Thanks. I actually did some more work to it. I think I'll post the revised version to my DA account.

I am revisiting my battery relocation. I ground to the chassis, but not to the engine. I am thinking of running an additional ground.
I currently run two big bolts through the rear floor pan to hold my metal tray down. I did not think of using anchor bolts like the stock one does. I am going to look into some short j hook bolts and likely move my battery to a location to maximizes my space in the trunk and lets me remove it as well.

I don't think there's much point in running another ground back to the engine bay, I mean the entire body is a ground after all.

it is a good idea to run a wire between the block and the negative terminal, as the return path for the spark/ignition circuit is much better achieved through a direct copper path, as opposed to a steel path, with many contact points

From what I have read starting is better with the ground to engine. I know once I added several ground to the engine the car ran considerably better, so I think there is something to this. Right now I am just going to get my charging array setup, I will extend the ground later on. I will likely just run two on the chassis for now.

I found my future wheel if they make proper offsets and widths in 17s.

Thanks. I am starting to do a few things to it before I get too busy and it gets too hot. I was looking at the Sard exhaust and I think I can remove the silencer mechanism. Its held on by 3 bolts in the exhaust tip. I am curious how it will drive with the device removed and how much louder it will be.
I also noticed apexi makes a similar silencer. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/APEXI-ACTIVE ... 0816634219

I removed the Sard's silencer last night. Before doing so I got video so there is a sound comparison before and after.
The outlet was usually 1.4" unless under heavy load. The tip is 3.8." I think the silencer was too restrictive. Now that its gone I am going to adjust my boost controller.

Video of the comparison.

I bet you could tune that silencer a bit by cutting some coils from that spring that keeps it shut...

Probably easier said than done by the looks of it.

I'm just going to leave it out. Its not worth the trouble, and the exhaust is not so loud that its a problem.

No, I have a 3" turbo back dp, and mid pipe. The sard system is 2.5"

Tonight I converted my banjo bolts on my rear 205 calipers to direct adapters using earl's fittings. PN: 592032ERL
I just removed the banjo fitting from my line and now the line goes directly to the caliper. It fits a bit better now too in the rear. I bled the whole system, and the brakes are nice and progressive again as well as constant. Now I am waiting on my extended ball joints, then I can do my alignment. I am working up a todo list, and I will start slowly checking things off.
