no lowering... i would like to, but no go with the wife...

i'm not expecting these tires to be a miracle, but from everything i've research on them, they're pretty damn amazing... i just wish tirerack picked up falken so they could be compared directly...

i'm thinking about painting them myself, but figured if someone wants the carbon caps it would work out...

not sure... if you get on wheeldude.com they have a list of what caps fit which wheels...

did some research and it looks like they're 2.66"/68mm in diameter...

more to update:

thule rack!



airbox mods: k&n drop-in filter... removed and internally sealed the snorkel resonator... sealed the interior silencer (i want to remove everything like SHG did, but i'm not sure if i'll actually get to it...)



alpine ipod headunit and install kit


all weather mats




no pics:

-piaa super silicone wipers (24/16) - love these wipers
-piaa intense white h4 headlight bulbs - waaaay whiter color and a bit brighter to boot



what's next:

-white rota caps are on the way... that'll clean up the wheel centers quite a bit...
-airbox-to-tb pipe... going to remove the crappy oem piece and fit a 2.5" pipe in it's place to smooth out the flow

talked to a friend who did some of the hardpipes on my ptgt, and he's making me a 2.5" 90* tight radius pipe to connect the airbox to the tb... he also teflon coats them to help ward off heat soak...

he's putting a prototype pipe together right now and he's going to send me some pics w/ measurements to make sure that it's going to work alright...

more to come.
