Sorry to sound like a broken record but was anything said about the lack of DRL's? Just curious. I like the wash pic- the car looks happy. :D

It would normally fail, along with the bulge I have in one of my tires.......... but it's my dads buddy so he didn't care about the little things (as long as I take care of them).

The ride is SHIT. I miss my BC's so much. I feel like I'm going to bottom out everywhere I go. I forgot how terrible springs are :/ soft and bouncy.

The car is just too high for me, especially with the rim/tire set up. We'll see what I end up doing. SO MUCH I wanna do right now, but so little money.

Changed out my rear speakers from the factory Kicker ones to my Alpine Type S ones. SO MUCH BETTER.

Will hopefully be getting a wiring kit and doing my sub/amp tomorow. Also, I NEED to replace the stock 3.5's at the front. They sound so shitty

If that "line" was resting up against that metal coolant line, it was cause that. What is that line anyways, electrical or vacuum?

I will use my real camera when the car deserves it :rofl:

Swapped over my coilovers tonight <3 <3 <3 FUCK struts / springs. What a shitty ride, car was all over the road boucing up and down. Also, got a real fender roller, from Chris (Canada) and rolled fenders/quarters.

Ignore my fender(s), they're both pretty rough

Well, not really... the backend was raised, so this was the result.

Anyone see the one in the back left corner? :twisted:

:lol: I know the feeling... I kept laughing out loud every time the BOV made that sound the first few times I drove my car after the install. I still like to have the window down to hear it.

how small of a wheel can you put on before rubbing calipers?

blue plate in, love it! Kind of want a real BOV now.. but this will be fine. The camera focused on the wastegate, not the blue plate.. didn't realize until I uploaded it.

Here's my really shitty looking engine bay :shock: it might be pretty one day, but I'm leaving it for now.

Kevin... I see in your engine pic you got the AGP dogbone solid motor mounts. How do you find the car shifting an is there noticeable noise / shaking like a typical solid MM? My passanger lower by the oil pan is gone an I need a new mount looking into these.....nice looking car. :D

I don't really notice anything..... but the R/T had solid mounts too so I'm just used to it. Plus the coilovers are stiff as fuck. Overall it's rough ride, but I love it and barely notice it.

New rims!!

coils need to settle from being raised, but I'll probably drop it about 0.5" more in the front. Rear height is good for me. I need about 3-5mm spacer in the front and 10-15mm in the rear.

XXR 531 (I know, I know, they're the hot rim of 2013 and everyone has them)
17x8
+35
205/45

also replaced my broken skirt while it was jacked up

two studs on the driver rear are stripped, probably picking up stockers tomorrow to temporarily replace them until I get extended ones. Also, one stud ont he passenger front :(

17x8 was available same day, otherwise I'd have to wait a month to get 17x9.

I'm kind of thinking 17x9 +25 for the rear though...............
