What size wheels you running? Will fitment be the same with me running 19x8.5” bbs wheels?Long overdue update
It's been a minute since I've updated this and a few things have changed. Some are pretty big, some minor, but cool none the less.
First off. Eibach Prokit springs got installed along with the BMSpec front airdam I've been sitting on for a few months now (almost a year ). Had both installed at the same time at the same shop. They did it at a fair price, and I've continued to get work done by them.
Oooooh the stance, the fitment
Dat lip doe
I also did some lighting changes. I went from amber to JDM yellow fog light vinyl overlays to match my super bright LED highbeams. I had an encounter with some road debris that took out one of my fog lights. Lamin-x did its job though, and there was no crack in the lens. I took the opportunity to install some HID fogs in. I used some Xenon Depot bulbs I got on clearance and some DDM ballasts, both from Brisource.com . Borderline too bright, but the color and visibility in inclement weather... The glare might be dangerous though, and I'm debating on switching back to halogens.
I also got a set of white smoked Helix side markers from Unity Performance. Rocking the harlequin two tone alla @CanadiaegeanBlue
And now, turbo time! I took advantage of tax time sales and got a PRL catted downpipe and the MHI TD03 turbo upgrade. The downpipe has added a nice growl to the stock exhaust note and even some burbles. I'm currently in the middle of a street tune for the turbo and will hit a dyno with results soon. Per the shop that did the install, the install was fast and the turbo bolted right up with no issues. Time will tell if the price difference over the W1 is worth it, but given my power goals, I'm ok with it.
Not really that big
Can you tell it's been done??
Most recently, I went full Acuity shifter add-ons. I added the cable bushings. I installed the smaller bushing upside down and posted the pic on IG. Acuity DM me and pointed out my error. I corrected my upside-down-ness soon after. Big props to them for the solid!!!
They definitely give each shift a satisfying finish everytime. I'm surprised how subtle yet substantial the difference is. The shifts just feel more solid and secure. I may make the jump to a full Hybrid or Acuity short shifter, but I don't know... This is pretty darn good.
As usual, sorry so pic heavy.
More to come...
Complete tune and dyno
Who knows what else
