  1. Fatherpain’s 2018 Type R

    Hey there Fit2Hatch, Have a track day on 8/22/20 at Streets of Willow, which is a low speed, turn heavy road course. Looks like it will be smoking hot out there in Rosamond, but looks like it's trending down and might cool off to 102F if I’m lucky. Higher if not. Will likely drive...

    HomieGohan, yes, please consider doing a build thread, that would be awesome stuff man. Your car looks great, would love to see it :thumbsup: This thread started with a couple mods and no idea how it would be received. One post led to another and here we are. Documenting build progress has...

    Yeah there is definitely some mechanical aptitude and feel needed + the right tools to make sure everything goes ok and doesn’t break. Is this car your daily?

    Curious, what was the issue that prevented the successful install of the DP, sleepy?
  5. Fatherpain’s 2018 Type R

    Drove from SoCal to Vegas today to surprise my mom on her birthday. Don’t really get to see her as much as I’d like.. or should... but she just hit 71 years old and thankfully is still going strong :) Drive was effortless, in 103F heat and going up hill most of the time. Power was always...
  6. Fatherpain’s 2018 Type R

    Drove the car yesterday and noticed some of the intake rubber hoses were pressed up against the J’s Racing hood vent mesh. Can see where the hose was rubbing in red. Fortunately an easy fix. Loosened these (3) hose clamps and rotated the hoses and Eventuri MAF tube down and out of the way...
  7. Fatherpain’s 2018 Type R

    Heh np. Just passing along stuff I’m learning as each task is completed. Hopefully these adventures will save headaches for others if attempting similar problems. As far as cars are concerned...nothing is worse than messing something up and disabling your car, heh. I know from first hand...

    Rampage bolts may not fit. I recently installed an RV6 FP and Dream Automotive DP here and some of the Rampage bolting was too short :(
  9. My severe anxiety is making me dislike driving my car

    Very sorry to read you are experiencing this Zeffy... My wife suffered from post partum depression after the birth of our youngest son for a couple years and that was scary and a major bummer.. Our oldest son experienced anxiety and panic attacks for several years.. but thankfully appears to...
  10. Best sounding intake?

    Eventuri upped their game with the V2MAF upgrade and turbo tube. Intake sound has increased significantly over the Eventuri 1.0

    The PWR radiator instructions say it’s imperative to test for the presence of electrolysis that could lead to premature failure. This is a good check for any brand of radiator. Here is the test instructions from PWR. Set up a multimeter to read current (A). 0.01 is essentially zero...
  12. USR or Dream Downpipe experiences?

    Hello RBrackett, yes I recently installed a Dream Automotive high flow catted DP, Vibrant J-Tube defouler and RV6 FP. It’s massive and Dream claims it matches the performance of a 3” Decat. Got it with the hard lagging option. It’s a beast, and sounds great but really expensive as far as DP’s...
  13. C&R/PWR Oil Cooler Kit Development

    I’d consider an upgraded core if compatible with the HKS oil cooler.
  14. C&R/PWR Radiator Feedback and Testing

    Thank you for this Michael. I’m scheduled for Streets of Willow Saturday August 22. Should be a hot day, so looking forward to testing the cooling mods. SOW is also a slower speed track with lots of turns, so should be a good test. PWR Race radiator here also.
  15. I want to mod my car. Where do i start?

    Hello onions, I was also a total mod n00b when I started a little over a year ago. If interested, here is my build thread with detailed step by step DIY here. I’m abit OCD so it’s a lot to take in, but the mods were posted in the order they were installed. However it’s a good resource to refer...

    Apologies, but I don’t really have a firm idea and have limited knowledge (zippo actually) about tunes, :rolleyes: so this will be a learning process and will let an expert have at it, but need to research who to trust the car with. With the parts it has, thinking 400-410HP might be possible...
  17. Fatherpain’s 2018 Type R

    Thank you, suhhh, for enjoying my build thread. Glad you found it. Welcome and hope there is useful information here for you :) Still have some significant upgrades that will be going on the car in the near future, so arrived just in time ;) Among these: HKS BOV Motec 142 ECU + tune JRZ...
  18. Looking for RV6 Rear Sway Bar Impressions

    I followed Lust’s lead and am waiting for RV6 suspension goods to arrive. The rear sway is backordered but should be restocked this week or next. Going to do one more track day stock, then hopefully the sway bar will be on for the next outing.

    Heh, thank you V3N0M for the reminder sir. :bow:Still need to spray down the engine bay also :doh:
  20. Fatherpain’s 2018 Type R

    Gave the car a much needed wash. Had a month’s worth of garage dust + the dried radiator fluid that needed to come off. Really enjoy washing the car. Especially at night or early morning when it’s quiet and cool... Rock some tunes on a bluetooth speaker and just work. Find it very relaxing and...
