Alright all....im not sure about your neons, but my car likes to give me problems during winter. Been a constant fix fix fix situation. I can see summers around the corner though, its getting there...just tiring of the wait as we all know. Im anxious to get back, for now im just going to show pics of some parts, nothing special yet. Will be buying a new bumper, adding some sideskirts, might plasti dip the whole car a matted black/blue...see how it goes when summer hits, when the money starts coming in.
So now im done with the mods in the engine, im going to put the battery back up front, out of the trunk and build around. For now the power line in my trunk is close to speaker wire, so i can hear the rev in my speakers...ziiiiiiiiinggggg. Still sounds good.
Audio: Pioneer Set up (Copied and pasted)
Pioneer DEH-P7400HD Mobile CD Receiver with HD Radio and MIXTRAX
Pioneer GM-6500F 4-Channel Bridgeable Amplifier (760watt)
Pioneer TS-A6994R A-Series 6"x9" 5-Way 600 Watts (quick shot)
Pioneer TS-A1684R A-Series 6 1/2" 4-Way 350 Watts
(hidden in the door anyway, why take a pic?)
Also, very excited about this upgrade....the exhaust.
Exhaust System: Stock Header, Magnaflow Direct Cat Downpipe, 2.5" Catback Piping. Gotta say i bought the ebay header, didnt fit...was bent. Other than that, this car breathes so much better and I could feel how restricted it was compared to now. Necessary in my opinion.
(waiting for warmer weather to take vid....remember this is just a tease post)
Next up - Suspension
Set up will be:
SRT Struts with Eibach Sportlines
And yes, that is the Prothane Bushings Kit. Going to need some sway bars in the future.
Rage A5 16"x7 40mm offset
Tires ordering friday will be: 205/50R16 (unless some one knows a better size before I order) Hankook Ventus V2 Concept H437
Once I receive the tires and mounts/bellow tube so i can make it more of a direct swap, it will be on. Excited for it.
Almost forgot, I installed Maddog STS 72% with MPx Shift knob (Pics soon). Can't stop banging those gears. Goes good with the Booger bushings and JM Cradle Bushings.
Other things I've done:
-New gas cap (i just now started getting engine code when its past due inspection...idk whats next. p0440 only)
-Rear Wheel bearing/hub assembly. (Ever since i got my car back from local garage...its been problems ever since. hoping when i replace the struts i can better see the problem)
-Oil Catch Can installed
-Ground Wires upgraded to 8g Wire
-Blue LED Instrument Cluster (pics when i had no engine code..for once)
Planned for summer:
-Struts/Springs & Rims on
-DYI LED 3rd Brake Light
-Body parts / Paint
Gotta say I love what the car has become. Its very snappy when I need to to be. Once I get the suspension on, I will take 0-100 vids.
Oh yeah, for the tails pic...dont have one with brake on, but lights up crazy...sometimes i think its a cop behind be because they are so bright.
