More Updates

2/28/10
Big thanks to Tony @ Evasive for the help.

I originally wanted to purchase the Project Kicks NEO lugs, but after some thought I decided against it and got these Black Bullocks instead. I think they don't take attention away from the wheels and go well with the black Enkei decals on the lip.








...and to my pleasant surprise, included was Seibon's 2009 calander!
Miss Jan and Miss October can def get it!






3/4/10

Here's is another teaser of the wheel fitment... keep in mind that the tire sizes are too small and I need to lower the front another .5" and the rear another 1".

Hey guys, another updated!

Thanks to the guys at JHP my Goodridge steel braided brake lines arrived promptly.
The quality looks good and the reviews on these are posotive. I think that matched to the RacingBrakes 2 piece slotted rotors and Hawk HPS pads the stopping power will be significantly improved.





Now all I'm waiting for are the CompTech sway bars to come back from the powder coater and the T1R rear tie rods to arrive. Then I just gotta make some time to get under the car and put everything on.

After some waiting my T1R adjustable rear tie rods finally came in.
Hopefully the powder coater will finish my sway bars this week and I can finally get everything on the car, dial up the suspension and get to the track for a few test laps

RedBull gives you wings, but Weksos gives me NRG!


I cam home last night to find a little box sleeping on my doorstep
It was my NR>G quick release kit. The kit includes the short hub, the new v2.5 quick release and the security lock.
I have to say, I was very impressed by the quality and the finish of this product. As silly as it sounds, it's one of my favorite pieces.

Finally got the Comptech sway bars back from the powder coater.
They look great! I can't wait to get them on the car

been working like crazy... work has been busy and I've been doing a few side projects as well. Been working on my website stateofstance.com, been shooting a few features on some cars and some models, and have been coordinating the SoS M&G on Memorial Weekend. And on occasion still piling up parts for the car, like this new addition:

4/6/10

The 4-point Strut Tower Bar arrived. This is one of my favorite pieces. I wrote an article that is on the TTech homepage about this 4pt STB and have been in love with it ever since.









I can't wait to finally get everything on the car... I've just been so busy with work that I have barely had time to just wash the car once a week

4/26/10

ok.. It's been 20days.. so here is a teaser

I've been waiting to do a mini tech day on the car, but I got bored yesterday so I modded and wrapped the intake chamber and installed the 4-point tower brace.



...and yes, I heat wrapped the entire box (not just the top)



after some testing at 15min idle with a temp probe, intake temp inside the box dropped close to 17degrees.
this weekend I'll be installing the intake manifold spacer and removing the coolant line from the throttle body.

Thx meng!

I decided I'm going to hold off on the intake spacer install. The spacer will not only insulate the heat of the head from the intake manifold, but it also blocks off the hole that allows coolant to run through the manifold and throttle body.

Basically coolant will be lost and I will need to refill. There is no point in making a mess now just to do it again when I install the new radiator hoses and thermostat. So I decided to just wait until the hoses, thermostat, thermo switch and new reservoir tank get here to do the whole thing at one shot.

Plus I made some phone calls and got some new "top secret” plans for the intake manifold once I have it off the car… bwahahah
