    Not much of an update, but so far the car is running great! No complaints at all. Couldn't stand the monster truck look any longer, so in went the Koni Yellows and because I haven't ordered my ground controls yet, the crew at RTR let me borrow some coils they had laying around the shop until I get the ground controls. Now that's what I call customer service!! It always amazed me how dropping your car makes it look 100x better!
    Went from this ride height.....

    To this....

    Ok, so decided to upgrade suspension now. Ordered quite a few items, the first few came in the mail today...
    Beaks lower tie bar

    ASR 24mm rear sway bar....

    ASR subframe brace...


    Still waiting on ground control coils with custom spring rates for road course action, blackworks billet LCA's, and a both front and rear tow hooks for looks.

    Paint was gonna be next, but came up on a deal for a car that I've always wanted but could never find....., here's a teaser pic....

    This will be replacing my Lexus as the new DD.

    Small update. I know I thought I would stop on the performance mods until the suspension is done, the paint is done, and more importantly after I sell the Lexus, but I stumbled across one helluva deal so I had to jump on it! It's a RBC intake manifold with hondata intake manifold gasket. These OEM replacement manifolds are a 8+hp dyno proven bolt on, and after Endyne does their magic on it, it will flow about as good as a good set of ITB's. Picked it up with the hondata gasket and a spare type s fuel rail and injectors for $60! So I pretty much got it for free because I'm gonna sell the rail and injectors which go for $60-80. I love FREE parts!! LOL

    Ok, so gotta go back, back to school again on Monday. So, I decided to get off my lazy ass and get all that suspension goodness installed. Went over to RTR today to get started. And with the help of the RTR boys, we finished installing everything today, and MAN... What a night and day difference! I never imagined taking 20mph turns at 50+ would feel so fun and at the same time so safe! Body roll is virtually non existent now! Anyways, on to the pics!!

    Suspension sexiness....



    Installed billet LCA's...

    Ground control coils...

    Beaks tie bar, ASR subframe brace, and ASR 24mm sway bar...

    Group shot.....

    My favorite pic, looking all professional and shit....

    Gotta give a shoutout to RTR...

    Been a while since I updated this build thread. Well the car has been performing daily driving activities until my subie can take over, but I havent forgot about this build! Matter of fact, I already started to order parts for the build. Gone will be the mainly stock K24/K20 frankenstein motor (already got a buyer lined up as soon as the motor is pulled), and taking its place will be a built K24/K20 frankenstein. Was going back and forth on how I wanted the build to go and what power adder was I gonna go with. Was it All motor, was it turbo, which one?? Well I finally decided and the choice will quite literally BLOW you away, so to speak. Stay tuned.....

    So after measuring the pro's and con's of what power adder to go with, I finally decided on this....

    Jackson racing roots M62 Blower

    Decided on the blower because it fits my needs the best at what the car is being built for. Sure it won't have the top end or high HP numbers I could have gotten with a turbo, or the scream and the response of a N/A beast, but it will give me the most useable powerband, and that's what counts in road racing, well that and suspension work also. I will be sending it out to LHT motorsports in Florida where they will re-work the supercharger by adding a intercooler kit actually inside the blower along with a heat transfer kit. Those two mods alone will give me an extra 30-50whp. I'm shooting for 350ish range just with the blower and supporting mods. But on top of that, I will be adding in a 75 shot of nitrous for the times I decided to take it down the 1320. Blower+NO2+2300lbs should = 11's.
    Also picked up a 70mm throttle body....
