I have to be honest, the car runs beautifully, even with the cams. Power delivery is nice (for an N/A) and the few people that have driven the car comment on how smooth it runs. The headers & HFC made the biggest difference, even without a tune (at the time) I was grinning like a Cheshire Cat when I drove it home.

Yep, good recommendations on the brake mods, I will probably do the master cylinder brace, that's an easy one, and I may change the lines to SS next time I change the brake fluid.

I'm probably going to leave the wheels as they are unless I stumble upon a killer deal. The roads here in QC are terrible, and the WRX wheels (while not light) are pretty bombproof, and cheap.
Thanks for the in depth response! I have a hid kit now but will eventually do a retrofit however the more and more I hear of headers, the more I want
I have to agree on the Wrx wheels, I was considering those for a while but just like you said a killer deal on eneki's came around . Best of luck on your future mods man, keep it up!
Reide- since you are already low and pulled everywhere I would say go for it. Rots d-forces are also really nice too.

Not his car but all coilovers are pretty much the same, make a car real low/stiff. 18x10 +30 Rota SVN-R. I'd guess tires are 225/40 or 235/40.

Not sure what it is, but I like the silver OBS with a gloss black wheel on it. Having my stockers powder coated over the winter while the winter wheels are on and taking the OEM tires of to get replaced anyway.

Thinking three sets of wheels/tires should do it:

- OEM (soon to be black) with All Seasons for spring/fall
- Dedicated winters for the middle of winter
- Nice set of 18" summer wheels/tires with UHPS tires on it!

215/40/18 on those 18x10 SVNs I do not approve.

IMO, if you want lip, you won't find it with a Rota logo. The deepest lip that they are doing for our fitment is something weak like 2.5". The Kyowas that I want are only 18x9 and have a 3" lip while still being at +45.

If you'd consider XXR they are coming out with CCW Classic replicas that look sweet as well as a few other wheels with 3+ inch lips.

Lol didn't think my rotas were "small spoked". Or are you talking spokes that touch the lip?

My other choice would be white.
