    Direzza Star Specs are better, but at $89 a tire, you can't beat the price of the Hankooks. My only complaint is that the sidewalls are a bit "squishy." But the tires will hold long past that squishy feel.

    Thanks for the info. Where can you find them for $89/tire? I found them on TireRack but not for that cheap. They do have a MIR for $80 tho. I already have a set but someone else is looking for a set.

    I think it was a special on TireRack for a short time. IIIRC I got all four for ~$400 shipped to my door.

    The Time crunch as begun! Tonight I am installing the fuel pump; I'm going to attempt the injectors on Wednesday. That leaves the Turbo install for the weekend. CAI and 3-port are an easy install, so I'll do those whenever.

    I don't expect my clutch to hold, so I'll be installing a clutch at some point soon. I'm just hoping that my clutch will hold through the tune.

    I'll be hitting 100K miles very soon (currently at 99.5K miles)... on the OE clutch!! Then there will be the timing belt/water pump...

    The clutch may hold more than you think it will, provided you don't abuse it, and it's not already slipping. I was able to hold quite a bit of power on the stocker with my hybrid, until I really got after the aggressive tuning (north of 375hp).

    However, mine had about 55k on it, or so..

    Fuel pump is in!

    The back is all torn out! All I can say is -- Thank god I have a wagon



    The fuel pump assy



    The pump is out! I used up most of my fuel (fuel light was on) to keep it as clean as possible



    Stock fuel pump assy.




    The Walbro pump is easily larger, but....



    The stock fuel filter is much larger



    The new Walbro mounted on the assembly:
