The CEFX version is a little bit thicker than original making it a little stronger, and was made so you could achieve "0" droop easier. I think the OEM is just as good though.

I got to track test my V8'11 this weekend and had very good results. With medium traction, the box setup is very stable and balanced using a P909. The car responds to very small changes. I tried both fixed top deck and flex top deck options and there is a noticeable difference but not drastic. No mechanical issues, no broken parts. The setup posted I was using the Flex radio tray option.

Lol i know thats why i wanted it lol. Im hoping either you or tory might upgrade if there is a v10 2012 and i could pick up a v10 11 at a decent deal. Or maybe if any one else on here thinks around Dec/Jan they will be upgrading if there is one coming out and wants to sell lmk.
