2.0L FF13 Build.

Well I'm not concerned with winning the contest, just try to get my self motivated and accountable to get some stuff done.

List of what I want to do before FF13:

Paint inside of headlights.
Paint EAP gold.
Polish.
Make engine cover.
Honeycomb taillights and tint.
Minor wire tuck.
Paint mirror caps.

Maybe do:

Fix minor spots on window tint.
Paint suspension and underbody.
Drop it, drop it low, drop it drop it low. (depends on budget)

Current:





Modifications:

Uhh. I washed it.
I have done a little spray painting.
Oh EAP SVT wheels.
New stereo head unit.


And I saw this over to the right, so I thought I'd include it.

Nice...word of advice since I've been through 3 diff suspension setups now (2 coilovers) even if you intend on racing, but never want to adjust the height once it's set, go with some paired stuff. I've had a Tein kit and a Bilstein kit (both great since they are adjustable and bilstein is better than tein of course) but once height was set I was done...I've only adjusted the dampening for racing. if you can find a set with adjustable dampening only for cheaper than a bilstein kit that it as good or better quality go for it :)

Purdy car. I think the SAP sedan's look really good. Probably the best sedan (stock).

So you think I should just go with coilovers? Or spring and Strut?

Updates.

Head unit it. Wanted a nice clean one, nothing flashy, something close to factory look.





Also started prepping my wheels for paint.



And a confession...
