    No their not the tires are almost tucking just can't really tell from the pics and SC is known for having some of the worst roads in the US so don't want it slammed lol plus that's as low as it will go in the front with ground controls which is still lower than the teins were.

    So you will be running the AEM since you're going turbo? Not bothering with the celica ECU again?

    I think that height looks pretty good. Low enough but not too low haha. By the way, how's the light output on your black housing headlights? I've been considering getting those if the beam pattern was the same as or better than stock.

    I would deffinately say the lighting is better than stock, people always seem to think I have my high beams on when I don't. And I just don't feel like dealing with the wiring of the celica ecu nobody makes a patch harness for easy plug and play even though I was willing to pay a good price. I haven't decided if Ima go turbo or NA yet but I have an entire spare motor to build or send to MWR as a core. Either way I'll have the AEM piggy back to tune it so will be easy. As far as the height of my car I like it I don't bottom out or scrub and it still looks good and handles like a beast I can take curves about as fast as I want lol

    Irvin made a patch harness for the celica Ecu and 9th gen Corolla Ecu. If you pm him I'm sure he would be willing to make you one. I don't know if the piggy back allows you to change the rev limiter

    So today i installed my fog light relay and new oem stalk with fog switch and still no fog lights. Am I missing something? I put the 15 amp fuse in where it needed to be and the fogs have new bulbs I'm stumped.

    Sounds like you forgot the Relay, All you have to do is plug it in

    Relay looks like this

    [IMG]

    Its located on the drivers side footwell. There's a empty orange socket for the relay just put on in there and you're good

    The FIC-4 or an Emanage Ultimate would also have you covered, unless you need the 8 because you'll be running an auxilary injector for boost or something.But it looks like you have money to burn you lucky fucker :p

    I've already installed the relay and fuse but nothing happens when I try to turn the fog lights on. It shouldn't be the new stalk bc the headlights and turn signals are working.

    So I should hear a clicking sound coming from the relay itself ? And if not then they sold me a bad relay?

    Ok I'll have to check for that and is it possible that the 15 amp fuse could just be bad or something without being burned out?
