      Tried to install EVOM CAI, but failed (2nd try). Apparently, EVOM didn't consider that the '09 car don't have MAF. Therefore, I tried to install a rubber hose where that MAF supposed to go, annnnnd the result was disappointing.
      I think I might do away with CAI

      took some pics of the wire-less (clean) engine bay.

      i hid all the injector wires.
      Extended the TB sensor, and its vacuum line, and hid it away.
      extended the sensor on the head, cause it too didnt reach.

      the result!!!

      It can get small enough to put in the rain tray... We were gonna do it last year but I ran into those valve cover and limp mode bs, so after tearing open the entire harness looking for a tore or broken wire I decided those types of problems are nothing I want a part of so there will be no harness lengthening for me till I get the s13 running next year.

      Upgraded to an RCD310 and it looks SO much better. Why dont these cars come with that radio from the factory, really changes the look of the interior IMHO

      switched the spacers from the front (15mm) to the back. The back (20mm) took them out. No more rubbing in the back. Will get 7mm spacers for the front.
      Replaced front right wheel (bent from the potholes) with a new one.

      Yeah I will do a review probably at the beging of next week it is still snowing up here so the roads dont really allow for any kind of "testing". But I was able to do a couple of pulls in second and all the car wanted to was to go.
