Here's the beast in the backyard. Just rolled past 111k.
My other beast photobombs on the reg. Meet Athena.
IPD Track-Spec Swaybar Kit
IPD track swaybar kit. Can't wait to get it installed.
I got fresh flywheel bolts, an angle gear service kit, new rear main seal, and stainless braided brake lines. Tossed it all in a ziploc so I don't lose anything before it goes to the shop.
Go Fast Goodies
These are the fun parts. SPEC stage 3+ clutch, SPEC single mass flywheel. There's also the IPD hardware kit for the swaybars, IPD subframe bushing inserts, new headlight washer blades, the V-Band adapter from the boostability kit, and a wiper arm bolt cover.
Quaife QDF14J! This guy is going in with the other parts. I'm waiting for everything to show up before dropping it off at the shop. I mean everything- they have to take the whole front end apart to install this thing, so anything they /can/ replace will be replaced. There's a fresh clutch slave cylinder, pilot and release bearings, differential bearings, brake lines, downpipe. Just about everything.
Took a while to figure out how to get photos up! Flickr's beta look doesn't have the option to post code... didn't realize that. Took an hour of head-scratching and cussing before I opted out of the beta. Now it's easy enough.
UR brace, charge air pipe, IPD poly upper engine mount bushing.
****ING STUPID ASS TURBO INLET PIPE GODDAMMIT
Installed a Thule air deflector. I think I like it. I haven't really decided yet.
CCM bulb installed, Black Again applied to trim and roof rack, GROM issues sorted out, fog light installed, new fusebox cover in, sound deadening half done.
The foam rubber hole cover was missing, as was the top torx screw in the door handle. Also, the door unlock cable housing plastic was snapped off at the base and two of the speaker mounting rivets had been drilled. Stupid ****ing window replacement shop. I'm working with Syracuse Customs to replace the rivets with stainless steel anchors.
The hole is sealed again. Might superglue the the door cable housing, but might not.
Door panel before
Door panel during
Door panel complete. Both of the front doors are done, and it makes a world of difference. Rear doors, firewall, and floor pan are all on the list. I'll probably tackle the rear doors next because they're easy. The firewall and floor are going to have to wait until the shop has time. They're both big jobs.
It's taken a few months, but most of the work has been done. Here's a list in order of completion (I think).
