Photo I took a few days ago finishing up the Stillen kit I pieced together and made an air to air setup. Have it all back together and e-tuning currently.

Ran some new amp wire, and started with the new box.





Took it for a ride to the grocery store and felt all that extra power without the 100lbs of extra audio equipment...


Side note, hooked up the old amp and sub in my dope new to me yaris and it hits harder then John Henry.

Just ordered a new amp, and subwoofer so planning on changing that up this year I guess, also got some new rear speakers. It already sounds pretty good in their but I just get bored I guess.



Still gotta get my summer wheels on one of these days, for those who are not up to speed on my current set up...


Damn Dboy - I bet they can see that **** from space!

seems like a lot of time wasted. my ride has been offline for a few weeks (month+ now)...and I was feeling really bad about it. But motivated to get it together again. GL

I love those that you have on the front? What brand/style/size are they?

Default Purely to vent

I'm finally putting in urethane dif bushings and Z1 subframe collars. Excited to feel the result. But damned if this hasnt been a bi*** of a job. I'm going on day 3. I've cut out the old, pressed in the new, inserted the collars, repainted the dif. And finally discovered that this full sized rear (not the z1 puck style) is fatter on the front end such that dif doesnt want to line up. I'll press the bushing further tonight. God damnit...

I just did the poly diff bushings on mine as well and agree it was a pain. I haven't installed the diff back in the car yet, since I was doing my clutch kit as well, but it'll go back in tomorrow or Saturday. Hopefully I don't get the same issue with the rear bushing!

I got my trans with Z1 clutch and flywheel kit back in last night. I didn't take a pic of the new parts, but the old flywheel and pressure plate were beat...

How was the install on the subframe collars? Is it truly as painless as they make it seem?

Z1 Clutch and mid weight flywheel kit installed with new Redline fluid. I had a leaking rear main seal so that was replaced too. This replaced the factory setup at ~126 miles in my 2004.
