    All the piping is custom the shop did the work for me. The Intakes barely affect the performance on this build its more cosmetic. I lose maybe 10hp with them getting extra heat. I’ve had them open for almost 2 years no issues. You can definitely just keep the stock box & buy a drop in filter or can build a custom box if you really want to protect them from the heat. Another dude on here used the small bumper insert as the cold air source he opened that up to feed the air in. I may even take this route down the road but as if now with the power I’ll have I think I’ll be more then satisfied tbd!🤩

    Yea I got 18” I swap too for Timing. 22” Is more for the day to day cruising & style. 20” is way easier to get setup for cost & tires couldn’t agree more. I can’t wait for the Upgraded Engine & Turbos to see what this vehicle can do! I’ve only heard amazing things.

    I didn’t Install the mounts but I was told it was easy a few bolts that lines up perfectly. I live in Canada roads aren’t good at all but we got some nice mountains around & I have a blast driving this thing around. I haven’t heard it scrape but I know the rocks chip at the paint for the side bars. I’m not sure how much the other ones would contribute since I did it all at once but I’m very happy with it. The wheels are 22” Asanti’s With Lexani Tires. I’m not sure on the other specs they don’t make them for this vehicle so I had to get them custom drilled to fit etc. All I know is now that they’re on I’m obsessed with the look. If the shop was closer I’d go verify the specs but its wide & beefy vs stock. Its also surprising how much compliments I get. This thing everywhere I bring it pulls in interest I assume for the unique style/sound it gives. Its been a fun project & I’m just excited for it to be done so I can hopefully enjoy it without issues for a few years lol to add to this BBK is insane I brake on a dime it scares the shit out of everyone. Only issue is the noise & need someone who can calibrate the Electronic E Brake. I didn’t pay attention & I got harsh Track Pads which are Loud very very Loud. I wouldn’t recommend on the street when they get hot it sounds like a Train. However I can drop from 200-0 when I stomp the brakes in seconds. I would say minimum 2x Improvement from stock probably more. I found the edge stock brakes (assuming racing) are horrible you will lock up or not be able to stop especially in harsher conditions. The distance they took to slow down was sketchy with my new setup its just mind blowing & amusing watching people smash into the dash. There facial reactions are always priceless lol

    Livernois Tune - Engine Failure

    I really do hope people have better luck then a few of us seem to have experienced. I had a worst case outcome sadly & I just needed to express my experience. This experience I really had hoped would have been smoother then it went. I’d say overall I’m at about 5/10 on how I feel about it now. That may even be generous but I’m out a pretty penny unexpectedly so It tends to leave you feeling that way.

    Livernois Tune - Engine Failure

    Ya I was in Mexico on Vacation when I ordered it then Covid happened & I got delayed it was a annoying time. So I was pretty shocked when they brought that up. I even said I emailed you a week ago to start the process why there was a delay In my eyes is irrelevant some buy it & set it up asap, others take there time.. I was in no rush. 🙇🏻‍♂️

    Livernois Tune - Engine Failure

    The shift points I agree are insanely harsh everyone I bought for a spin was like jesus! I honestly didn’t have time to check or play around much with this Tune sadly. I got it & immediately started having issues then Pop.

    Livernois Tune - Engine Failure

    I most definitely agree that based on my vehicle they should have said we need to tune this on a dyno. This is definitely well said & good for future reference

    Livernois Tune - Engine Failure

    Ya at first I was upset cus they told me I waited too long to tune the vehicle after purchasing it since I was building it. Then they said they would refund me for the tuner so I edited my post. I just wanted them to be fair of course as in your situation. My engine at first did the exact same thing surprisingly but after replacing the spark plugs it seemed to be in working order until Kaboom 😂! 💥 Only plus side is The 2.7 is too weak for what I wanted out of it anyways. Now with the Bigger Motor/Turbos the engine will be able to handle it much > plus its like 80HP > then the 2.7 Stock vs Stock as is which is huge! I’m just waiting for it to be done to pull faster times then the Urus at 1/4th the cost

    Lol My throttle body did pop off 2x after the tune was done a lot of boost pressure

    Livernois Tune - Engine Failure

    Ya I’m happy about the refund, I’m far from stock though I have every possible bolt on you can get + extra. I was told that they could adjust everything regardless, the Build is looking like 3.0 Engine Bigger Upgraded Turbos, FMIC, 5Gallon AEM Water/Meth, Custom Intakes/ThrottlePiping, Cold Inlet Tapped for Meth, BBK Throttle Body, JLT Catch Can, Custom Exhaust 2.5”, 2.5 Catless Downpipes, NGK Plugs, The HPFI Di fuel thingy lol & probably more I Can’t think of its gonna be tuned by ZFG now. With all of that it should be a beast. I think going with Livernois based on my build was my mistake I should have started with a much more customized personalized tuning process with many revisions to tweak it perfectly. I think Livernois is the perfect tune for any Stock Engines who just want a quick boost in power I just would ask for a safe conservative tune lol

    Thanks!! I will make a Build thread soon for sure. It feels amazing Its so smooth/rigid it feels like a Audi gripping the road vs a Suv. It definitely wouldn’t impact the Structural integrity in any negative ways. If anything I would say it makes it stronger. The Suv Stock had a lot of body roll when turning with this setup it feels like there is next to none. There is Front Struts, Reat Strut, Center Cross X Bars, & Then 2 Small Link Bars that Aren’t seen in the photo they were installed after. The suspension is H&K Springs I believe I’d have to verify All In probably 1K in parts but worth every penny. The Brakes & engine mods though can run into the 10K+ Range it adds up fast

    Thanks! I’ve definitely taken my time customizing it. I look forward to taking more pics once its out of the shop again with the new Motor. Then I’ll try & make a list of all the mods! Sometimes its so hard to remember them all especially all the little details

    Livernois Tune - Engine Failure

    Update: They decided they will refund me for the Tuner itself. So I am glad that they’re willing to do something. It definitely shows that they want to make things right. I am shipping back the tuner this week, I hope anyone else who tunes there vehicle with LMS has better luck then me. I know I’m not the Majority on this one because of how many successful tunes they have done. I was that majority as well until I wasn’t. The only upside to this story is the fact that I’m getting the bigger motor with better internals & > Turbo. What I wanted out of this build performance wise just got a lot easier. Looking forward to sharing the updates. Good luck to everyone on there builds & thanks for reading/commenting

    Lowering makes it smoother & better handling. I’m in Ottawa & It was perfect here. Our snow isn’t the worst in Canada however so it depends on how bad your winter is. The overall Imo its worth it! Can always keep the stock springs if you don’t like it revert back but I am betting you will. The big brake kit & chassis stabilizers are expensive but I cannot even express the difference. It feels like a Audi S4 or something I was actually blown away at the differences. Overall besides the Engine Blowing its been an amazing vehicle I prefer it over my 2018 S5. I’m excited to see it with the bigger motor & Turbos though
