Added to faq. Today I installed my intercooler overflow reservoir. I also worked on the underpanel some. I am hoping I can keep it from being noisy. I still need to trim it up some. I am hoping it will work out.
Planning a cruise this weekend, so hopefully get some photos in.

Also in celebration of 100 pages here is a gif of the stages of my car.

So I am looking at this process for making a front emblem. If I can find a nice enough badge that fits the look I want, then maybe I can design and make my own front emblem myself.

And also to celebrate 100 pages, and 12 years of ownership I went on a cruise today and got some pics. You can see them here.

dude... that splitter looks soo sick. what did you get for the two side pieces? cause i would love to get those and then build a aluminum piece like you show that continues into a skid plates basically under the engine. i think it'd be hella clean.

I got the last set from from the guy who got them made in the UK years ago. They were made for our cars. I had intentions of making a full lip from them, but I am afraid they are going to get broken on my driveway, thanks to the way they do water drainage here. I am still debating on what I am going to do, just because of that.

Those would be pretty easy for a buddy of mine to make and sale but he would of course need enough interest. Looks great man. Ohh and I forgot your car was red before. :twisted:

Its not just my driveway, I think I would have to plan my trips as well. Most stores here have that same weird drainage in front of their drives plus a slope at the entrance. I am amazed how hard it is to get places considering how damn flat it is here. I really mis driving back in knoxville. I think I will make a road trip in the alltrac there maybe next year just to go driving.

Yep it was red. It was perfect. Even though it turned out great, I would trade all my mods to get the car back the way it was when I bought it. It was showroom new then. I supposed one can not go to hell and back Unscathed.

So a few notes. It looks like with the ASI rad I get about 188 degrees for normal temps. I am trying to get a fix on my fuel economy as well. I have gone about 215 miles on 3/4 a tank. The first 1/4 was largely at WOT while tuning my boost controller. If I can get 300 miles a tank I would be happy. I found that when my fuel light comes on I have used around 14.9 gallons. So if I can 300 miles in that range I think the car will be acceptable.

I only have a couple of things I am doing this year. I want to make sure the window washer works, and a horn. Everything else goes to the 2012 backlog. I have one month till I got to Malaysia/ Japan, and I have some dental stuff to do, school finals, as well as release another game before I go.

Anyone know of any good shops to hunt for parts in Tokyo?

I think I am going to do this LED mod so I can get the brightness back into my dash. I am curious how hard it would be to do the temp controls as well.

There's a huge thread with contributions by Simba, JustJoe, and myself regarding LED setup in the gauge cluster and temp controls, where to get them, which to get, etc.

I'll try and find it later if you don't find it.

Needless to say, regardless which LED lights you get for the HVAC, it isn't that great due to uneven lighting. I plan to make a custom LED setup for the HVAC to get nice bright even lighting.

I am wrapping up finals and an update for our latest iphone game.
The car came a long way this year. I will be picking up next year once I get back. I will be in Malaysia and Japan. If you get bored you can follow on twitter and instagram. I will be sharing some of the stuff I run across over there.

It snowing right now, so there I hope these tires can get me through the next couple days of classes before I go.

I am back from Japan now. A bit jet lagged, but here are some photos from my trip to Japan, Singapore and Malaysia that are mostly car centric.
