Ace's to do before the meet
« on: May 30, 2011, 10:45:23 PM »
Before the meet I've got a few things I want to get done. Not necessarily in this order though.\

- Walbro Fuel pump
- Install MBC and tune for 15 psi
- 16x7 +25 XXR 522's with new direzza's, not sure on the tire size yet maybe a 215/50/16 though
- Fit rear JDM bumper and buy new Front (GTX/R) bumper
- Paint
- tint

I've got 4 1/2 months so I hope I can get most if not all done.

Haha Well I'm getting my fuel pump next week. then saving for a week and then ordering the wheels. Unless I find a bumper before then, I'll have to take that as it comes, they aren't easy to find and when one pops up I gotta nab it quick otherwise someone else will.

the GTX would work for me... the GTR's a bit over the top LOL does look like it would have good air flow though!

yeah, I like both of them really. The GTR's just awesome because of its rarity and how much it would flow for the IC.

had 150k on it. 110 with my grandma behind the wheel and then the rest with me. lol
but the actual reason why this one took a shit and the rest are fine is because I had an oil leak that blew back onto this for the longest time. over time it just deteriorated the rubber.

Don't blow it up before the meet, blow it up on the skyway. Is tradition.

haha I'd rather not, but if that happens I'll find the closest junkyard and grab another motor and toss it in in a random parking lot.

I've got the stock FPR which is normally what people use. I'm going to try to run a larger power wire tonight and see if that helps any.
