I think i'm going to try the kumho v720's. I'll be spending a few more $$ but I'd rather have tires sooner and I don't want to have to worry about the prepaid debit rebate bs on the rivals

Where can I buy one of these unions local? Would advance, autozone, etc carry it? (And I really don't want to spend $20 shipped from trackspeed) <br /><br />Name:  prop_valve_zpsekwp7soj.jpg

That's customer service right there! Thanks Sav! And for the record... $8 is fair. Shipping from CA to NJ and waiting a week + for a tiny simple part is why I said that. I've ordered quite a few bits from trackspeed for my build lol /plug

I list it separately becuase I get asked about it. We only carry them because they come in the prop valve kit, along with our beefy steel adapter fittings.

<p>Welp after all I've accomplished and been through.... car is sold! Sad to see it go but I look forward to what will come in the next few years. Intend to put the $$ from sale + whatever I can save in the meantime as a downpayment on a FocusRS or maybe an STi depending what Subaru does in the next few years. That all won't happen until my wife's Escape is paid off so I will have a bit of a lull in the &quot;Fun car&quot; department but that's Ok. Time should go buy quick the next few years with our first born coming in January. I just would like to give one final THANKS to everyone here on MT.Net who helped in various ways with this build. I hope the new owner joins up and enjoy's the **** out of this car... It is a blast!<br /><br />For the record ... To anyone who may stumble upon this thread in the future.... If I had to do it all over again (With an NA) I'd buy a 1.8 car with a torsen, slap on a FM no electronic's and Ms3x, another set of Konig or rpf1's with sticky tires, and FM suspension and call it a day. Building the turbo setup one piece at a time was a pain in the *** and I don't think i'd do it again (Although the outcome was awesome, it just cost a lot more and took a ton more time)</p>
