Dirty Engine Bay pic:


I recently added a Quaife Front LSD when I had the transmission rebuilt by Jacks again. 2nd gear and the center spider went out for some unknown reason.

I got the car back from RRE a couple of months ago. Since between work and school, I have not had much of a chance to do to much to it. I did decide to stop daily driving it on my 80 mile commute as I don't want to risk having it hit.

Car looks great, man.

I have been thinking of doing the body color handles to my car when I get the bumpers sprayed, but now I'm having second thoughts.
I love the look on the BG and KG cars but I'm not feeling it on the SW car. Mine is also white so I have some thinking to do now, lol.

I finally installed my Whiteline Rear strut bar to complement my front Whiteline Strut Bar and WL Rear Sway Bar. I had RRE install the Whiteline front sway bar along with a rebuild rack and pinion with new tierods due to leakage while putting the transmission back in.

It actually came in a box of spare parts when I purchased the car some years back. First one I ever seen like it

Thank you. I put it up on Craigslist. Someone flew in from Utah to buy it and drove it back home.

Last week I started to pull out my Koni's and H&R springs. I started with the rear.



To put these in:



They are KW V3 Robispecs with OEM Evo tophats. I used the Supercar Engineering rear adapters. They fit perfectly. Well worth the price. I did not purchase the front as it seems very steep for 4 bolts and some washers.



Here they are installed in the rear.





I will hopefully try to install the KW's in the front this or next weekend.

Quality parts and execution . How do you like the Koni's with the H&R's? I am still researching other spring options before I get GC's. Those K-dubs though. Also, where did you get that GReddy air intake pipe? Never seen that before. Also, what wheels are those?

^ Thank you. The Koni/H&R spring combo is by far my favorite DD setup. Koni/H&R Springs > Bilstein/Swift Springs.
Tee Koni's are just just that good and smooth. When adjusted they will transform as needed.

I manged to find the Greddy intake pipe from a Greddy Turbo kit that was being parted out from a 2g. The pipe was never sold individually from Greddy, only when someone purchased their complete turbo kit.

I am really looking forward to getting the KW install finished and see how they feel on the GVR-4.

Wheels are ADR's.

I got the front KW's installed over the weekend.



KW next to my Koni insert setup with H&R springs:



KW's with GVR-4 Top hats



Installed:
The front required "spacers" in between the hub and the Evo style struts as the ears are spaced out 5mm wider



Here it is all bolted up.

I replaced the OEM strut mounts with Cusco pillowball mount camber plates so I have some additional adjustment room for camber.






I also replaced my rear camber arms that had Whiteline busings for 3SX arms. I purchased them with the boots and the hardware. When installing them, you are much better off using the OEM eccentric bolts for additional adjustment.



I was also able to score a set of 17x8.5 +42 Work Emotion XD9 Wheels. They came with Michelin A/S tires in a 235/45/17. I will be replacing them soon with some stickier tires in a 245/40/17.
(Car and Wheels are a bit dirty in these pictures)

Any reason you went with Evo tophats over GVR4 ones in the rear? I'm about to install my V3's and am going to source new tophats all around.



ALL DSM's are advanced and ALL Evo's retarded

The rear OEM Tops fit but the Evo rears have better rubber. The Evo rears are also a direct bolt on. I had some laying around so I used them. I had read somewhere on here that someone had issues with the OEM rear tophats with the evo suspension because of where or how the material was laid out.

I swapped out the Tuners Nation Radiator in favor of the new Koyo Evo 3 Radiator that replaces the R series. I swapped out the shrouded Flex A Lite fan for the New Mishimoto Raceline series shrouded fan.

click Link to the site and specs for whatever raceline fan you want. I can't tell you how it feels though.



There's always someone on the internet that can take a neutral comment and turn it into drama.

Mishimoto's slim line is crap. That fan looks pretty well built, though. Specs say it moves 1850cfm, which is a fuck ton of air. Keep us posted, and let us know how it performs.

You're car looks beautiful, man. The bronze Work wheels on the SW are meant to be. Very nice work

^^ Thank you!I do like the way it looks
Yes, the Mishimoto slimline is pathetic. I would almost guess that most ebay fans flow more than the their slimline. I have unfortunately had them in the past.
I replaced my Shrouded Flex A Lite (http://www.streettunedmotorsports.com/parts/fal_fan.htm) with this new Mishimoto Raceline fan that supposedly flows much more air. I still haven't really put it to the test as I have only been driving it locally. My FAL had no issues but I just want to be prepared for when I/if I start road racing the car. I will forsure auto-x it. I wish I could of fit both fans side by side, but there is just not enough room in front of the turbo with the thick Koyo radiator.

When road racing you should be at speeds high enough where a fan wouldn't even be necessary. Anything over 30 mph is going to cause more airflow across the core than any fan will. If you have a problem at low speeds/idle have you thought about putting the second fan in front as a pusher like the factory AC fan?
