yeah, stock wheels on for winter, and car was on a jack so I could calibrate my wideband.....

I'll try and get a sound file up tomorrow.... It gets tuned at 1pm.... so I'll try and get a camera in there for the last few runs of the session.... i'll make sure to post scans of the printout also....

The drivers exit is cool, but it's crooked as ****. Looks like you got rear ended and bent the tip 45 degress.

I might try something similar but with a subtle turn town hidden behind the bumper.

yeah, The pipe itself isn't actually crooked..... it just follows straight out of the termination of the FM midpipe to minimize bends.... Form over function I guess.... I was tired of the "standard" thing that seems to get done over and over....

What seat do you have and is it mounted on the floor or on rails? Just asking because i'm looking at seats for the '99.

corbeau forza, and mounted to corbeau rails..... touches the door a bit... but no biggie... I would however reccomend a different seat, as mine has ripped along the "wear patch" ( the leather portion on the bolster ) on the drivers side where I enter the car... The bolsters are so high that it is nearly impossible to enter the car without rubbing across this portion, and it has therefore rubbed away and separated.... I love the seat otherwise... but this makes it look like crap. I also sit a bit higher than stock with the seat pad in, but it is easily removed and I then sit as low, or lower than stock.....

and the car looks completely different without the stock wheels.... they're sooo "girly" to me.... I'm debating selling my 17's and going to 15x8's.... but I'm still not sure what I'll be doing.....

I'm up mad late stressing about my tuning appointment tomorrow..... 1pm I find out how good my setup actually is.... it's like I'm being graded on a final project or something.... I'm freaking out.... can't sleep, smoked like 2 packs of cigs since 5pm..... I'm a mess....lol

I looked at the Corbeau's but I wasn't getting good reviews for them lasting long for daily use. I really like the Corbeau FX-1 Pro, think that's what it was, it's narrow with good support. I think i'm gonna get a sparco speed and mount it on the floor without rails. They look good and are relatively cheap as well. What wheels are you talking about, not the ones in these pictures are you? I have the Konig Imagine 17's and like them even though they're heavy.
Good luck with the tuning session.

Nope, he joined three days ago and has posted a bunch of random **** to get his 20posts just so he could part out his car in the Classifieds.

The OEM wheels look better. The 17" are too large in my opinion and look like wagon wheels.
