    Is your car burning any oil ?
    It's really common with our engine.

    considered that, since it's such a steal of a price. Plus he's on a different island rather than continental US so shipping would be nothing.

    @pcb
    not that I know of, I haven't had any problems with that.

    But saw this when I got off work today... no note left either.
    Buffed right out though, just a small scratch left. I took more time popping the fender back in lol
    Peep the orange peel on the lip > still mad about that. Never going to maaco again.

    But... guess what arrived in the mail today >
    How much was the total in the end? I've been thinking about doing this myself.

    Hot damn, those Coilovers are going to be sweet! Negating the excessive dipping and bobbing makes for a more efficient corner-carver.

    Getcha some high performance tires too!

    @Riot_Polizei I got some toyos on right now, but they sit pretty tall at 205 55.. gonna get some new wheels with tires that'll get me a bigger drop haha.

    Coilovers are in, also installed the cf window switches. Thanks @NaturalFlavored !
    Just a pic of the engine bay atm and the switches.
    Picking up the headers tonight, leather interior should arrive this week then I'll get a bunch of pics going!

    Hey man if your gunna do your header I would start soaking your EGR pipe in some penetrating oil. I just installed a 4-1 I got from NaturalFlavored, I ended up cutting mine off and putting a breather filter on. I'm loving your engine bay btw, super clean build man

    yeah those 205/55's aren't going to give you that much of a drop lol. these proteges sit high even when lowered. kind of works out when you're lazy though. i like my 215/40/17's.

    If you're on 16" wheels, you could probably bring the profile down to 45 or 50 for some additional lowering. That's for the next set of tires, though :^)

    Everything's looking good!

    Aaaand they're in. Sounds a bit raspier than I'd like moving in lower rpms, will see how they are on the freeway.
    Found out they're Manzo headers too.
    Half my leather interior arrived, waiting on the second package which has the headrests/rest of rear seat skins.
    Also had an intermittent starting problem going on, swapped out the ignition switch so we'll see.
    It starts up most of the time, but at some random times it clicks and that's it; have to keep turning it until it cranks up.

    Also got a squeaking noise coming from front driver wheel, usually when moving after parked. Squeals for first few seconds then it's gone. Not the belt btw!
    Will have to look at it sometime. Got some new wheels coming in next week 17x7 +38
    Likely throwing on 215/45's on them.

    hey, there are these tabs on your front fenders that hold in clips for the fender liner. they're toward the front of the car. you should press those in with your hands to make more space. when i ran 215/45/17 on my 17x7 +40's, my tire caught that tab and ripped it downward. i bent it back after that but definitely mess up my fender a bit and i'm positive it would make you or anyone else unhappy. the 215/45/17 kept rubbing and that's the reason i switched to 215/40/17. it was time to get new tires anyway so ultimately it worked out.

    pic of 215/45 and before my tire caught said tab. was also running -1.5 camber at the time.



    pic of 215/40. hard to see in the picture but it's the best picture i got of it. sometimes it bugs me but i'm over it

    thanks. I've been considering 215 40 but i'm worried about curbing the wheels. Might just get em to avoid rubbing. Wanting to drop a bit lower too..
