      So I went to put on a set of new rotors that i've had for 2 years but brand new, just to find out they are the wrong ones. right diameter, wrong hub. 5x112 maybe. weak. thank you ECS. first and last time i ever order anything from there.

      Front suspension is on.

      was able to snag some nice SMC air line from work to use for vacuum line. came out pretty good.

      gonna start it tomorrow. straight pipe because my exhaust hasn't arrived yet.

      maybe first thing in the morning too. just for s*its and giggles.

      heres some iphone pics:

      Great build! Glad to see some positivity regarding the 5857 too, I'm using one for my build and most people seem to talk it down. Looks excellent so far though, in for the rest of the build

      If he is not using any other boost source to the wastegate, it would run shut all the time, which would blow his engine in no time.
