Your OZ's are at least different but I don't think they're quite baller status.

PS: If you guys have any questions about methanol I can do my best to answer them. I had great results on my old car using it.

Let's see...I put on the boost tubes, race pipe, and motor mount for the VIR event and that will have to carry me for a while.

About the most I have a possibility of right now is to get that stock grille off and get a badgeless one, if not it will be tinted by June.

My big deal right now is to get the Turbo seals replaced under warranty or the guy behind me at the red light won't be a happy one ;)

yo if you can get the turbo replaced you should be very happy! i got mine replaced it is a newly designed turbo. they changed the way the oil flows through it which allows the seals not to leak. the tech said its good for full tbe :) we'll see how my car holds up

I was going to get new tires but I'm going to wait now. I have 23,000 on the OEM tires and after the trip down and back with all the twisties in between, my tires will be done. What budget summer tire should I buy? I was hoping to keep it under $150 per tire. Looking to get 225/45/18's

I just ordered an exhaust for my car today.  Should have it in a day or two.

Cosmic, I have heard good results with the Nexxen line of tires that are pretty cheap.  Maybe the higher end ones could be a decent choice.

Which Hankooks?. I'm looking at the Hankook VENTUS V12 EVO K110. They are $124 each at Tires-Easy.com.

The Hankook Ventus S1 evo's are $105 each at TireRack.

The Sumitomo HTR Z III are $136 each at Tire Rack, all of these are max performance summer.

General Exclaim UHP are $110 with $50 rebate on four tires and are listed as Ultra performance(one step down). I have heard from a speed 6 owner that has these tires and he says they ride nice and straightline grip is good but the sidewalls are a little soft.

Falken FK-452 are $117 at Tires-Easy.com and got good ratings.

Nitto NT555 EXTREME are $121 Each at Tires-Easy.com
