      NJMP. They're everywhere.

      Just don't remove your sway bars, delete power steering, remove rebars, and downgrade brakes like most of the allmotor clique to redce weight in hopes of gaining internet stardom. It's fine for going in a straight line, but wont work so well on the track.

      welcome to the layer cake

      dont have much of a update but I got KW V1 suspension for the car and I changed the rear main seal since it started leaking.



      list of things to do before the 2012:


      install suspension
      change ignition switch
      put back tranny once I receive some parts for it. (est. late - NOV)
      update the firmware in the MS3X.
      install an iac to get the car to idle smoothly.
      a header.

      Great build ! I have a similar setup of transmission and axle is my corrado, I was wondering if you could tell me how much clearance you have between the cup an the axle on the driver side. Mine as got really limited clearance maybe . I have been running it without issues up to now but I'm thinking of getting harder front crossbar bushing and a harder trans mount to prevent the axle from touching the top part of the cup in harsh conditions. I'm currently running WRD engine mounts inserts.

      im using a bfi mounts all around, they aren't an issue now but once i get everything on the road then I can make a better judgement. but they are stiffer then my vf mounts that I have in my daily mk3.
