The birdy flutter blowoff is my #1 complaint about intakes on this car.
Did you definitely notice more performance with Carbonio? Do you still have it?

oh yes, for sure. but not on low end at all. equal at best. the top end is where it really blew me away with the power way past redline.

It's been a while since I've done any new mods but just this last weekend, I finally did my suspension.

Got H&R Ultra Low Coilovers, & an H&R 24mm rear sway bar.

I'm VERY happy with the drop. The stance is GREAT. Had some rubbing issues, which you will see below, but I had those fixed.

Thanks to Adam's Rotors, AR Garage, Adam Woodhams, & Sam Williams for the install/advice!!!

Even did the needle swipe VAG on the car in the process. :-)

Before Front Shock/Spring



Before Rear Shock/Spring



Shiny New H&R Parts





After Front Shock/Spring



After Rear Shock/Spring



After Rear Sway Bar



Stance







So this was all done Saturday. I drove the car a few times Sunday with 2 different people in it, at different times. I had a little rub, but nothing crazy. Monday morning, I went to get coffee with my friend riding in the passenger seat. Made a u-turn and felt more rub than the day before. Immediately after the u-turn, tried to turn into a driveway with the passenger side wheel going in at an angle first. Heard a very loud and nasty sound. Parked, got out of the car, and saw this horrific sight:





NOT GOOD. I should've had the fenders rolled before doing all of this. Anyway, went to a DOPE shop called Sonic Motorsports in Santa Clara, CA. Guy named Calvin helped me out, even squeezed me in for an appointment the SAME DAY. $65 each fender. Looks brand new, and is tucked so far in that I haven't had ANY rub whatsoever since the work was done.

Next up: Stretch & Poke. Full turbo-back exhaust.

All 4? There's nothing to roll in the rear.. Out rear quoter panels do not have a lip to fold but the front fenders do.
Any future plans for some wheels? Or just gonna rock the stock ones? If so, get some 205/35/18 so you can do some frame sliding without any rubbing lol

Well you got the best coils on the market so you can make em Detroits stand out with some crazy stance! All it is, is some stretch and poke since you already got a drop.

I'm kinda dissapointed I went with "go" over "show" at first.
With the money I waisted on a stage II and all of its components.. Could of had some fresh wheels much earlier since speed only gets you in trouble.

LOL, very true! I did a little GO first, but more show. Now... it's time for the GO.

Next we're doing a dual can turboback exhaust with 3" downpipe, high flo cats, and 3.5" dual wall tips. And an APR Stage II tune.
