FINALLY installed my Cusco Oil/Air Separator today after 3-4 weeks of receiving it! Went to ENZED in Osborne Park, picked up some black hose(2m) and then picked up some hose clamps from Bunnings and also a 90degree barb joiner(13mm).

Check out the install, kinda looks OEM. I'm thinking of powder coating the CUSCO Oil/Air separator can, and maybe getting a satin finish on the connectors at a later day so the engine bay isn't as 'blingy'.

Nice. Ordered my Weds without seeing them on a white, this makes me very happy with my purchase.

How are you finding the Michelin's on the wider wheels.

That's a fair list of mods. Can't say I like the mismatched colour of the sharkfin though.
Any reason why so much hose for catch can? I would run the hose as short as possible.
Thoughts on the TRD brake pads? Are you going to go to the track, or jsut got them "because TRD"?
That alloy shift knob will get mighty hot in the sun :P

Michelins look kinda stretched. I always drive with VSC and TC on though. Tyre has enough grip, but 225's would be much better.
I'll be doing light track events with the SilviaWA boys next fortnight @ Midvale Speed Dome so I'll give the HP's a workout

I used the shorter run towards the catch can first, and the longer tubing back to the intake. Only reason why it's longer is because the connector was a 90 degree 13mm barbed connector from bunnings and there was no straight barbed connectors. Also the OEM tubing has a 'kink' on the tube so even if there was a straight connector, the placement of hose would look odd(to me at least).

Gonna be taking the car to the track next fortnight(see above). And probably do a RAC Tuning event with some of the Evo boys at a later date.

Yeah we get RIPPED off here in Australia, mainly cos of shipping and ridiculous labour charges here. Looking back, that $160 for a strip and fit was wasted, I should have went to a different place that did a PROPER JOB(the lead weights on the car fell off), but I was too keen to get the wheels changed on the day I bought it.

A cheaper alternative for wheels would have been to get a set of Enkei RPF1's over east for around $1300, but they wouldn't have been as light, nor as 'aesthetic' as the Weds

the fact is, it really relies on the wheels installed on the wheels. The size of the 15 in could actually be small than the 14. You could determine the distinction in the area of the two wheels and it would tell you the amount of obtain or decrease in range visited.

Didn't like the idea of buying NEW tyres for the car.
Plus the 17x8's are lighter and the biggest width I would probably go is 225's
