I checked on my headlights after leaving the car in the rain yesterday and there was no condensation, so I guess I got a good seal on them. Question for others who painted their headlight bezels: did you clear coat them at all?

@Face_Plant - Looks great, if you don't mind me asking, where did you get the diffuser from? I haven't seen one for $60.

As the person above me mentioned, I got it from eBay. They had cheaper ones, but I chose the $60 one because the seller had better feedback and so I wouldn't be getting the absolute "bottom of the barrel" piece, although I'm sure they're all pretty much the same.

Thanks, that makes sense, I don't need it to be super cheap but like you said, it doesn't make sense to spend $700 either.

@Leonardo - thanks for the link. I'll look for something similar on eBay.

And for less than that price you can buy something that will actually work.

Just installed the Velox fuel rail covers. Nothing fancy.

Ordered the Tomei Expreme UEL headers. Will be here Friday and my exhaust will finally be finished. I just hope it’s not too loud with the Tanabe OP, Tanabe catless FP and Invidia N1.

Too a day off from work to have a track day and hear those tires squeal.

Finally got time to fix a pesky oil leak on the return and feed lines.

The return line especially had failed spectacularly by billowing smoke from dripping right on tot he header runners where it meets the oil pan. Basically, the hose clamp wasn't doing its job and the hose too had seen some wear weirdly.

Mocal USA hooked me up with a sweet return line complete with heat/flame sleeve that I also wrapped with heat reflective tape since it passes close to the header.

The oil feed line and restrictor were also leaking oil and apparently it had to do with the cheap hardware. So replaced them.

PRL also didn't include a coolant line kit for the GTX 2867R gen2 upgrade and fellow member Decay107 brought to my attention. SO ordered up the necessary hardware and got them plumbed to coolant point at the throttle body.

So far, no more oil leaks or coolant leaks.

Free air? Sealed somehow? I like the look.
