mwm5094's '06 RBP Thread
Figured I would finally make a thread on my build. I currently own a 2006 LGT 5EAT in RBP, purchased the car around October of 2006 with ~11k on the clock and currently its at 92k. I feel like I am forgetting some parts so I will keep the thread updated as time goes on with additional mods. Enjoy!

Looking good. What did you use to paint the chrome rocker trim with? I'm kicking around ideas of doing the same.

Its really easy.

I love this car! great thread

dude, your old wheels looks better. The new set looks "cheap"


LosAngelesLGT 08-17-2012 07:59 PM

Funny I feel the opposite about the fitment. The wheels on the car now look like they were meant to fit it.

mwm5094 08-17-2012 08:08 PM

I like the new setup much better. I always thought about the 18x10 svns because I love those wheels but for the price I couldn't say no to the xxrs. The old setup just wasn't aggressive enough for me anymore.

I said it before, I'll say it again....that is a fine looking LGT you got there!

dustincredible 08-18-2012 08:23 AM

Love the cut out downpipe! Any YouTube clips?

mwm5094 08-18-2012 09:26 AM

Not at the moment. I'll try to get some up soon!

Legacsti11 08-18-2012 03:21 PM

Nicely done man. Are you still stock turbo? You cleared out the headlights, but didn't include it in your mods. Looks clean though man keep it up.

mwm5094 08-18-2012 05:15 PM

Yea I am still on the stock turbo. I just need to make up my mind on what I want before I pull the trigger. I only like to do things once. I originally was set on an 18g, then I changed my mind to a 16g, then 20g, then hta68, now I'm looking into the fp green. There are just so many options I don't want to regret it. :spin:

Dbl_D718 08-18-2012 05:37 PM

Car looks great! Always loved gunmetal-ish wheels on RBP.

In for vids of the cutout too!

Legacsti11 08-18-2012 05:38 PM

I hear you man I feel the same way you do, Thats why I built my tranny fully once and am doing a built short block rather than little by little. If you do any of those turbo's you should really upgrade your fuel system, Pump, injectors ect... I have a Hta68 now that I have installed yet. I am thinking to sell it maybe and get a 20G

mwm5094 08-18-2012 06:13 PM

^keep me posted. I'm interested.
