  1. Thanks mate looking forward to what’s next, yeah the kit is from KMAK pretty happy with the quality and fitment one small air bubble in the skirts that chipped away where they hadn’t pushed the glass into the corner of the mold but a easy fix with a bit of filler, most the mounting holes lined up with the oem guard liner screws with the exception of a few extras I drilled out underneath also one on the pod corner to pull the gap in could have used a adhesive but wanted a solid fit (:
  2. So a lot has happen since my last post from upgrading parts blowing and replacing the head gasket fitting a new link g4x ecu and all the sensors with a flex fuel tune to come I look forward to posting more on my build progress here ! First off I decided to give the car a run at my local drag strip on an open test and tune ran great for the most part with a best time of 13.3sec 1/4mile and a 2.2sec 60footer I was getting a lot of axle tramp and not a lot of grip, after many passes I noticed my gear stick slightly on the right side and hitting my park brake I suspected engine/tranny mounts were shot. I attempted to adjust the coil overs and found they were seized in position I have taken all corners apart completely and rebuilt my coilovers along with replacing the old crusty LCA’s with adjustable Hardrace parts also upgraded my brakes to a slotted style rotor and gave my callipers a fresh coat of paint still need a wheel alignment but wow this made a difference in handling and the all round feel on road. Done some research on here about axle tramp and here’s something that worked for me, I ordered some rear subframe collars from gkteck and after fitting them the rear end was tight and the tramp issues I had under hard acceleration/launching were pretty much non existent. So I had planned on upgrading my ecu for a while and ended up pulling the trigger, I put in my order along with all my sensors that I required for the setup as well as running a flex fuel tune 98/E85 blend along with a 24tooth trigger sprocket to help with rpm readings, all was going well but upon a leak down test and running the car the company I had gone with and myself had realised white smoke we checked the cylinders and found cyl 6 had a possible head gasket leak with both oil and coolant entering the cylinder.. oh no 🤦‍♂️ I ended up trying to save a bit of money as I had just invested into the computer and other parts so I decided to setup a spot in the garage and get to pulling the head off this was a great experience learnt a lot about my motor and got to clean up slot of the engine bay along the way ! When I removed the head it was a perfect time to change the engine mounts which I found completely to disconnected to the chassis lol 😅 I replaced the engine mounts with hardrace and also used a solid gkteck transmission mount. I went with a Gates timing belt kit, genuine water pump and thermostat and also decided to replace my a/c compressor as the pulley was seizing up and making a lot of noise. probably a lot I missed but just received the new crank pulley today and should be able to finish the assembly this week and be able to take it for it’s new tune ! Can’t wait to find out what she makes and to go for a drive thanks for reading if you made it this far. edit: Also fitted some type M skirts and modified a wrx front lip to suit the gtst front bar still need to get skirts painted.
  3. Awesome build ! Are you making that power with stock internals on e85 ? how did it go on 98 with 18psi tune ?
  4. I will do a build thread when i get home from work ?? Do i just make a new topic for this or is there a Specific location to post it ?
