Both cars look amazing.
+1 on learning how to use a camera. I keep mine on automatic too, kind of a shame.

I like this too, but I already hit every-*******-thing with just the sport lip. I'd imagine the baller TDR splitter even lower and further forward would suffer the same fate as my BEGi scooper in short order.

Thanks Ben

Too bad I didn't get any pics to show the justice of how clean your car actually got, maybe i'll come over later this week and snap a few for you. Next, we'll work on cleaning your engine bay

Dopple's got MSM lamps in the top pic, which look graet complimenting his black wheels. Hmm.

MSM junx with TDR splitter:
How did you get the '01 lamps to fit the '99 bumper without gaps. I was looking at 99 vs. '01+ headlights side by side today and they are different at the corner.

One of our local guys has a debadged lava orange with the MSM splitter. Car looks great!

Yeah, they did look dark on his 10AE, darker in person. Good 'ole Cody(Fritch). RIP my friend. The 1 yr anniversary of his passing was this past Dec.

Ben has the '99 bumper with '01 lights. Compare it to the pic of the TDR splitter on the red '99.

I'm down for Saturday. Do you think Jenn would castrate one of us (or both) if her SSRs kind of made it over to my car? I'm just kidding of course; I don't want to cause trouble, but I bet it would look good.

BTW, Saturday afternoon/evening I'm celebrating at my house. Got a cool promotion at work. Probably going to get some prime ribeyes and what not. You should be there.

Yeah that works. I could always come by your house tomorrow on my way home from work in the wagon and relieve you of those enkeis so they don't continue to clutter your garage.

I also want to lower my ride height down some and with a little less rake.

Yeah we just made it work. But the lamps are a different shape, so it's not 100% perfect.

Thanks




I got me a MSM lip and TDR splitter coming. Still need to find the front cover itself. I have a willing painter once I'm ready.
I also have a driver's side MSM lamp now. Need to find a passenger side to go with it, and then I can compare the regular and MSM lamps and see which I like better.

Custom 3" exhaust by Enthuza.
This woke the car up in ways I can't describe. The difference is much more dramatic than I expected. Spool to 12 psi is improved by 600+ rpm. I'm talking 12psi by 29XX rpm according to the tach and my autometer boost gauge. I've never been able to get the xede to datalog.

The car is completely transformed from "OK" to "OMG". First gear is completely worthless for anything but a roll on. This is with 8" wide wheels and warm, summer tires. 2nd and 3rd pull hard. I've got some lean tip in issues to tune out in 4-6, but once it starts to make boost, it takes off. It now pushes me back into the seat. Jason has a G-Meter that I need to borrow.

Very hard to get good pics of, especially in failing light. But enjoy.

Similar to what Corksport has, but Jason's version is much cleaner and far less "bling"...which is a good thing.

I like how that piping is routed... but with the canon brace I have it probably won't work for me :(
