VEHICLE STORY

Bought this car brand new and put all 100,000+ miles on it. I learn the hard way in life and I have paid for many hard lessons with building this car. I understand the common theme that if you wanted to go fast you should have gotten the v6. Well, I couldn't afford it back when I bought it. Car stayed stock for about 65,000 miles. I installed everything other than the transmission and exhaust. It has DM 5k HIDs. I upgraded suspension to bc racing coilovers. Put fk ethos 18x8 rims wrapped in 235/45 tread. Stillen strut tower brace, stillen rsb. Upgraded brakes to carbon ceramic pads on slotted front rotors, drilled/slotted rear. Stillen header, custom exhaust. Custom intake. Still haven't found a shop that can tune the qr25de so it is what it is for now. Originally I bought the spec-v HLSD unit to have it installed in my transmission so that I could keep my final gear ratio and still have the incredible gas mileage. However, long story short the transmission shop that installed it (517 transmission in ogdensburg, nj) completely ruined my transmission. I had to buy a salvaged spec-v Trans with 44k miles and had it installed with a clutch masters fx100 kit with upgraded organic/Kevlar disc. Last but not least it has a racingline sts as well. Still on a stock tune because I can't find anyone who can tune a qr25de yet. Top speed is limited to 113 due to the stock tune.
