Toda oil pan didn't arrive on time. Stock pan had to get pressed out to not hit RRC oil pump.

Wow that is a very impressive mod list.
Very clever wheel setup, wider tires at front where the traction is and not vice versus (just for look).

Suspension is either 12 or 16 one way adjustable. Should be rebound only.

Was in a rush to put them on and didn't get time to do a shock dyno to see what it actually changes.

Spring rates are your choice and they will valve the shock to suit.

Does it show you when you're in VTEC range?
