Default Springs installed... Anyone want to Help?

So anyone want to give me a hand installing my H&R Springs(SOMEONE who actually knows somewhat, what they are doing)... I installed the JDM Billstiens like 3 weeks ago and just should of waited for the springs but wanted to see what the drop was with the JDM Etuned Springs(Not much, like 1/4inch drop). I do have air compressor and air tools or use your garage but just too lazy and Not motivated to do this by myself. Still have to go rent a spring compressor... Get ya'll 12pack and $20 for gas.

Ill help you, spring/strut installs are a piece of cake. It goes much much faster with two people though (try installing 4 new struts in a dorm room parking lot..in the snow..yeah...)

Don't worry about the compressor, I work at Shucks/O'Reillys Ill just borrow ours. I'm taking my turbo leg down to PIA tomorrow, gonna be with my dad so I can't do it then. Saturday i'm at Olympus, but Sunday I'm free all day (if my manager doesn't pull a fast one on me).

I can come down then and help you if you want. Generally it takes me about 45-60 minutes per strut (I don't know if that's slow or fast, but that's my time), because I make sure to get everything set up right. And that's pulling the old strut out, taking the old springs out, replacing the springs, putting the top hat on and adjusting it, and re-installing everything. I'll pm you my number, give me a call.

p.s. I like rolling rock

Yeah i was going to wait to get pics with my new Gold Rota Tarmac2 wheels on and also the Springs do need to settle in and will be like a good 1/2 lower once they break in within 1000miles H&R said. Crappy cell pics for now...



Before:


After: Still needs to settle a good 1/2" or so...

I want to keep Auto since i have a really left knee from baseball over 14years so Clutch it out of my head for option. I really do like the Regular Unleaded Gas fill ups over Premo Turbo fill ups for money wise. And am not in baller status so budget is there for me...Thinking i might be able to tackle a swap since I have done engine swap before in my 93 TT Supra that had a JDM TT and i switch everything back to a USDM motor/Tranny in my garage but i dont think i want to do any rebuilding or major engine work myself. What is some options i should think or go with on my LGT stayin Auto?

Guess you do need that sweet hood scoop.

I'd say do a swap and make that hood scoop useful then.

My intake was based off the Super Rare Gravelsport Top Mount Intake built for these 2.5L NA Engine back in 2001 was the 1st testings, Most everyone has never seen or herd of the Intake. To keep it short for now... Cant find the orginal Thread on SLI but guy put down 14whp with the intake setup bone stock, showed 2hp different in OEM to K&N drop in nothing huge. OEM pipe is 2.1" to the Stock Box, our piping is 3.2" better flow and the ribbs? Yes it was Tested from hardpipe to Ribbed, the High Temp Intake Ribbed actually showed more turbulance creating more HP over the smoothed hardpipe for a NA motor(Dyno proven with 3pull each) A total of 35kits made and only like 15 known in the US selling for $269plus shipping. Rain a issue?, Dont ask cause everyone seams too... Yes and No though... OEM Paper filter yes it will turn into sloppy spung and will fall part. K&N aftermarket filters... No, Been tested in 3 different down pours on the freeway and city each with a total of 30min drives each and the last guy i talked too has had his intake on for 3 years now with not 1 single problem in every weather it was thrown at him.

Agian this for guys who love their NA motors and want to stay NA, Am I 1 of them? Yes and No... That is why i made the thread that Saggio found to debate on if i want to Swap out or Not. I love being NA but then love being Boosted. Each one has its own Pros and Cons.

So DONT Flame with the Hood Scoop please when i do have use for the scoop, in debate on a turbo swap and NOT just for looks on my LGT.

And OP, when you respond with something like this you have to expect a little bite in return. Had you just posted pictures and explained WHY you have what you have that would have been the end. Being overly defensive when confronted is a sign of weakness and insecurity on the interwebs. Relax and enjoy next time.
