing back to stock mode was miserable!

Install took 10 min all you have to do is unplug the connector at the top of your gas pedal and put the sprint booster in between the oem connector and the gas pedal. All plug and play. After testing the modes thoroughly I disconnected the mode selector switch and left it in the green "sport" setting. Race mode was sweet too but it was a little too much for daily driver. The green is a perfect balance and how the car should have come from the factory!

Honestly love the difference driving around with this. Makes over taking cars on the highway so much better and I have way more confidence the car will respond quickly enough as the gear downshift occurs faster!

Also off the line the car feels so much better. Like I said the price is hard to swallow but the difference is worth it. I wouldn't go back to stock now for anything.

My Tazer programmer should be here this week so I can enable SRT performance pages in the EVIC display as well as the SRT speedo and gauges. After that there's really nothing left to do to this thing, except a corsa exhaust and ripp supercharger that is lol...

Still looks awsome mate. Was thinking of of un subscribing due to the take over of your thread lol.
What does a Tazer programmer do?
