After debating whether or not to buy a local gsx, I decided to go for it.

Mod list is as follows:
Turbonetics 50 trim
Turbonetics cast manifold
Greddy FMIC
Speed density
Minor trans rebuild with double synchro 1-2
HKS 272s
Rebuilt head
5 bolt o2 housing
AEM Wideband
ECMLINK V3
Front and rear 2GB conversion (headlights are still 2ga though :notgood: so the bumper fits weird until I get new ones)
Ebay projectors (the light pattern doesn't seem that bad actually with HIDs)
17x7.5 gramlights with 245/45/17 tires

Got it last Thursday technically, but it got a flat on the way to my house when he was delivering it :fp:
Here it is that night

So, we decided that he would buy a new tire for it but I didn't feel comfortable putting just one new tire on an awd, so I decided to buy two...or four :-( The lady at firestone did her job well, I bought 4 new tires with road hazard warranty and a lifetime alignment (which I had on my old car).
245/45/17 doesn't seem to fit very well...

So, added 3mm spacers and solved that problem :mrgreen:
Finally get it home after the whole tire fiasco and begin the work.

Annnndddd, no after, not yet anyways. Hopefully I will finish the interior Tuesday. I forgot to take pictures of the HID wiring but it was pretty bad. It was open turbo so I bought a 4" intake and filter for it, cleaned up the HID wiring and concealed the ballasts better. The front bumper was pretty much hanging there so I took it off and put all of the bolts in the headlights.
