Good guys over there. They're good about replying to emails. I was having them look into a nice-looking reverse lockout ring for me.

Got the front windshield replaced and treated with some aqua repel stuff, along with the rear window. With $100 deductible it was $130 total. Not bad. Car feels new again! Water was hitting my windshield and streaking up to the roof as I drove at very low speeds. Awesome!

Was it that ultra-ever dry stuff? Jk

Although I was thinking about it, and the windshield would be a good place for that stuff...never have to use your wipers again!

$30 for Aquapel? You can buy a 12pk off of Amazon for $50 or so. It is good stuff though.

Ordered new depot headlights and did a projector retrofit
It was pretty easy. It's WAY better than stock

Just ordered some new kicks! Enkei's newest release: the BR7's. Matte grey is the color. Should be expecting them the beginning of March!



Oh and I'll be going wingless and installing my jdm hood scoop when I get back.

17x7.5 with .45 offset. Only a .03mm difference. Tire rack told me that there may be some slight rubbing issues but nothing serious.

That's nice, but I'm not going to take the time or effort to apply it myself, sooooo.... There are tons of other things I COULD do myself, but that's why I pay other people to do it right (*cough* Element Automotive *cough*).

It's working super awesome! Water balls up and cries with every swipe of my blade! haha

thanks. Made it in 2010.

I might need to up the size of the Turbo outlet... its 2.25" to 2.5" to intercooler. Cold side is 3" all the way

I tested the voltage divider i made for my MAF with compressed air. The blower nozzle had maybe 1/8" outlet and and I blew DIRECTLY onto the MAF wires... multimeter read (double checked the ECU too) only like 4.4v. Car sees maybe 4.6V at wastegate boost (15-18psi).

I'd think its flowing quite a bit of air if the Turbo beats direct airflow from my air compressor O_o. Imagine the hot side now

I calculated the velocity at one point but I forget. Maybe ill chime in later after I do it again
