Gonna try out a new summer tire. Nitto Invo. Hopefully they will come in before the Texas 86 day cruise coming up. My tires now are sh*t.

Haven't been able to do anything to my car as of late. Got a set of Perrin steering rack lockdowns but haven't installed them. Had a bit of bad luck on the way down to the Texas 86 Day cruise. Driving down the highway and the car in front of me ran over a piece of wood or plastic and flung it into the from of my car. Busted the AC condenser for the second time since I've bought the car. Cracked my front bumper in a couple of places and busted by fog light bezel. Could've been worse. Could've busted a hole in my heat exchanger or radiator which would have left me stranded on the side of the road. Fortunately I only had to deal with Texas heat with no AC, lol. Unfortunately my car funds are spent for the year. Have to wait until after tax time next year before I can start fixing sh*t on my car.

Sorry about your accident. Been where you were, but mine was a six foot aluminum ladder and rush hour traffic with no place to go.

Good luck with your repair. I've had great luck with Best of Show in Garland matching my SWP paint on another ouch.

Just installed the Perrin steering rack lockdowns I got back in August. I can't tell a difference between having them and not. A lot of people say that steering feels more "crisp" or "responsive" but even when concentrating really hard I could not feel anything different from before. I didn't pay full price for them so I don't feel too bad about having them, but I would say spend your money elsewhere first. I would put money on it that if you had a stock FRS and one with this bolted on and you didn't know you were driving one that was different, you wouldn't be able to tell.

I like your build. I'm a little jealous you're running standard premium and getting 285whp with you 70mm pulley. I'm getting just over 250whp. I'm guessing it's the full 3" exhaust that's giving you that extra power over mine. I just have a 2.5" with one high flow cat in the Nameless over/front pipe. If you get e85, you'll be at about 300whp for sure! Or just wait to get the Sprintex 335 instead, which is what I'm going back and forth with, but that will take more effort & $ to get the most out of it with a built engine and driveline.

Been a while since I've been on. Life and shit, ya know. @stockysnail the 285 HP is on E85. I was hoping to hit the 300 mark but it also was in the middle of summer when I did the dyno pull. I just installed the 9.0 tune from @DeliciousTuning so that with possibly the 69mm pulley in a colder climate would get me really close I think.

With almost 3 years of ownership and about a year and a half of having the twin screw supercharger I can say confidently that if I had to do it all over again, I would still go the same route. There is never a time where I have really needed more power. It's always there whenever I need it. Car is still a blast to drive even though I don't get to drive it as often as I would like. Have close to 40k miles on it now with about 15k of those being supercharged.

This past year I didn't get to do **** to my car. Hopefully this next year will be different. But new house and a new baby being here in the next couple of weeks might deter that for another year or so. Until then, I'll just drive the piss out of it as it is now. It's been good fun so far.

Were you at the 86 Meet this past August? I would have loved to have seen your set up!

Would you be able to find me/get me one of those IAT/MAP sensor plates? I'd like to be able to monitor my post charge intake temperatures.
