      You know what you should do -drop a big turb in there and make some crazy hp and teach her to drive it.

      So most recently I replaced all the coilpacks because a few of them were throwing some codes and misfiring. Rather than keep hunting them down one at a time I just replaced all of them. While I was at it, I changed out the pads to some Hawk HPS pads courtesy of MJM Autohaus.







      So the next thing is suspension. She HHAATTTEEESSS the coilovers. So this week I am going to be getting some Neuspeed Sport springs with some Koni Orange's. That's the setup I have on my Scion xB and she loves it. So that's the next thing. Then wheels. I have to decide which wheels I want. I am for sure gonna get some 18's, just not sure which ones yet. Suggestions?

      Ah, D-Money beat me to it. Lol. Washed and waxed it yesterday. I put the Koni Oranges on it with some B&G springs. I think it came out nice. I'll post some pictures today.

      So here are some pictures of the suspension that I put on....I ended up going with the Koni STR.T's and the B&G Sport Springs. The car runs great with them. I also got every single mount, bump stop, and dust cover brand new from MJM Autohaus.

      I also got some Rotiform BLQ's from Wagen Wheels. I wrapped them with some Falken 235/45R18's from DiscountTireDirect.com. I love the setup and it looks really good. My girlfriend loves the ride quality. I would suggest this setup to anyone that wants a good ride without dropping the car like crazy.

      So onto the pictures!!!

      It had coils on it. These right here were on the car. Some B&G RS Line Coilovers. I am going to be putting them up for sale shortly. My girlfriend hated them, she wanted it to ride stock. She didn't like the stiffness of them.

      You and me both. Actually, my girlfriend loved them too. But in order to pull them off she had to be low. And she didn't want that. Plus, they were curbed up. I'm fixing them right now but I know she would have probably curbed them up some more after I was done. So it was easier to just get rid of them. I haven't gotten rid of them yet but hopefully soon they'll be sold.

      For springs and struts that actually sits very nicely. I am about to do the same thing for my wife. She hates my coilovers, so that is the set up I will be doing for sure. Looks fantastic.
