Just putting it out for local advise before I go hunting all over the web or the site.

Oh and hello from Brazil guys. Now that my official 5 months of being on a leash is over, when I get back I'm defently going to make a meet up once again.
you can go to advance auto parts main store near 610 and 290. they'll paint match it there and put into a spray can the same day. thats what i used for my side skirts and my fog covers.

Aww thanks...I realy wanted something to paint match for other uses. Might have a few other little projects to come.

I'm allso going to be doing a larger TMIC and turbo upgrade soon. So will be looking for a good local tuner. Though ordering all parts to install for that upgrade over the next few months. Can we say a nice litttle garage day project for a meet. To boot I'll be swapping from my apartment to a house over the summer so can finaly do my own mods easly in a garage.

I can do alignments to anyone's specs & will do it w/ driver in the car. As far as recommendations on what angles to run I have not had too much time to experiment, but will do w/e you want.

THe bad part about houston and it's pot holes (poor Scotty out there in the stix is worse) is it messes up your balance and alignments so easly. I'm probly about do for a rotation. Going to be ordering my springs and sway bars soon. So will probly be needing an alignment all so. Love these paychecks when I get stuck down here in Brazil, specialy when I'm stuck on shore at are shop.....what hapens in Brazil stays in Brazil right?

Hopeing to be home by end of the month so I'll be looking for a tuner shortly after that. Imight get an OTS Stage 3.52 AP map for now, so I can drive it to who ever will do my tune. Kinda want to half do a dyno right now with the Stage 2 map and TBE/CAI only mods to see what the diffrence will be from the step up. Who does dyno's in houston?

In about a month or two I'll be in an house with all my tools in the garage so if you need help with any other work I'll have my driveway/garage open for you. I'll be moveing off of 529 and 6 so just down the road from your shop. Finaly getting my butt out of the JV area.

i would definitely be interested, but not for my subi since my alignment isn't all that bad right now. My gf's toyota corolla is in need of alignment bad though. Let me know if you be be able to do hers according to factory spec. Let me know

Cairparinhas are the bomb...well until you wake up the next day.

I'm actulay bring a bottle of two back this trip of there rum to show a few folks this drinkw hen I get back. They do tend to creep up on you if your not carefull.


Oh I'll check on Jtran, was trying to remember who the shop was that has been used. Yah I would like to get the stage II base lines so that I know how much gain I'll be getting from current set up to the almost final pro-tune stage III. Than I"ll be happy for a while.

my wife is a brazilian car chick so i know the country (and the drinks) really well. her alltime favorite idol is ayrton senna and someday when my MR2 kicks the bucket she wants an NSX as our "fun car" since senna had input on the car's design.

I'd like to try to get out this tomorrow, but my car's not acting right. I went to drive my '02 WRX downtown Sat evening, and it was running very rough. Within a minute the CEL started blinking fast, then stopped blinking and stayed off, but the car was still running very rough so I went home and switched cars. It was 100% fine when I parked it Friday night. I now see P0303 & P0304 pending error codes (miss-fire on cyl 3 & 4 respectively) and it still idles very rough. Any ideas what could have failed so abruptly and how I might diagnose this before I try to head out again?
