Thanks! I`ll snap some pics in a few minutes. I may have just delayed myself again in the interest of getting coilovers.

Just for you Jon:

Has anyone else got meth injection in their 185? I'm curious as to how people run the line.

To do list:

Install AEM meth kit
HFH replacement
Clean intercooler
Install passenger front brakes
Install rear brake lines
Install rear brake rotors
Replace O2 sensor x2
Compression test
Install clutch line
Reinstall turbo/manifold/dp
Reinstall rad
Complete intercooler sprayer wiring
Order & install coilovers (Megan springs in the meantime)
Brake flush
Install RallyArmor flaps
Install aluminum cluster surround

And probably some other stuff I'm forgetting. I'm likely going to leave everything but the HFH/turbo bits for a while, as the Fathers Day Show and Shine is next weekend and I need to get it driveable by then. If I have to, I'll button it all back up, drive it down, drive it back, then tear it all back down again. I figure there's not much point swapping the rear brake lines only to yank them out again when I do the coilovers and rear bushings.

Thanks!

I just learned that the "devils number" was recently discovered to actually be 613, not 666. Maybe my car will behave a little better now?

Small update to the shopping list, also got the turbo back in last night with some help from a friend of mine. I hate that hardline for the turbo oil feed/drain so much I ordered a kit to replace it with braided lines. That and the rubber elbow at the bottom of the oil drain is old as hell, and the clamps as so worn I can compress them with my fingers - yikes!

I got everything back together sans brake fluid before realising I forgot to renew my insurance so I couldn't take it down to the car show anyways. So now I'm back to tearing it apart again, new brake pads are on order to go with all the new rotors, and BC Racing coilovers should be on order within the next couple days. Unfortunately it looks like it won't be moving until late July/early August at the current rate, as I'm picking up a bunch of parts in a week and a half, then I'm out of town July 6-18th. Bah.

All my GT4 Racing bits aside from the swaybar endlinks showed up so I'll be dropping the subframe once I get back from vacation. I also picked up my turbo oil line kit, rear strut tower bar and rear rotors from a friend in Van who has a US mailbox this weekend, along with some solid motor mounts and spare TVIS bits/injectors/speakers from Corey.

I've started unhooking the rear end so I can drop it, get the old bushings pressed out, get everything powdercoated, and get the new ones pressed in.

So far the rear crossmemeber is out, and all the arms on the passenger side are removed/loose, the passenger side brake assembly is off including the ebrake (which happened in an explosion of springs) & the only thing keeping that side on is the ABS sensor. I removed the bolt but I can't get the piece of crap out for the life of me. Everything is very sticky as I doubt any of these bolts have been turned since the car left the factory, and having only hand tools & floor jacks doesn't help. There was a spider living in the drivers side hub but I think it's gone now as I removed all the webs and no new ones have appeared, so I think it's safe to start loosening up the drivers side & preparing to drop it.

In other news I'm finally able to order the coilovers I want, the downside is they take 2-3 weeks to make and then they get shipped to the border, where a friend of mine will pick them up & get them up to me at some point. So realistically the soonest this car will move is September. :bangshead:

Ordered BC Racing RAM Type coilovers from Enjuku Racing for $1199 shipped, which will take 2-3 weeks to build & 1 week to ship. The default spring rates are 8k/4k so I asked for 10k/8k to stiffen things up a little. If for some reason you guys think those numbers are off lemme know and I can call them and change the order.

To answer the question about the Enkei's, I'm honestly not sure what the offset is, they came off my friends bugeye WRX. So far the fronts appear to clear everything but the rears rubbed on the stock rear struts in my GTS. Which isn't a big deal as I want spacers anyways.

I'm assuming it should be stamped on there somewhere, but I'm too lazy to check. They look awesome on a lowered Celica so I doubt I'll ever sell them anyways.
