Of course, 165k on her now. Dealing with a possible crank position sensor issue or relay 428 issue as the car randomly likes to almost completely shut off then turn back on instantly and drive fine. It happens maybe once everyday or 2.

Other than that, might as well do a quick update.

Sold the miro 111s and got some new wheels, waiting on adapters and tires. Going with nittos again. Wasn't a big fan of the achilles.


Retrofits that should be here soon


Also bought a pioneer double din with android auto, will be installing that shortly as well.

Parted out the parts gli almost completely. Still trying to sell the 6 speed swap though.



Will be attending sowhat in Helen GA this year. Have a lot of smaller upgrades to make to the car to prepare it for a 14 hour journey. Ss brake lines, sway bars, etc. Will update shortly once I get some of the new stuff installed.

Alphards and hids in. Need to figure out why there's a small amount of play in my steering. Most noticable on the highway. I have to move the wheel about a half inch in each direction to start getting the wheel to turn. Doesn't seem to be control arms or tie rods.

Thanks buddy. Haha it should convince you to start buying! But yes zach did the retrofits. They came out very nice. Just make sure that you send in a set of headlights with adjusters that work perfectly and pre-align the headlights, it will make everything so much easier.

I've been doing a lot of sowo prep as of recent. Fixed my rear wheel fitment. Headunit is in, very suprised at how much the headunit opened up the bass and overall sound quality. Also swapped in a new set of recaros with a fresh seat cushion. A lot more comfortable then the torn drivers one with a non existent bolster.

Still have to:
Replace mirror assemblies
Claybar, polish, wax
Touch up rear fenders
Get front end resprayed
Do ball joints and tierods
Replace doorcards
Swap trunks
Tighten up steering column

Made it to sowo and back without any major issues. Just completed an 8 hour round trip as well, and my a/c went. Need to check and see if it's engaging. Hopefully a leak drained the system.

Here's how the car sits now. Swapped out a trunk for one without a spoiler. Took apart the vu4 manifold thinking that it was the cause of issus. It was fine, however both reed valves in the compressors were broken. Found a guy who was able to make new reed valves for me so that was an easy fix. Also repainted my rubstrip and front lip.

Sad that photobucket killed most of your pictures, but I can say that the ones you still have up make me very jealous. I've been thinking more and more about air and I think Pssst might've switched my choice to Airlift's 3P management.

I think I just need to relog in. I'm currently posting pics from Tapatalk so I shouldn't have that issue. I'll try to refresh my photobucket pics.
Isn't that the equivalent of elevel? I will get elevel for my next car. What made you prefer 3p?

Put on trunk without spoiler.

Painted my reiger rear window spoiler with paints scratch products. Extremely impressed with how these came out considering it was done with a spraycan. Just did some wet sabding, compounding, and polishing. Attached with the silicone they supplied and it did not hold for shit. Now need to scrape it out to remount the spoiler with some 3m stuff.

To do:
Remount spoiler
Door card swap
Replace tail light bulb
Exterior detail
Steam clean engine bay
Wetsand repainted fender edge
Swap in new bulb
Re-aim headlights
Fix exhaust leak
New interior led lighting
Figure out why a/c stopped working

Yeah it is except you have 5 presets instead of only 3 which is nice. Still in the research phase though.

The provided silicon failed miserably to hold the spoiler on. Luckily it fell off when my car was sitting in the parking lot. Tried an adhesive, e6000. It has held but it doesn't hold well when heated by direct sunlight. I have now used silicone to seal it from the outside and it has held in place.who would've thought it would be so tough to mount a rear window spoiler. There's just no good mounting points on it at all.

Recently changed the oil and realized my transmission is leaking as well as power steering (it has been for a while). My transmission was almost empty. I refilled and cleaned it up, will monitor for leaks. Also cleaned the power steering pump and will monitor as well.

Downpipe is also leaking pretty bad. Should out to 42 draft designs for the warranty and shipping one out to me in a day. Great customer service right there. Can't wait to get this pig in so my car doesn't sound like shit anymore.

Also installed a hotckis under axle front sway thinking it would allow me to air out. Wrong. It also put a lot of pressure on the transmission. Come to find, they have a different design for 5 and 6 speeds, so this 5 speed hotckis front sway is for sale if anyone is interested. I'm going to remove it and install an over axle sway with larger loops as a buddy has had luck with his h&r over axle. With the hotckis installed, the car felt extremely planted. Moreso than when i had the stock sway and coils. What a difference from running no sway.
Also did the brakes on my buddy's camaro. Definitely recommend brake motive as they have held up great on my car and same with his.

Pulled the subframe again last night. Hotckis is out, JOM with extended loops is in. I'll be putting this back in tonight. Hopefully I can air out.
