I pulled the blower off the 12 and still need to install it on the 13 along with the BAP and tune. Some of the other mods I'm looking at:
-Lethal Performance GenII overaxle pipes
-Trufiber A72KR hood
-GT500 rear spoiler
-Custom painted stripe. Thinking about doing one 10 inch wide white stripe down the middle with a blue pearl clear. Then 2-4 coats of clear, then 9 inch wide white metallic stars down the middle of the stripe and another 3 coats of clear. This should make the stars look like they are floating and the stripe will give off a blue glow.

Why the change? (Like I should be asking this question considering I have had 4 2013's in the last 11 months.)

Long story,
This was my wife's ride as I have/had the '12. I had her all setup too. (Steeda shocks/struts/springs, Barton shifter, JLT CF CAI, VMP tune, Cervini hood, MRT hood struts, and RTR wheels) Her and the kids want a pool and I said something has to go. I returned her car to stock and sold the parts, but we were going to go so far upside-down I didn't want to have to cash in any investments. Now I'm returning my '12 to stock, because it's almost paid off, and we will use that money to help pay for the pool. Meanwhile I still have a cool ride. For me the saddest part is loosing my custom stripes. They are so frick'n awesome!

Pool are overrated.

Can't use them when it
Can't use them during

And they make it harder to sell your home, as most people when house looking will avoid a house with a pool 60% of the time.

But understandable with making wifey and kids happy.

Look forward to seeing the conversion.
