Some nice toys there, but no way i could live with that paint. It would drive me insane!!


Paint drives me insane as well. It looked good for a while, but a poor job was done. I hope to get it repainted early next year.

3rd gen swap, Tein HAs, cusco underbrace, whiteline sways and strut bars, mario solid rear mount, and hopefully some caster bushings very soon.

One alltrac came. Mine was running, but I still needed to make an intake and fix code 54. Fixed the code now, I am just waiting on the intake. its been running for two weeks. I have driven it very short distances. As soon as I fix the intake I can take it on the road.

Ah, it was you who had the Sard Arouse MIG!

I remember seeing it all the time on the old board and It was bugging the hell out of me trying to figure out who it was.

Here is a pic to give you an idea of the fender clearance.
After the swap is comepletely done, all I am doing for a long while is alignment, installing my performance parts and new paint job. Then I just want to enjoy and learn the car for a while.

BTW: This tire combo is much larger than a 185 rolling dia. but not all that much larger than the st205s. So compared to a 205, the performance should be decent. Plus I have some nice things to really up the power very soon.

st185
205/40-17 3.2in 11.7in 23.5in 73.7in 860 0.0%
255/40-17 4.0in 12.5in 25.0in 78.6in 806 6.7%

st205
215/50-16 4.2in 12.2in 24.5in 76.9in 824 0.0%
255/40-17 4.0in 12.5in 25.0in 78.6in 806 2.3%

25mm spacer on the rear, none on the front.

I had a 8mm on the front, but could not get it to bolt down tight enough. It still fit though. I will most likely install the space when I get some longer front studs.

I have not been able to take it further than 50' (No proper intake). I am wiating on an intake to be made. My matrials are still on their way. I will give a full driving report very soon.

I will most likely have to roll the rear fenders.

Most likely, there will be rubbing whenever the rear struts compress. I experience that with my own Tein setup and my car appears to be sitting higher up than in the pics. Normal driving should be fine. I'm not sure about the fronts, but they should react in a similar fashion..

And for reference my rears have been dialed in on the stiffer end of the spectrum..

But are you HAs or SS? I have very little movement with the HAs on a stiff setting. I think I am going to rig up an intake saturday cause its killing me not to try out the car.

I have SS, but my height setting is also higher than yours.. You're about an inch lower than I am.. And you should have some give in the rears. You don't want the rears to be rock solid with no give.

And with mine, I only experience it on large / sudden dips, not something gradual.

The wheels are now discontinued. You might find them overstocked or used.

I just drove it around the lot cause I had to move it out of my way. The fronts slightly rub the fender plastic at full lock. Only on the rear section. I may need to make a few adjustments.

Just took it for a quick run to the gas station. Didn't want to push it too much due to the code 54. I am only getting a little rub turning right at full lock. Other than that it seems pretty smooth.

I need to adjust my right front. It is higher than the rest of the car. This may be my solution to the rubbing problem.
