Update: Went with MHG afterall - TTE 1.2mm with milled Cylinder head.
Update 2: Seems all the car's fuel/hesitation issues were due to a faulty AFM
Well, seeing as all my parts are just about here, I figured it would be a good time to finally start a project thread for my car.
Bit of history:
Car was imported by J-spec Imports of Austrailia in Feb 2007 with 40150km. I purchased the car while it was enroute for $6900 canadian.
Final total for car including intresest on loan was $8000.
Here are some of the pictures while it was waiting for an owner in Japan.
And here's a shot of the engine bay after a bit of scrubbing.
After putting a good 25k km on the car in the past year - and having paid off my loan - I decided it was time to get another loan, and buy some tune up and performace parts for my car.
The 1st modification I bought for the car was the Speedsource Brass cable bushings. Then came a C's Short Shift from Japan, and a Redline Goods Leather shift boot from Poland to go with it.
No more chicken leg
After that, i was set on improving the stance of the car, and wanted to buy it some new wheels. When Teamfaint put his OZ's up for sale, i had to get them. All i have to say is wow, I had to idea the wheels would sit out so wide.
Here is a list of the modifications that will be installed within the next week or so. EDIT: ....... HAHAHAHA

And when i have more cash, a Bay Area TMIC
When i have more cash, an HKS EVC 5 set to 10-11 PSI
Body & Weight Reduction:
RC Aluminum Front Bumper Bar. -30 lbs EDIT: Only weighs 25 lbs with Foggies. So Approx 20lbs reduction.
KO Downpipe. -10-15 lbs
ORC Clutch. - 7 lbs
Aluminum Rad - ?
ST205 Small Starter - ?
Removed front license plate holder, so now I'll take bumper to the shop to get the holes filled and repainted.
So estimated weight will be around 3205 lbs from 3262.
And that should pretty much cover it for a while
Eventually I will get some DMS 40mm Suspension and a 2.5 Exhaust from Rocket Rally. But maybe in a couple of years. Since they are a DMS dealer, while they install my exhaust and suspension, they can put the car on their dyno
I'll start posting up pics of all the work once my friend and i get started
thanks for looking
