    Oh meet too! Thanks for stopping by. Someday I'll change the first page to show that I'm doing the turbo, but until then I'll save the excitement for those who care to venture through my MRT!

      I think one more coat and it will be done. On the right is the corner pieces I did and on the left is the original color grey it was.

        Trust me when I say don't use those tiens unless you change the springs. Unless you nwant a very very minor drop or don't mind beating you fenders with your wheels.. I just put some upgrade springs on the front and hopefully it will keep from bottoming out. Even with light 15s and two finger gap I still hit fenders sometimes over pretty minor bumpage. Total cringe moments at speed limits or below and after the work you did on your under body.. Damping is great and thou can get 2k higher spring rate pair for the front for 80-120 if you aren't too brand picky.

        Nice snail. You will get addicted to that pull when it kicks in..

            Yeah I wish in kept my tokicos even tho they weren't adjustable. Just look at spring rates. 340 front is enough for maybe 2 inch safe drop. It has perch to drop mover three.. I did it fo r a day and couldnt drive on what looked like level road. A finger above flush was hammering my fenders still and with two I made it over bumps if I went really slow. They ride very smooth otherwise and adjusting the damper is noticeable. They are valved for up to two kg or 100 lbs stiffer springs. I found 2.5 inch inner diameter springs at 8kg instead of stock 6kg, but the car they are on now isn't running yet so I can't give feedback.

            The pic in my SIG is the height I raised it to for an acceptable ride with 17s. Looks higher than you are now.

              Don't feel bad. At least he isn't getting his hands all over your what is supposed to be tan interior! I've soiled mine for sure with how bad my F was after I pulled it out! Just give him some gloves. Because god knows we reuse out gloves at the shop I work at!

                Interesting. Well you're right about the 2" max drop and the site lists the spring rates as

                Front Spring Rate: 6. = 336 lbs/in
                Rear Spring Rate: 280 lbs/in
                Minimum Ride Height Front: -53mm (-2.1 inches)
                Minimum Ride Height Rear: -41mm (-1.6 inches)

                From what I read it was just those who improperly dropped/adjusted them who suffered from UCA pound etc. But this does concern me as the whole point of getting coilovers was go past the 2" drop I have now with eibachs/kyb. So does tein make a 8lbs spring for this application, or what spring are you using?

                        the sad news is that i have to lose the fogs

                          well the good news is that losing the extra lighting wont matter at all. with the turbo and all, you wont need to see whats in front of you because with how fast you'll be going you will probably hit whatever is in the road before you see it. j/k

                              Cleaned up the engine bay some more today.....







                              Will also need to lower the car some more. Will wait till after the exhaust goes on. I went with a flowmaster exhaust with no CAT and 3" piping.
