I removed the ac condensor and only the lines that were in the bumper. The rest of the ac will get the boot when i get a ribbed pulley. I also removed the stock bumper support and the foam in the bumper in favor of a CS bumper support that will be here soon. The fog lights are gone too and the engine undercovers are temperarly removed. Thats like 40 pounds of crap thats gone :smokes:

no fitment issues yet and it clears the o2 sensor and the hood fine :D

I know, its nasty under there. What would you recomend i use. Just a pressure washer or some sort of cleaner. I want to powdercoat everything but unless i could do it myself for the cost of the suplies it would be too expensive

DO NOT SPRAY DEGREASER ON ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS.

Other than that, spray away and then hose that bitch down.

you could've saved another 30lbs by putting in a PC680 battery too :wink:

nice to see the straight intake w/Apex-i filter installed.
we have one of those waiting to go on also.
only 1 question...is the AFM in sideways?
i've read that it can mess things up if it's not flat :shrug:

thats the plan :)

shaun also makes the point i was thinking about with the battery. If i want to, ill get a smaller one for racing only. Plus my hookup got me the battery for $100 flat. And i can sell my other one since it was new.

As for the afm being sideways its the only way itll fit and according to dustin itll be fine

i didn't even think of that...sorry :oops:

it gets cold here in the winter, but i guess not cold enough to make a PC680 poop out since the MR2's has lasted thru many winters :)
