Still waiting. Cobb tuning called me today they are done with the car so I'l waiting for my transporter to pick it up.

Just bought some used gold BBS wheels from chicago.

It has slicks on it so I need to find some tires now.

I'm happy with my 300 horses tho.

I believe everyone recommends big bear tire when it comes to mounting and balancing. http://bigbeartire.com/site/

never used them before but people seem to like this shop.

Answering this old question, Taking the lip off, raising the car up a little anyway when I got back home just in the front. I don't drive it too far on the daily and I'm not too worried about the snow. My old lowered 94 accord I used to have did fine

Big bear is worth it. They do all my corner-weighting and my alignments and got me a killer deal on my Volks. It is a drive but Marty and Jon are great to work with.

i 192% trust pillar's auto out in waukesha. they are fantastic and have one of the only flush mounted alignment racks in the area. yes, they can align your dumped, super slammed car.

they also are very friendly and run a tight ship. there are few shops i would actually trust and they are one of them. i keep a sticker from their shop on my car just because of it.

on another topic, I have a Defi boost gauge (stand alone) that I've bought a while ago for dirt cheap and never got a chance to install it.

Does anyone know a reliable shop where I can have the gauge installed?

I was planning a trip to P&L but I'm getting kinda lazy...

FYI, Big Bear is also one of the last places on Earth that can shave tires. Heluva deal if you flat-spot a set of new tires.

If your in the Milwaukee area, Big Bear is not very far away.... I would suggest them over anyone. A bunch of my friends go there and never had a complaint.
I loved my bridgestone blizzaks on my civic, but when I bought the STi they came with winter tires. I will have to look what kind they are some day...
