    Yeah... Replaced the rears with Moog 'universal' TMU 31.75mm bushings and brackets- $16 for the pair from Advance Auto Parts. My bushings were okay, but the drivers bracket was bent when I received my JBR, reformed it, but had a slight clunk from the rear left- it's now gone.

    Polished the headlamps and they look great. Also did the girlfriends Accord.

    I think I'm going to replace my front end links- I can't pull or tug on them and feel movement, but the sound is just like a link.

    I'm waiting to replace the downpipe along with the turbo. However, I think I'll probably go with the Corksport for 'ease of install'. People complain of boost creep, but per Corksport, there were design changes to correct it.

    What downpipe did you go with?

    I'm thinking of going with the CNT downpipe.

    I was looking into the corksport and I like the ease like you said. I also was looking at the bnr s3 and s4.

    I think I'm just going to do fuel pump internals, downpipe, upgraded TMIC and maybe the upgraded turbo and be done with power mods to the car. I went stupid with the MSP, think I'll just add some power and leave it "relatively" stock.
