Looks good! I may pick some VWR springs up local. Just afraid my larger winter tired may rub.

Best of luck! Mods spiral out of control for me. New oil cap turns into..."well I might as well go K04 too I guess"

yeah tell me about it. i just decided to go from a catback to a turboback because why not, and i want to do the catch can but will probably make it into one big project involving upgrading coils and plugs, and replacing the PCV breather tube i busted when i installed my intake pipe a few weeks ago. and need to figure out if ill need to borrow a dremel to modify the engine cover to make room for the catch can hoses on the front side.

Nice. The unibrace is a great piece. It didn't make a huge difference right away, but when paired with other suspension mods it's awesome!

I ordered hatch pop kit as well! I've ran into the situation too many times where I say to myself, "man a hatch pop kit would be really helpful right now." so I finally just bit the bullet and ordered one.
