Goodies arrived. I am impatient and didn't feet like waiting 3 months for pedders mounts so I installed them with the stock mounts and reused the crash bolt and camber bolt. Took some photos of their positions to get it close until I get the alignment checked again.

Changed coilpacks yesterday and went for a canyon drive with a friend in his s2000 this morning. Fun weekend and the coilpacks are working great so far.

Spring maintenance day.
Changed the oil, touched up some stone chips, did a bolt check on the headers/OP and Applied some DEI heat tape to the oil pan.

Gave her a nice wash.


Someone scraped up her bumper today just after that while I was working. The alarm goes off when I slam the gas cap too hard but if some asshole scrapes up my bumper? Nothing apparently.


I was debating wrapping the car this summer and now I think my decision is made.

Test fitted the Greddy front lip. Nice and tight fitment. Now onto the paint shop.

As much as I love detailing the exterior.. interior cleaning is a choir for me
Fortunately I have a friend who does offers detailing services and will do my interior and hit all the fabrics with a extractor. Those things work amazingly well.

Yep, it's definitely a choir. I use a carpet cleaner to clean all the fabrics.

I used to clean the interior of my car way more often but with age it's getting harder to find the motivation. But hey, at least I got a decent workout out of it; my back thigh muscles were sore the next day

Are you logging oil temps? Has it made a difference?

I monitored it on my 30 minute drive yesterday with torque app and honestly could not tell the difference.
Temps peaked at 212F after a 2nd-3rd pull which falls into normal range.

Might make a difference under heavier load conditions with extended high rpm. Once I confirm my alignment isn't out of whack I'll be going on a nice mountain drive and see how it fares.

I hope you have some type of current protection close to the battery. Can not tell from the picture?
