Took the car home on leave. 1200 miles each way. Cold A/C and a bumpin stereo, I was happy!

Met up with my friend (the one I traded the Type R to)

I snapped a few pictures when doing the "Big Three" upgrade. I will post pictures of that soon. Im looking to upgrade the battery, can you guys please suggest a good drop-in upgrade? Im looking at the XS Power D4700 right now. Thoughts?

Thanks for checking out my thread so far!

@dsw422 I dont remember if we welded the all thread or bolted it to a support behind there, its been quite a while (since I set the gains) since I've had the board off. Ill get you some pics this weekend.

Sweet!

And jump on the XS battery! Awesome guys out there at XS, badass customer service and their batteries are no joke.

The XS Power website recommended a D4700. That seems a bit much, but I honestly don't know. Thoughts?

I emailed Singer to see about getting some more power in the near future. With a refreshed stock alternator and the big three upgrade the car is great, but Im looking into a second Kicker DX1000.1 to see how much these RE's can really take!

Just drop whatever the factory equivalent is in. I LOVE my D4800/XP2000 combo. Pretty beefy and heavy, but they do engineer them for a 10 year life...

My white 740 is for sale. If there is enough cash leftover after i pay my divorce lawyer, I'm going to grab a battery.
