      Also i have to ask was it hard for them to roll the rears? They use a heat gun? I have to do the same with mine... And how much did they charge?

      I have to say man, your car is boss with the fine tuning, everytime i see your mod posts you do werk!

      Sadlyn no can't do waterfest this year... For mod purposes I can't do any long shows that are out of state.

      The shuttle was awesome! First time, and well... The last one too..

      As for the thread, thanks! I do try!

      On the rears: I helped the guy, I was holding and heating the surface, and he was rolling... It came out good!
      As for the pricee, just re read the post, its there! That's what the tech charged me... I dunno what's the regular price.

      When I mod, I try to do it good, or not at all...

      lookie, lookie at what i got??



      special thanks to the 2.5 Forum sponsor:

      INA Engineering

      not only did they answer my question, but they know, understand and what to help me with my project... great people!

      recommend em blindly.



      now, i'm only missing the pistons to start the real build... but i have to decide on the NA vs FI thing... lol. cause Naturally aspirated = high comp pistons (11:1) and FI will be lower comp pistons (8.5 or 9:1)... i'll choose whn the time comes.

      Only cool if you still turbo it and run high boost. Pre-detonation is good for the motor anyway!

      Ok, so updates?

      I have the amp, its a JL J2 250.1 and that's going to be dedicated to the sub, which is going to be a focal 25 A1, nominal power 200w, and max of 400W.

      The amp was sourced locally from a friend who parted the car, the sub I ordered today from amazon, and it should be here on friday.

      On thursday I should be receiving the sub enclosure by nik (ubber stealth audio)...

      Also, I ordered 100 ft of 12 AWG wire to re do the entire cables, and not use the factory stuff... I also got 4AWG wire for the amp-batter) and ground connections.... Additionally I ordered a sub woffer cable (monster) and 2 monster RCA 25' cables for the conections between the head unit and the amp (speakers).

      Well... Looks like tomorrow I'll be wrapping the exhaust in thermal wrap, and I'll do an oil change and tire rotation... And on thursday or friday I'll be re-doing all the wires of the sound system, and I'll install the sub+amp.

      Let's hope for a good week.
