So I was able to install the headlights today and what a night and day difference... all I have to say is WOW!!!
Changes the look completely and not to mention that I can finally see driving at night.

^^^ Thank you sir. Took a while to finish but the outcome was worth it.

D2 coilovers installed. The front obviously needs to be raised. And who says you can't tuck 275s

Bought these off a buddy of mine with everything. Will be getting new seals and repainting them. Still deciding which color to go with.

I know it's been a while since my last update. So there's been quite a couple things I have done but still much more needs to get done. Either way on to the updates !

SPL version 2 front UCA, Euro rear foglight, Voodoo 13 rear camber arms, Stillen torque damper, & Setrab 18 row oil cooler.


Vlsd differential with 4.08 final drive, Nismo finned diff cover painted wrinkle black, & filled up with Redline oil.


Z1 Motorsports poly diff bushing kit.


Differential installed back on. Also picked up Voodoo 13 toe arms and installed those with the camber arms.


Radiator flush & replaced with distilled water and water wetter.


New rubber. Nexen N-Fera Sur4g. 275/40/18 square.

Tires mounted and man do they look and perform pretty good.
Front camber set to -3.5 & rear -1.5 but will be changing it to -2.0.




I ended up selling the Admin intake and went with the LMT 4" setup. Painted the intake wrinkle black and heat shield a satin black to give it contrast.




Valve covers painted wrinkle red. As you can tell I love wrinkle paint haha. New valve cover gaskets, GTR injectors, 255 Walbro fuel pump, & pvc delete are all done now. Everything was really straight forward and simple.








AEM A/F gauge, Cruise control switch to switch maps, Z1 Motorsports rear subframe collars, & Vis Racing carbon hatch.

Please please please ditch the jdm tails!! And you arent going to put your whale spoiler over the cf hatch right??

I assume you did distilled water in the radiator because you are tracking?

Nice work and nice update.

Your car has come a long way! Looks good! I had a few questions since you bought parts I'm planning to do soon.

How did you like the torque solutions transmission mount?

also,

Diff Mounts, you notice a big difference?

I love my jdm tails ! Haha. Something you don't see everyday. I will adding the rear spoiler back on. I have a buddy that will be laying down some carbon fiber sheets in a couple weeks.
Yes distilled water was used. And thank you, still have ways to go.

Thank you. 5 years in January
Honestly I'm the worst person to feel any difference when modding a car lol. The one that was really noticeable was the Torque Solution tranny mount. Shifting now feels smoother and more aggressive if that makes sense. There's more of a feel when shifting. Diff mount I'm 100% sure made a huge improvement but I like I said I'm that guy.

I would also recommend the Z1 subframe collars. I haven't gotten around to installing them but I hear great things about them from friends and social media.
