Jumping on the Neuspeed GB and getting a rear sway.

Still trying to decide on oil, but I suppose I can't really go wrong with Mobil 1 0w40.

Also starting to plan the suspension out. I think I'm going to go with Bilsteins over Konis, but I'm still on the fence. However, here's the list I have currently.

- DG Springs
- Bilstein B8 dampers or Koni Yellows
- TT strut mounts
- SKF strut bearings
- Neuspeed 25mm RSB

Still have to do some final adjustment, but they're in.

Thanks!

I shoot with a Canon 50D, and primarily two different lenses; my Tamron 17-50 f/2.8, and my Canon 70-200 f/4L IS. Edited with Lightroom and Photoshop.

Seriously man, jump on that Depo group buy already.

And which Motul oil are you running?

Great idea for the license plate. I'm going to do that when I get some time. My dealer screwed in the plate a little off center so I now have to correct their mistake.

Yeah, it really ended up working out well. Just be careful when drilling out the holes, the size needs to be exact, or the rubber well nuts will be a little loose.

Anyways, installed my boost gauge tonight, finally. That whole process sucked. The boost line was about 3 inches shy of allowing me to route the line the way I wanted, so I had to re-do my line routing. I also want to re-do the wiring, I'm not completely thrilled with how I tapped into the headlight harness.

It works, though. I think. Showing 22-23 in Hg of vacuum at idle, and a peak of 9 lbs of boost that settles to around 7 lbs at WOT. Did a few on-ramp pulls to test things out. Sound about right to you guys?

Here's a shot of the New South ventpod installed.

You mean the spot behind the wheel? That's a reflection, smartass.

I didn't even notice it until now, though.
