    I dont think the clutch would have hurt the dyno run unless you were revving up to high rpm and shifting. Dont quote me on that tho...

    Ok so i had the clutch installed yesterday i got the car back this morning and wow what a huge difference a new clutch made.The pedal is nice and smooth its not hard to push in and the take up is instant no slipping.I keep spinning the wheels in first when i take off
    ill be up for new rubber if this keeps up lol.

    here some pics of the old clutch.

    yes i want to get those lights.

    On another note i got my car lowered today .... what a hassle so story goes i got some spring for fathers day and went to install them but my mechanic said they were to big the outside diameter of the fronts were larger than std springs so i then got a new set sent and these finally fit .Turns out my car needs 8th gen corolla springs cause 7th gen did'nt work ,go figure any way ill get pics tomorrow

    please do not get those head lights, they look way too ricer. If there are other options for projector head lights get those.

    please do not leave your hood like that..... paint it gloss black or color match please.

    And if you get those head lights, you need a US grille.

    I prefer you'd get the same head lights like you have, just blacked out and clear.

    They would look a hell of alot better without the 3 LEDs by the highbeam. And get rid of the halos. Too "mazda" looking for me imo

    Looking good man. Interesting to see that you got the front lip off a Capella. Was there any modification necessary?

    Yer the front lip screws on, there's enough room under the original front bar to get them in i would suggest take the bumper off first then screw it on , you'll have to play with the angle to get it centred
