Why? It's the full face disc. It's perfect for daily driving.

You have a death wish if you use a 3 point harness in any car.

Get delrin bushing for the diff. You'll thank me.

What is dangerous about an OEM 3 point harness on the street? I was always under impression that it will be safer then a 6 point for daily driving purposes.

I think Josh means using a 5 or 6 point like a 3 point. Using only the lap and crotch belts. Which is very stupid

yes, he's assuming Sergei has some sort of sub belt-free Pep Boys harness, which he doesn't.

Finally got around to powder coating my valve cover yesterday. Pictures of the entire process. Prep work was a bitch since it was spray painted flat red before and my friend did a damn good job spraying it.

When I saw the prices on the first page, I had to grab a towel to wipe off my computer screen. **** was funny.

Anyway, car looks real clean. What manifold did you get?

SD Bilsteins are sold. Ordered FM V-maxx classic (non-adjustable) and a MazdaSpeed 14mm rear sway bar. Will drive on these for a while until this becomes a full-on race car.

I think you'll like the vmaxx. They're a real nice blend of performance/comfort. If I wasn't so picky about ride quality and the roads around here were better, I'd have kept mine.

And i'm loving the turbo setup coming together. Should be a fun lil car
