    Basically done with the car. It's absolutely great and anything more I did to it would really screw it up in my eyes as far as the way it drives. It's nothing special, just the run of the mill ej20 daily driver with a vf30.

    I can't stress how much fun it has been lately. Just threw on a fresh set of es100's and it drives great and much more quietly than it did on my kuhmo MX's.

    I have a few new things coming, including a hoodscoop and a set of hella horns (both have good reasons, hoodscoop was a great deal and the hellas because people don't seem to see my frikkin car and are too senile to hear my horn and change lanes on to me :( )

    pulled 280/283 on a mustang dyno this summer.

    Nice. Not a huge fan of the bug-eye, but the JDM projectors are definitely better than the stocks. Nice dyno numbers, by the way! Eventually, I'll do something big with my car, just don't have the money right now. Either aftermarket turbo or WRX swap, especially if I can get one of the 2.5L turbo engines.

    it's pink.

    it'll look better once I sort out some fog covers. Don't want to have another episode of broken foglights :(

    just something i'm curious about; when you get the covers, you can't use the fogs. so what do you do, take them off when its foggy? i'm not making fun, i just don't understand. :confused:

    i do like the car, bonus points for no wing :bigthumb:

    Yeah, one of my fogs is broken now. Trying to decide if I want to replace it with another stocker, covers, or aftermarket lights. I like having the lights, so I'll probably go with some Hellas, and get some RockBlocker to put on them to protect them. Unless I can find he covers with the metal mesh, so I still have the lights. But those are hard to find for the GC8-style.

    yup. just remove em when you want to use them. I have some solid covers from a while back. I used to put them on for long trips but they were replica sti covers so they kinda...didn't fit right.


    do basically im going to have to get real ones :(

    I need something to protect them though. foglights are expensive.
