I was wondering if it was warped. Are those Bason R brand?

It does look good, did you order it and just put it on yourself? Also, want to get some fog lights eventually.

Hub centric rings and lug nuts came in! Rims will be mounted on Wednesday, if I can figure out which tire size to go with lol. I'm debating between 245/35/18 or 255/35/18 all around. I have TRD lowering springs as well. Really don't want poke. It looks like there is poke in the front, but not back, according to the tire fitment calculator thing with the 255/35/18. Kinda wishing I would have went staggered, and just gotten large tires in the back. I want some grip for when I go turbo later this summer.

Had a sign shop do it for me. they do vinyl and window tinting for commercial vehicles so i figured 1 color roof should be easy. and fog lights def make the car look good and prices are dropping for them. the bezels are gloss black instead of the dull black that the covers are. the wiring is hard to understand at first but then it all makes sense. i could help you out with it when you get it. I'm looking at boost but there are so many options out there idk what to get.

I know lol there is so much aftermarket support for these cars that it's insane. Really makes making a decision difficult. I'm going between the SBD and VORTECH. Mainly because I'm not looking for crazy power and just want a simple kit, since this is my DD.

I'm looking at vortech for supercharger but then again cxracing has a turbo kit for pretty cheap that a friend of mine didnt have trouble with until he pumped the boost to 14psi and was racing it. he said he had no trouble around 5-7psi. still waiting on my backordered pulleys to start my build thread.

What trouble did he have? I was looking at that in the past. The made in china turbo and waste gate worry me a little. I know another guy on here was running it for awhile too. Eventually blew his engine but I think he auto crossed regularly.

was it admir? and my brother is getting a vortech kit with bigger pulley this summer. A local member offered to take me for a drive in his custom 67mm turbo frs made by a local fabricator (driven). I want to do that before making a decision. Might have him make me one too.

it was a guy i knew when i was in washington/oregon. can't remember his forum name. i'm going to work super/turbocharger supporting mods while i decide. like mishimoto oil cooler and catch can, seibon ts hood, clutch, suspension and so on.

i'm also worried about my exhaust because its invidia op and fp and 2.5" catback so i might bump up the catback to 3" while i'm at it. this is going to be a whole nother process lol. it makes me want to sell all my cosmetic mods and use that money for performance.

yeah forced induction is next on my list. I think as far as the exhaust goes I'm just going to have my local muffler shop use the resonator section of my exhaust since its clamped on to the rest and fab up 3" piping from the manifold/header back. Did that for my 3000gt and it only ran me about $350

mine's catless without a resonator. i'm scared of how loud it'll be lol. try to keep it as close as you can to the rear axle when going under it. my flange right there hits bumps in the road sometimes and is the lowest part on my car. i cry a little every time i hear that ringing noise.
