really a mirror image? wow i dont know too many other people that have the JDM 2.0l block in their car. but as fas the tranny goes.. i have an early 02, about half way through the model year it got a slightly stronger tranny.. sadly mine is not the case.. but either way now mine holds just fine.
Oh i see, you and my buddy jason sub are basically mirror images of one another after that turbo upgrade gets put in. Well except for the fact that his car is silver, and for some insanly strange reason his stock 5 spd tranny has held up since the car was made. His brother just blew up 1st gear.
I will note that ever since he put his turbo in, its been a big pain to try and tune right. Even after a protune, he's had it in and out of the shop trying to iron out all the bugs.
yeah its coming nicely... just waiting for my buddy to get a day off work (when the tuner shop is open) so he can take it down and throw it on the dyno.... i could get it done sooner but he is the only one i trust to drive my car.
So hows the new GT3071R turbo coming??
found a guide on here actually looks sweet they painted a little more than i did.. and added some pvc pipe in teh turn signal section.. i think i may redo mine and do this to them... http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/exteri...tructions.html
yeah its pretty easy but still can be tricky there is a guide on how to do it on nasioc.. just use search and enter "painting stock headlights" its step by step should help out
Oh i see what your talking about. So its gotta be pretty easy to do then right? paint everything but the reflectors and throw them back on. Ill do it this saturday, ill throw some pics up for ya when im done. I also plan on taking out both fogs and putting grill mesh in place of them, for one i think it will look better and second nothing wrong with more airflow.
yeah take alook at the front end photo i posted earlier and look at my headlights basically i went in and painted all the silver black (minus the actual reflectors for the lights)
Paint my stock headlights? Never heard of it. Im still fairly new to everything that isnt powertrain mods.
here ya go link to STi RA gearset... http://www.scoobytuner.com/products/...&productID=585 over at scoobytuner... I have no idea where you came up with $600 a gear lol.. they are nice... I definately enjoy the wider gears... but as for stronger... thats still a matter of opinion I think. I'm Either going to goto a 6pds tranny or ppg straight for gears 1-2 and helical for 3-4.
