Thanks guys! Wheels are 189.5+34 wrapped in 225/40's. Fitment in the front is really tight with the dampening almost at full stiff. Fenders rolled all around. Gna go lower in the rear once I put the RCA's on. Would post more pics but dont know how to use photobucket on my phone lol

Yup. So the headunit went out while playing a CD just now. Probably just means the HU is on its way out, right?

How hard is it to change out the speakers on the door? On my last car I had to ghetto right spaces so the window could roll down, I amped the speakers so I didnt use the stock speaker wire connector things. Can you swap speakers with out rewiring?

Lol yes. Pull off the door panel, get some wire adapters (or solder to existing wiring), and get some speaker spacers..done.

I just changed my front speakers a couple days ago.. it is pretty simple. It was a little more difficult with the extra step of templating to install some dynamat type stuff, but it is pretty straightforward.

Be very careful prying off the armrest where the buttons are. The middle tab always wants to break off. If you get lucky and do not break off the plastic tab the first time, put a little white lithium grease on the metal clip attached to the plastic tab so that subsequent removals are easier.

It actually works fine without that tab though..

Here's my latest addition..





Tuned to the stage 1 - 87 octane map with stock intake.



Power is now immediate and smooth. Starts to really pull at 4k. I'm also noticing an increase in gas mileage. I will be tuning to 91 octane after this tank.

I know the AP dyno isn't 100% accurate but I thought it would be fun to do a few pulls in 3rd gear. My starting RPM was 2,000 and ending at 5,000. Results are definitely taken with a grain of salt, but they aren't too far off from other dynos done. The engine is now more 'alive' feeling. When you hit 3k it doesn't feel like it has to shift or that you are hurting it.

This> http://www.efilogics.com/dyno/graph....rgb1=000000255

Here's my AP results. All of my test runs were all in the same ballpark within 5hp/tq of eachother.

I was honestly considering it, great price. But I guess I forgot about it. I also keep telling myself to just save for a 13 SWP.

If it's not working (broken) it's on its way out, yes.

OEM headunit or aftermarket?

Check basics first like a fuse or bad connection. If it's neither then probably time for an upgrade

This was the original issue:
"Weirdest thing just began happening a couple of weeks ago. I'll be driving normally either to work or where ever and the speakers will randomly just shut off. A faint *THUD* noise comes from the speakers and the sound is cut off. Radio is still on and my i-pod player is still on. The only way to reset it is to turn the car off, and then back on. It'll happen every ~5 times I go somewhere and it's beginning to get incredibly frustrating. Anyone have any idea what it could be?

Edit: I don't listen to music at a high level."

And now the speakers shut off playing either CD or AM/FM. The HU stays on though...
