Engine bay progression:

And even more after this weekend. I really wanted to keep the oem look but the TMIC limitations finally got to me. Today 5/31/2010, Racer-X FMIC, Crawford AOS, and once the turbo arrives the KS-Tech 73mm CAI goes on also.

Let me be the first to say, you are intelligently and tastefully modding your car, Drew!

Tomorrow I'll actually get the height measurement for you. </ slacker>

Drew888 03-07-2008 06:39 PM

Thanks man!

I fix the problems first. Except for a couple of items ;)

After the wheels/tires are the brakes - way too mushy. Although I have not yet gotten them to fade (surprised, because I had warped two sets of rotors on the street on my WRX with the way I drive) they have lousy feel. I can't wait to address this issue.

No worries, I apreciate the assist.

I'm getting flack from a couple of friends (handling before power purists) for wanting to lower it any more than it is. There argument is that Myles has done all the research and this is the height for the best handling. I think it's still too high...just a bit anyway. I'd like to drop in another .5"

J.O.B is driving me nuts then there's the honey do list. She wants to paint the entire interior of the house., I just called our painter and set it up. Still 3 days tip toeing around everything covered in plastic. So, a long story short...:D I hope to get those pics up this weekend.


Drew888 03-21-2008 06:54 PM

Amazing thing ....ceramic coating and DEI Titanium heat wrap. After several WOT runs I can immediately touch the pipe off the turbo. Underhood temps are definately under control now. Only thing I'm now concerned about is the increase in heat the FMIC has to handle. I have a temp gun and never thought to test it beforehand.

what are hood struts?

Riggs 03-21-2008 10:13 PM

Very clean. Post a pic with the black OZs when you have them!

Hood struts/dampers:

Drew888 04-09-2009 06:08 PM

Updated...finally. :D

Go~Rilla 04-09-2009 06:22 PM

Nice dude. I think were kinda like brothers.

Spoonwacker 04-09-2009 11:57 PM

Looks good! I like the stealthy TMIC!

edssti 04-10-2009 12:53 AM

great looking car!!

katalyst 04-10-2009 09:13 AM

IIRC you had ion springs with your bilsteins at one point is that correct?

how does that setup compare to the tarmac coils ? and which ion spring combo were you running?

fonts 04-10-2009 11:09 AM

Looks good and a nice list of mods.

Well done.

Drew888 04-10-2009 11:17 AM

Thanks guys...trying hard to keep it as clean as possible.

I never had Ion springs. Back in the day, if I were to use springs I would have tried Ions's though. You may be remembering me reasearching and asking questions about them.
I went straight to the Tarmac's. Pretty much anything that RCE, & Grimmspeed come out with is so good there isn't anything else to consider. AVO is another but expensive...still saving for the turbo and mufflers.

Haha...Go~Rilla, you'res looks great to, main diff is you are throwing much more $ at yours ;)
