      Hey man since you're pretty much in my area I thought I would ask you about this. How do you go about passing smog with all those mods? I'm still pretty stock and just passed inspection a couple of months ago, but I have a couple of parts sitting in the garage waiting to be installed so I'm kinda worried for the future haha.

      I'm a DIY person, so I say go for it yourself. However, if you're not familiar with doing a timing belt job, you will either need to become familiar with this or have someone else do the cam gear install. Although, if you're running stock cams, then you'll pretty much be installing them for looks.

      The intake manifold, motor mounts, sway bars, radiator, and fans should be pretty simple to do yourself. The motor mounts will probably give you the biggest problem.

      But if you don't have the time, tools, knowledge, desire, etc., then have someone else do it. I'm just not a big fan of other people touching my car, especially if they don't know the platform. I've done everything to my car.

      All of my drivetrain modifications have been awesome. The clutch setup is awesome and feels like it'll hold a lot (haven't tracked it yet), the short shifter is great along with the Symborski kit and underhood brass bushings, and the solid motor mounts have made wheel hop go away and the motor doesn't move at all. I'd say all of these have made the most difference.

      And pretty much all of the suspension modifications have been a great help as well.

      When I bought the car, a lot of it was in sad shape, so most of the upgrading was necessary. But it seems the suspension and drivetrain have made the most noticeable difference, along with getting the tune on.

      All in all, this pretty much follows the way to upgrade - get all your supporting mods done before you go for the big stuff (engine, turbo, manifolds, etc.).



      Sorry, I had to split it up in 2 posts because of too many characters.

      Thanks for the compliment.

      Best bang for my buck - well, my car came with the turbo, so I can't say that was it, but it's a nice upgrade.

      Noticeable differences came from ECMlink coupled with a wideband (Innovate LC-1) and a MAP sensor (AEM 5 bar). Putting a tune on the car really woke it up.

      The Dakota digital fan controller coupled with the Flex-a-lite fans has been another great mod as well, allowing me to keep my temps around 180-190 all the time. I haven't ran this car on a road course yet, so I can't vouch for the setup there.

      It was a custom front bumper, thank you! Its not for sale to the public unfortunately. I wanted it to be but I dont have time to find a market and manage a whole development project to make/sell them.
