Yeah dude, I'd love to make some cash on the side. PM me and let's chat.

The reason the 2+ mpg is important to us is because we're spending $800 a month on gas between us. I drive to El Segundo everyday and she's racking up almost as many miles. 2+ mpg could save one tank a month, more if we can get to the 25 mpg range. I remain hopeful!

3. There is a fantastic alignment shop that is open Saturdays but I'll have to ping my nephew for details. I've heard they are as good as Darrin at Westend (which says a lot). BTW, you can go as high as -2 to -2.2* up front with no adverse tire wear (match that with -1* difference in the rear).

4. A proper tune can make this happen for you but closer to 23-24 on the hwy. I get about 25-26 in my Spec-B.

Nothing really wrong with any of this;

a) Cobb AccessPORT w/ Stage I Pro Tune (California smog reasons)
b) Cobb SF Intake w/Intake Box
c) Cobb Post-MAF Hose
d) Grimmspeed Up-Pipe
e) Magnaflow CBE


f) 3-Port BCS
Mainly assists the tuner
g) Walbro 255 lph FP
If not going for power I fail to see how this may help
h) Grimmspeed AOS
Not needed, but may keep some oil out of your intake but not much at near stock power levels.


j) 2.0-Liter De-Stroker from EJ207
k) Perrin TMIC

For the most part, this setup would look stock (important to me). It would boost power into the 250 whp range (I am guessing, correct me if wrong), pass smog, and presumably bump mpg into the 26+ highway range.

It's hard for me to imagine that +2 mph is important to some.

Car looks great btw.
