Any plans to track or auto cross the car?

My plan is to learn some performance driving first. I think I am more likely to track than auto cross. But not until I finish here up.

Autocross is a fun and cheap way to learn how your car handles, any experience like autocrossing before going to the track helps immensely. Not sure of autox's that are near ann arbor though, there is a group around GR called furrin group that hosts a few autox's. I'd check out Gingerman for a first timer on track, that's where my first track day was at and it's perfect!

Switched to uberstealth 10inch sub today. That shallow mount surprised me for sure. It pumps. And I got my trunk space back.

18 hours later, and the turbo is in. Followed Grambles install thread mostly but there were some discrepancies or updated needed either typo or MY difference. Only 2 major hiccups in addition to the ecs turbo install kit seeming to be missing some parts. Had to end up reusing some washers. Kinda hated to do that.
Flashed it with Eurodyne k04 software.
We were able to manage the coolant leaks and fix them. No oil leaks. I think it be ok. Going to go easy on it next few days to let ceramic coating cure and monitor fluids. But I can finally say k04. Wish I was able to take photos, but I was just too busy under the car. Shoutout to my local buddies helping me with the install.
👍👍

Oil change liquid moly 44400
Ngk platinum spark plugs 8 heat range
Unitronic dv relocation

Thanks man. Southeast A2 area. Car is almost done. Charge pipe and catch can this weekend. Then just some cosmetic cleanups and summer times. I'll be straight until I decide to upgrade the brakes or get 3 piece rims
