since you already did most of the exterior i say finish the rest and then interior and suspention and leave the sc till the end , i did the maggie before the suspention and now my car has bad traction with the 22s ,i really don't care since i'm not into racing and drifting is more fun for me , you can also do the headers +tune and you'll get a good gain on hp and tq and the cost will be minimal compared to the sc and after you're done with everything you slap on a nice SLP TVS 2300 sc and burn some serious rubber

Thats what I was going to do now and I dont disagree there is just a member on here whos switching out his tvs 2300 for a pro charger and he live about 20 minutes from me and he could install and everything, its one of those things that is like i know I should wait but its SUCH a killer deal

But I rather get these two big projects out of the way and done before my rims get here so i can truly be satisfied for a few seconds and then start thinking about what my next mod is hahahahha

I love to build up the suspense and the audio is no secret, I have the system specs on my journal the only thing that is a secret right now is the custom work I am having done to the trunk floor

Pierre No kidding haha I ordered my Rims from Carid the day before I bought the car and it has been a 2 and a half month wait however they will be here on the 15 of february so it will finally just set the car off to the point where the exterior will be just about perfect to how i want it the only thing im changing is theyre going to be matte black wheels to go with the white and matte theme

Yea he finally got it to work he just had to draw out the process a couple of days haha they do look amazing though, However I had them sent to the shop directly so they didnt have an exact color match as you can tell pierre already messaged me and wanted to make sure I knew haha, but the car is going into the shop for a week to get some work done and he has to respray the whole car so hes going to fade them then

Yes, I did notice that . The front bumper is off color for the rest of the car, but it's the same as the side skirts. It should be too hard to take them off and respray just the side skirts and front bumper again. It would certainly cost less than respraying the whole car, LOL. That will cost an ass-ton. I sent my spoiler directly to the shop without my car to get painted, so who knows how well the spoiler will match. We'll see, as it may be off a ton. If it is, I'll have no choice but to have them repaint it.

Yea i totally understand but im getting Custom Functional Fender Vents in all o4 quarter pannels so hes goig to have to respray all of them anyways hahaha, so thats why he has to respray most of the car, so hes going to get them to match and fade them all together so they fit perfectly you know??? and thats my last major exterior mod other than my spoiler so it should work out great
