What does that have to do with it? I haven't tried it myself, but from what I've read on the forums, my NA tops out at about 120mph.

Anyway, we're getting off topic.

Eonon Radio

I just finished installing a Eonon Nav/Radio in my Redline. I bypassed the Monsoon system and went directly to the speakers.

Nice install job... is it just the light angle, or is your dash grey? Mine's as black and the radio trim.

Nice install. It looks as good as any factory install.

You're right doesn't mean anything, it was tongue in cheek comment.

Drive on!

Back on topic..

I cleared some room in the garage for the addition today now that I am back home from business travel for a few weeks. I finally have the car back from the dealer and all the small issues are fixed.

It was also a 70 Degree day in south carolina, I just simply enjoyed the car by getting breakfast downtown this morning with the top down.

It just looks gray because of the flash. The piece surrounding the radio has a similar finish as the dash. It sets it off rather well. Thanks.

I looked good driving it with the top down in the 75 degree Florida sunshine.

I bought my 2008 Sky Redline about 4 months ago and am loving it. It is my daily driver. Even with my foot getting heavier and heavier as I get used to the car, I still get around 22 mpg. I would have to say it is the most awesome car I have ever owned.

I am now researching and learning about bolt on upgrades and the potential that this awesome power plant has.

First will be new exhaust. Think I will go with the SOLO Mach Shorty with the SOLO High Flow CAT. I have talked to my wife and have gotten her permission (She is the boss) to buy this upgrade for Christmas.

I am also liking the turbo upgrades I have been reading about on this forum.

Still lots and lots to learn.... but I am eating it up.
