Vararam, Magnaflow Axleback, and HIDs installed! *PICS*

I installed these three items and it went super fast!
Vararam I got from Maryland Speed and it was shipped and delivered in like 3 days....THANKS a ton to them!
Magnaflow bolted right up and sounds great. Next will be ARH and a tune to go with it.
The HIDs are from JettStream. They are 35w 5000k's. Install was great and I did the entire thing WITHOUT taking off the front tires or lifting the car. It was really just moving a few things out of the way and it all went right in. I cleanly installed it and mounted everything out of the way. I highly recommend this kit to anyone wanting HIDs.
Here are some pics from today, but I'll update this thread later with nighttime pics.
The NOS bottle pic was just a joke, my friend had an energy drink and set it there and we found it funny.

looks good. Looking at the vararam intake from the side makes me wonder if the hood closes normally?

It barely touches the hood liner....doesn't seem to bother it at all.

The Magnaflows have a really nice deep tone and doesnt drone very much at all. When AFM kicks in you hear it drone just a little buts its by no means bad or annoying IMO. I had Magnaflows on my GTO and loved them as well. I'm tuning this soon and disabling the AFM so with that off it will have 0 drone.

LOL @ the NOS bottle, I sent my friend a pic when the NOS energy shots came out and he goes I can't really tell from the pic but won't that not even last one 1/4 mile pass?

Car looks great btw, I like the plate...I got grilled by a Charger today with "Hemi Charger" stickers on the door, he kinda looked at me and snickered but wouldn't do anything.

Nice man! Your install day looked about the same as mine, minus my intake being a Rotofab, and I already had the Magnaflow Axlebacks on a few weeks ago. I love my 5000k HID's.
