Looks good, I see your car is sportshift Any problems with the extra power of the SC?

Not so far, although I would like to get a 5 Speed. Changing gears its a little slow but I dont mind. For now its good enough.

my godddd .. how did you get your bay soooo clean?!!!!!! Looks like you just rolled it out the factory .. SPOTLESS! :hug

Also I LOVE the coilovers. Tanabe recommends wrapping the threads with teflon tape, this preserves the thread so it doesnt get dirt in it and also prevents water, grease and rust. Another thing is the dust boots might have to be trimmed a little .. so lower it to the ground and make sure they dont extent too low. Tanabe also recommends putting a lube on the top of the shock where the boot touches to prevent them from causing friction when rubbing. (basically can rub off the paint, which then can prob. cause rusting)

Just need the Tanabe strut bars and sways and youll handle like a champp .. :hug

Don't forget that you'll need to change your ball joints soon......one of the many benifits of lowering a 5th gen on coil overs.....

Very nice :clap . Do you have a pic of the car on the ground so we can see the ride hight? Oh and do you have any HP#s yet because that is a little like the setup I am wanting.

Looks sweet. Hows it ride?

It rides great, Not bumpy at all. I can take fast corners now. Even go fast in straight aways. I think is a great setup.

I'll post more pics later

I have not taken her to the track yet. But before I do that I would like to set it up a little more. But I am guessing that 1/4 mile I can do maybe low 14's
