I drove 500 highway miles on a trip with my SB Stage 2 before it was fully broken in. I just did the break in after and it was good to go. I would just take it easy and stay away from heavy throttle applications as tempting as it may be.
Uhh is anyone else concerned about what appears to be damage to the top of the piston in photos #2-3?
Also in terms of the sound I have heard that a chirping noise may be the harmonic balancer hitting the timing chain cover. This thread covers the issue and the solution. Not sure if that is...
Welp, I could resist no longer. I’ve wanted an Aerofabb spoiler extension for some time, but could never justify the price for what it was. I try to support small business whenever I can and this was the perfect opportunity. I can’t wait to receive it! Thanks!
I don’t believe that’s repairable any way other than PDR. It was my understanding that the fender/blade is structural as in part of the frame of the vehicle and as a result of that it is not removable.
Not experience but I found this thread. Posts 4, 5,16, 51, 62, and 64 are all related to your query. John@IE also has a few posts in there. Here is another review, and he continues on to stage two a little further down. Hope this helps.

The weather finally cleared up enough to get a much needed wash in. I fall more in love with this paint every time I wash it... Big props to Chemical Guys!

Yeah I paid $180, but I also had them do another larger dent (like yours) on the front left fender too. So I think you’re in the right ballpark price wise. It took my guy less than an 45mins-1hr to do it and he did a FANTASTIC job. 10/10 recommend. Some of the other body shops I had quote it...
I had a smaller ding in the same place but on the passenger side. Becuase it is structural they did have to drill a hole like your guy is telling you. I was hesitant at first, but he banged it out in 15 mins, plugged the hole, and I haven’t thought about it since.
