      The rear isn't all that hard. You need lots of steam and patience.

      Yeah that's what I heard. It just takes a while. I also had to get it done fast because I was leaving for VA the week after.

      Do you use a regular steamer? Like a Stanley Steamer...steamer lol. It is probably cheaper to rent one of those.

      Lol well that makes sense then. Maybe after I get this beast paid off I'll do a color change. Matte is definitely a first choice but who knows.

      Decided to have a little fun and floor it on some empty highway yesterday and noticed @ 3500rpm I'm getting this nasty surge of power... honestly sounds like vtec kicking in lmao

      ..What sucks is I cant do anything about it right now. I'd hate to say Im going to just have to drive like a normal person so it doesnt get worse.

      I'm going to search so dont even say it but anyone have some suggestions on what it is?

      No matter the gear. As soon as I get over the 3300-3500 WOT mark it goes nuts. It feels rough and I'll get this surge of power for a split second and then goes back to like nothing happened. Like I said it honestly feels like Vtec kicks in and cuts out if youve ever experienced some good ol' Vtec. I need to get to work so I didnt keep testing/pushing the theory but it happened a few times. Im going to flash it back to stock run it for a second and then go back to stage 2 (just for good measure/give it a fresh start). Since it happened around the same rpms everytime it seems like it has to do with the pressure or even ecu in that rpm range. IDK. Hopefully a hose is just fcked up.... maybe its a wastegate issue...meh then I would notice it in the psi and that seems pretty normal.

      Nuespeed p-flo. Think that can cause a surge like that?

      Looking into a new one just cant decide.

      I would not say that it causes a surge, but the p flow does make a weird noise when you are under a heavy load.

      Oh yeah I know that. Been dealing with that forever. Thing makes all kinds of retarded sounds. Im talking about so much you feel the car pull a little bit harder. Which makes me think im Overboosting or constantly underboosting lol

      It's called a turbo. Embrace it.

      Unless there are any really unusual sounds, I really think it's turbo lag catching up.

      Wait... My 2.0t doesn't have the same engine as an R32?

      I'm gonna floor in on the way home from drill tonight. Maybe it'll break down and I won't have to show up tomorrow lol. I know the cars temper and something seems up.

      On the bright side, might get my rotors on before Sunday.

      Bought this bad boy today. Washed and waxed in record time. Its not the PERFECT way to wax seeing how you'll never get the tight spots/details but it did a bangin job in the 40-60 it took to wash, dry, and wax.

      It's cleaner in photos, needs some body work lol. Such an expensive hobby we have.

      I am trying to save some cash for Rotiform TMBs. I actually got a price quote today. I'm looking at $4300 So with that said I might be running something else until next year.

      I feel like wheels are the BIG step I'm missing having a BMP. The black just doesn't stand out enough. Clean as sht but I always feel like it's missing something. lol.

      Spending that much money is to retarded but those are definitely the wheels it'd happen with..

      Thanks! The wheels hunt blows. It's either wait, spend the show season on the Flat Fives, and save for next year or go broke for the year with a big smile on my face lol.

      Four car accident on the highway down to PA. Dudes in front of me slammed on their brakes causing everybody else to do it even faster and i was left braking and swerving at the end. If I didnt swerve...It would have easily been totaled and we would be in the hospital right now. I love the stupidity of others. Everybody have a bangin time at Cult Classic

      I would call tmtuning.com and ask for a part number for the bumper. They are overseas so it would be a good chance at finding an answer... Sorry to see the damage. Thank god its repairable and your alive. Good luck. Love the car.

      Thanks man. TMtuning was the only place I could think of also. Its worth a try right. I have to find out how what the insurance company and body shop say about getting these parts. This could work in my favor ya know.

      I'm going to give the body shop all euro part numbers. Leave really fast and hope I don't get a phone call ten minutes later. I do have other body issues that look like the accident caused them, so thats a good thing I guess.
