Well I'm looking to make 275 awhp after my upgrades. Maybe after next season, fuel pump, injectors, intercooler. 16g. As it stands it is stock.

Got a nice new set of wheels to add to my collection. 18" kosei k3's. kumho ecsta ect's. love these tires. I wouldnt think to buy another brand. the paint is chameleon color brown, purple, and green.I am very pleased with how they look. any feed back or out rage is greatly appreciated.

Today I Adjusted the linkage in the shifter, and tightened all the axises and pivot points greased em up, and expecto pertronium, I stopped grinding gears.

-next up for the car is to fix the clutch pedal assembly that plagues all dsm's.

I've been trying to hack away at this power steering problem, the pressure hoses and fittings are fine. Its the power steering rack leaking, tomorrow I'm taking the steering rack assembly out to see if its

-cracked
-rotted

also i might be replacing the tyrod end on the front right.
