That is one beautiful car right there. Congrats on the new ride. When did you get it? How quickly did the modding begin?

I picked it up about 2.5 weeks ago...400 miles driving it home the first day

The tint appt was set for the next day and at the same time I decided to do the shield...the wheels went on after this last week just because I could not stand the noise the stockers make.

All the other parts were sitting here in anticipation. They would be on the car already, But I dont drive enough to get it thru the dang break in period.

Not even 800 on it yet.

By the time I get it to 1500 Ill have some coilovers, sway bars, sainless lines and pads all sitting here. Some time in mid to late april Im guessing...

I also plan to do a syms adjustable wing, Ravspec CF roof spoiler center and chargespeed skirts all around.

New set of wheels/tires on the car

Enkei RPF-1 17x8.5 et40 only 16lbs

With Falken 255/40/17 rt615's


Rears rubb a little bit on the outside edge over big bumps...Considering the suspension and alignment is completly stock thats pretty good. .25 of neg camber will fix it. More ics thiss weekend.

Much better choice with the smaller Enkeis, the Evos were downgrading it a bit.

Yes, its the perfect offset to make up for the added width.

(not a do you think a 40 offset is ok thread)

OK, so the new camber kits are in front and rear and no more rubbing

new alignment specs

2.4- front (maxed out)
2.5- rear (could go to 3.5)

0 toe all around

It never amazes me enough how much crap can be screwed up on these cars stock. I was use to seeing overtightened bolts and nuts on the downpipe and stuff, but never on the suspension...

So...Right side front camber bolt (stock one) way overtightened and stripped.

Like I said before..Just take off the crappy stuff and replace it with new.

Pics of car with wheels on the ground and camber to come tomm along with stripped bolt.

BTW: I repeat, completely stock suspension.
