    yea lol I've had to adjust my driving style a bit to compensate for the lack of ground clearance now. I also like that it's grabbing people's attention. More then I thought.

    of course you're grabbing people's attention! I don't know how you people do it, saw a super slammed Civic today, no lip or anything, and it was like that amount of clearance lol. Jeez. My problem isn't the front though, it's the fenders/RCAs

    I've got plenty of suspension travel. I don't need the body of my car that low. This lip is pretty huge as you can probably tell. I'm dropped two inches and it extended probably another 1-1.5 inches off the bumper. It flares in the front but still it's gotten tricky to drive around and know where I'll scrape lol. I tag the drivers side of it mostly because I turn left a lot lol.

    Well I want to be lol, but it's just not practical. But I got some plans, hopefully I can go lower and get away with a bigger lip again.

    Actually it was fun having it off. I could pull out of my driveway at normal speed and not worry about scraping.

    As I'm scrolling back and reading the old posts, there's a lot to add. So first things first: added a intake pipe along with the BFI
    [IMG]

    That front lip I used to have? The day I got it on nice and good someone offered me cash for it. Sold it.



    Remember these wheels?? Yea they're gone too. Sold to a local kid who's modifying a second gen avalon to look like the one I used to have. Go figure.

    I've been rolling around on stockers since the day after H20i and I was enjoying life

    There's some bad here so here it is:
    Clutch started slipping sometime in November. I'm thinking rear main seal is seeping a little because it holds sometimes and sometimes it slips. I've just ordered a Spec stage two and that should be here soon. Now why an overkill clutch you may ask?

    Going turbo. Because Fuck being slow. I have a turbo picked out but not purchased. All the rest will come in due time.

    The manifold is CX racing. I've had it checked over by a welder at my job and he ok'd it. I was going to reinforce the shit out of the thing but now there's no need.

    Isn't it better to swap a GTE than to boost an n/a 2JZ?

    Nothing wrong with my motor though. Internals for the most part are the same. I have higher compression. Can fix that by getting a thicker headgasket. I have that in the works after the turbo is up and running.
