@madchiller hows that 255/35 set up with the coilovers? Did you roll the fenders at all or get any rub?
I bent the fender liner tab in and that’s it. Fenders themselves are pretty flat from the factory. It rubs on the liners turning onto the street if there is a bit of a dip but on the highway it’s nice. I did have to stiffen up the coils a bit a few times.

installed the hks exhaust today but currently running the stock downpipe and frontpipe. initial thoughts about the exhaust are great. on the highway in the 3k-4k range there is no drone and you can easily hold a convo or listen to music with no issues. around town you get a bit of drone when shifting through the gears depending on how aggressive you are with the rpms. overall im happy and cant wait to hear it with the prl pipes.

Those tires aren't super loud? I heard they were unbearable to daily drive on.

i'd agree 100%.. they are super loud but performance is pretty good. they came with the wheels so they arent my first choice.

Right on, love the wheels I been trying to find someone to trade my RPF1s to for NT03s. Shot you a follow on insta as the car looks real good man. Thanks for confirming that, I am in the market for some new rubber and have long considered some RSRs.

ooh, another coupe Si build with the same color as mine! I love it. A lot of the parts you already have are parts I'm looking to get/already got (my PRL Down+Front pipe is sitting on my living room floor as I type) so don't mind me too much if I end up asking you any questions.

For example, did your PRL Downpipe throw any CELs? If so, does the ktuner clear allow you to pass smog via the OBDii port?

Your car is CLEAN AF! Can't wait to see it come together in the future :D

any downpipe especially those with no cat will throw a code. KTuner will get rid of it. Passing emissions in your area depends on the test they perform.

Yeah I figure. I've tried searching all over the web but the info is so scattered. In Las Vegas the smog check is typically a port hookup. They rarely sniff anymore. I'm hoping for good stuff next year but if not, I'll have my stock downpipe I can swap in if I have to.

Anyways, sick ride, and thank you for the information! I look forward to seeing new additions!

EDIT: my PRL downpipe is catted, so here's hoping
