I like everything you're doing, but consider 235's for your tires...more meat and should fit no problem. There is a vcds adjustment in Instruments that will keep the speedo accurate.
w0000t lots of amazing things happening here. You're going to love the R2's. I have them as well paired with Vorschlag camber plates. There's a lot of learning curve involved in dialing them in though.
Vorschlag has a spacer that you fit in between the strut tower and strut which solves that. I'm sure if you made sure to tell them that when ordering they would include it no problem. I just didnt realize it until after I went for the corner balance and alignment, so now in order to install that I'd have to take the struts down again and get another alignment.I am likely going to go with IE for camber plates, either that or ground control. You said you had issues with your vorschlag right? Did you widen the hole in the strut tower to make easier access for adjustments?
Drop to 17x9 with 245 tires, I should have done this a long time ago.I had a 235 before, and while I might have more grip, there was a loss in "feel" due to the tire actually being slightly taller. Maybe since the new wheels are half an inch wider that might negate that, but 225 also gives me significantly more options for tire (and are also a lot cheaper). If anything, I'd go to a 255/35 in the front, which has identical specs to a 225/40 (aside from width of course). But because there are already so many variables being changed over one winter (new suspension, brakes, etc), I'd like to have some constants.
Nice placement for the oil cooler, is it actually touching the backside of the fog light housing? It get super hot. Make sure you use the Mocal thermostat as well.
Nice cooler...where did you find that??
