Not too much of an update here. I finally wrapped up the evo steering wheel install and am so happy with how it turned out with the oem airbag cover! I was down with covid for a few weeks, but I was able to get the ExtremePSI solid shifter base bushing kit installed which made a world of a difference combined with their solid cable bushing kit and oem weighted knob. This is by far the best feeling shifter I've had in a dsm. I also got ambitious yesterday and installed the Boosted Fab crossmember. Fit like a glove and looks great! Can't wait to get his fender braces and motor mounts installed next. Other than that I'm just waiting on availability to open up at the local shop to get these Volk toe arms installed and the alignment wrapped up. I'd like to have the RPF1s on and Evo Recaros in the car yet this season.

How long ago did you order the Boosted Fab part? I have the same one sitting here and the design appears a tad different.

Like a week or two maybe? Mine came powdercoated with his logo welded on the front bracket. Still waiting on him to finish building the fender braces as I spec'd chromoly instead of DOM.

Got the car out for a cruise through horse country last night. Lexington has some beautiful driving roads around it. Unfortunately I didn't stop to get any pictures until I got back...I'll have to make an effort to get some professional ones done after paint and bodywork.

There's some bumps and bruises on the fenders and doors. It's also missing some clips on the driver's side door molding. It's a solid 5ft car though haha
Gotcha. I feel the same, a solid 10fter haha. Door dings for me. 😩

I believe I have the same hood on my car, not sure if it's carbonetics or not, but the hood does hit the timing belt cover a little. Previous owner cut the hood a smidge to make it clear.
Yea they fixed that with the v2.

Well today was a big day for parts! Even with the car half-heartedly posted for sale I decided I was ready to change up the engine bay a bit and ordered the following:

  • Raven Fab stainless water pipe
  • Purple Tial Q bov and MVS wastegate
  • Ticon Industries materials order so a local welder can fab me a titanium UICP and burn it purple
  • Vibrant HD clamp that will be welded to the throttle body so I won't need a separate tb elbow or coupler
  • BSFab titanium upper radiator pipe in purple
  • New oem oil dipstick
  • JMFab catch can
  • FuelLab purple AFPR to replace the ugly red Aeromotive one
