    Did the Deck Plate Mod about 10 minutes ago. Turned out great! Used a 4" Black plate and Sensor Safe glue. Haven't drived it yet, won't until tomorrow, but will update on if it gives me some upgraded performance.

    Bad pictures on my Blackberry.

    Thanks. Blackberry doesn't do well in the dark, but it turned out pretty clean with the black plate.

    Took it on the road today..Noticeable from the takeoff. Going up an incline, I had cruise control on and it didnt have to shift..Just went right up there with some extra power.
    Got a little anxious and rev'd it up to 3,000 and it sounds great!
    Overall impressed with a $15 mod.

    At first when I got it and was going about 30 mph, I was like "What the heck? Did I accidently put the plate in??" But I put some gas down and now love the sound. Very easy install.

    A little update on the Deckplate. I have had about 3-4 fill ups since I have done the mod and have noticed an increase of about 1-2 mpg each time. Now I'm getting a solid 18-19 in town. Not bad!

    check out the build thread
    im doing mine in about an hour, only thing i'm worried about is i'm only going to have time to let the sensor safe silicon sit for about 2 hours before I have to get somewhere. If for some reason the check engine light goes on, is there something I can do to fix this? will there be any damage done?
