Yup it has a Cobb OTS tune at the moment and have to pickup charge pipes and I'll be full bolt on's. Then I get a good tune on the car.

Day 2 of the Michilen PSS tires.

Still missing the knife edge turn in of the F1s. However, grip is pretty good. This morning on cold tires I took the Route 53 SB On-ramp @ Lake-Cook close to 65mph. Usually about 60mph the 40k F1's would start to wash out. But they were 2 years old and 40,000 miles.

Got the catch can installed. Took me maybe 2 and half hours, which isnt bad since they say the "norm" is 2 hours. This was with taking periodic breaks to come into the AC and change shirts that I kept soaking thru And I also had a couple minor hiccups that were completely my fault because I just wasnt thinking.

I'll put pics up later after I grab them off the camera. Including some pics of my valves if they came out ok, which were a little shocking to me considering my car only has 5k miles on it.

Yeah, ton of them. It does happen to be a cheap sport compact thats good at lots of things. Which helps. Its hard not to grin when you drive a car thats so eager to turn in the only thing you can compare it to is a Chihuahua on a caffeine kick..

Not that I'm trying to talk you into buying my car... but I got a 2.24% rate from Consumers Credit Union for a 5 year loan.

Depending on how low you got them on a new car purchase, buying new with 0% would definitely have the potential to work out in your favor.

Thats pretty much the color I want. Stealth Gray, haven't seen any decent pics of the Shadow Black though.

Nitrous Blue looks awesome, but I found out its a 4 stage paint. And a 4 stage paint will probably be a bitch to match.
