Finally decided to make a thread after a few months


The day I picked it up from the docks.


Unfortunately not long after the fuel pump died so...







Deatschwerks DW200, a pump install kit and fuel pressure gauge kit from CJM went in



A few weeks pass and it starts having intermittent starting issues and the fuel level gauge ends up at different levels while driving. I toned the harness out and the stock wiring was fine but there was a short in the factory fuel top hat. So CJM to the rescue again with their billet top hat and milspec bulkhead connector.

With the reliability stuff out of the way I moved onto the stereo. The headunit I chose was the Sony MEX-XB100BT, a friend was clearing out some stuff and gave me an older Rockford 25 to life 5 channel amp to power the CT Sounds Meso 6.5" components and a Rockford Prime 10" sub in a slot ported enclosure.


Magnet comparison


I cut the stock speaker out of the frame and used that to mount the new speakers.


I am still waiting on these to come back from the body shop. I don't have the patience for sanding body filler to shape.


Amp mounted on some stainless stilts, the sub and enclosure are below the new trunk floor. I made everything from 5/8" MDF. Waiting for a speaker grill to come in to finish it off.

It definitely won't rattle anyone's windows but it's clean even when played loud.

Next up....Suspension!

Ordered up the following from THMotorsports
Fortune Auto 500 series coilovers with 12k/10k springs
Voodoo 13 rear traction rods
Voodoo 13 rear subframe solid bushings
Whiteline diff bushings
SPL eccentric lock out kit

And Z1 Motorsports
Street front upper control arms (no race arms in stock at the time)
Race rear camber arm

Onto the pics


Control arms


Diff bushings


Worst 3 hours of my life


All bushings changed, subframe and diff repainted with VHT chassis epoxy paint. I painted all the rest of the under braces too.


Z1 & Voodoo rear arms installed


Sexy new coilovers from Fortune


Rear springs in. Was setting ride height without the shock in first


Fortune front coils & Z1 upper arms


As it sits as of Thursday. I need to raise the rear up about a half inch. When i set the rear right height I didn't take into account putting preload on the springs.

Since the Z1 arms are a chore to adjust, I am trying to get them as close to -2* as possible to cut down on labor when it gets aligned. I have the passenger at 2* according to my Iphone being pressed against the brake rotor, the drivers side still needs work as that's at -3.7*.


I did a few cosmetic things while I was waiting on a few parts to arrive.


Rear duck bill (My friends LS1 FD in the back ground)


Mocking up the front lip. Thinking to black out the bumper mouth and paint the outer parts of the lip white like what people do with the 3 piece Evo-R lip. Also you can kinda make out the blacked out the headlight housings and paint matched shrouds.

That's pretty up to date. I'll be finishing the adjustments today after work and taking the car to get aligned on monday.

I loved that lip. Goes well with the skirts and spats that came with it. I recommend 3M VHB (white/silver). You will need to explore where there are gaps and double up on the VHB (2 layers or even more in some parts) because the back side is uneven. I also recommend skid plates for the edges (those in front of the tires) for longer life. Use an aluminum sheet if you can find one. Steel sheets will rust unless you don't mind. All this from past experience/learnings.

Thanks everyone.

Setting the front ride height was kicking my *** saturday night. I had some 2x6 under the front tires so i was able to get the jack under the car. Got the measurements between the wheel center and the fender perfect, rolled car off the 2x6 and it's 1/2" higher in the front than it should be.

I'll finish up thursday and drop it for alignment then.

Got a great deal on a single rear wheel from MacCool, once I get my hands on another it will be tire's and sway's time.

Had the car in the body shop to fix some rust spots and to paint/install the front lip while I was in Vegas at Sema.


Hatch hinge rust


Repaired and primed

Nice. Very similar to when I started with my first kit. Not sure what you plan on doing for next but I recommend getting the side skirts that go with it instead of the side blades many people go with. And push out the wheels with spacers. Congrats.

I am pretty happy with it aesthetics wise for the time being. I have 20mm spacers all around at the moment.

Once I find another deal on a sport rear wheel I'll be able to go 19x10 all around with 285's.

Next round of mods is going to be a Cusco RS 1.5 way diff, the above wheel/tire setup and some Hotchkis or Whiteline sway bars.

I agree with hotrodz. One I recall was more like a factory defect that should have been caught before landing on the consumer. Whiteline took care of it though and covered it.
