Stock back in the day.
A mild spring drop, Mugen grill, Mugen visors, tint.



Some new shoes found there way on
Enkei RPF Type RC in 18x8.5+38



Followed immediately by some coil over's at that time,
Tanabe Sustec pro.
Then some Euro R lips, Fujitsubo r exhaust and yellow foggies.




How the bay looked around then.



Bring in K-Pro ECU


Some interior pics




Drove around for a while like that, maybe a year and a half.
Then i needed new suspension as one was leaking.
In went all the Spoon goodies at that point.

Some current-ish pics of how things changed over the last year.

BOOOOOOSSSSTTTTTT








Then some more wheels, SSR Type C in 17x8+35





And that's how it sit's today, Still have quite a few things to handle with the build over the next few months.

A new clutch, new exhaust, bbk, fit up the IMT1 inlet and TB, K20 oil pump, methanol +10psi boost and a re-tune

Also looking into a set of decent cams, Our K24A3 cams are weaker than your K24A2 cams, Considering Drag cartel DIC's at present.
For now, enjoy!

I still have those Enkei's. Can't really let myself part with them just yet.
I just throw different wheels on as i please.

Now considering a set of 17x9+35 Desmond regamaster's which a buddy has FS too.

Becoming a wheel whore....

Great build. So you haven't installed the new inlet yet, right? Make sure you let us know how it performs.

No not yet, I ordered one the same day the thread popped up on here about them, for some reason that both Troy and I cannot figure out that first one went missing in USPS somewhere at JFK airport.

Troy shon through like a champ and sent another one out. Fk me their work is insane quality!
Hence the delay there, I think clutch should be done before the inlet though.

:drool1: your suspension...awesome!
Spine jarring. But it will last a longgggg time. Especially when you drive the car 365 days a year.
