    Tomorrow will be the addition of Tein Super street coilovers, Invidia V3 down pipe, invidia q300 cat back and a WTF tuning stage 2 tune..

    The car has 70,075 it is completely stock and pretty well cared for. When I picked it up I noticed a few things..

    Oil leaks:
    Passenger side top cam gear oil seal
    Oil pan gasket
    Passenger side valve cover

    Belt Squeel:
    PS belt glazed

    Rear strut clunk:
    Bad rear struts

    Front strut pop:
    Top hat bearings

    Brake noise:
    Grooved front rotors and bad pads
    Grooved rear rotors and bad pads

    The auction company got this car from a certified wholesaler so it has a 60 day warranty. Since I am am authorized repair facility I purchased the following parts on them..

    Timing belt kit
    Oem rear struts
    Group n top hats (all 4)
    Valve cover gaskets
    Spark plug tube gaskets
    Drive belts
    Brembo brake pads front
    Brembo brake pads rear
    Brembo brake rotors front
    Brembo brake rotors rear
    Oil pan is just a sealant.

    So I have been busy currently..

    Update: Found the timing belt to be installed correctly but factory defect, when the motor was cold the car would run fine, while it warmed up the timing belt would stretch and act like it was a tooth off. Replaced the timing belt yet again and car runs fine.

    Installed the Invidia V3, and Q300 car is ridiculously quiet, not sure if I will enjoy this yet or not.

    Installed Tein Super Street Coilovers and did yet ANOTHER alignment to find the power steering rack is puking oil out EVERYWHERE.. Replacing the lines and rack when I get back home and doing ANOTHER alignment.

    Deciding currently on rollers... Might be ordering a set of 18x10 rota svn.

    Looks nice!
    I just put a Nameless axle back on my 09 with 4" mufflers and it's a lot louder than I thought it would be. It sounds good at idle and howls at WOT with no drone at free way speeds. Good quality work, but I had to wait about a month for it because they ran out of material.
