thanks...
i plan on it......hopefully next is the bsd mod....

to anyone that's done this, can you feel the difference?.....any more vibration without it?
A tad bit more vibes at idle, other then that, it adds a additional qtr of oil, drops about 19lbs of static weight as well as rotational weight. 4 bolts & you have 19lbs of scrap in your hand, install the plug to block off the oil feed hole for the bs. I peened mine in. A great Saturday morning project.

Man, that's looks sooo good. Lots of little work adding up to huge results. IMHO, those are the best looking wheels, and look great on your setup. ?
Thanks..... it’s coming along good, the clear coat on the wheels is peeling, so I may sand them down and plastidip or spray them ( still in the liquid grey)

Still lots to do though:)......

A few more pics of the added graphics, I didn’t want to scream or even whisper rice...so I tried to keep it subtle..... and trying to colour match behind the front wheels would of been a pain.... so I just wrapped it with a grunge theme instead....

More small stuff..... didn’t like the mess of cables on dash by radio from the phone chargers etc. So I made and hardwired in a 4 port USB hub in that unused tray under the hvac controls.... was just a 10 buck USB car charger that I hacked apart...

Then I combined a magnetic dollar stor phone holder with the cigarette lighter and voila.....I would of taken a picture with the phone mounted... but I was raking the pics with the phone....

Doesn’t even fall off when hitting bumps... and a much cleaner dash look....

And no, I didn’t put the st badge there:)

And on another note.... put my parts car back together enough to give my boy his first driving lesson ever.... and on a standard too:).... my boy ain’t gonna be one of those people that can’t drive a stick shift:)

Ive always thought the clutch on the duratecs were very easy to learn on. Glad to hear another generation is getting to learn to drive manual, keep up the good work
Ya, i agree, within an hour, he was driving 60km/ hour, up and down the back roads....still hard on my neck...but getting smoother with every shift:)

I belive every person should know how to drive a manual, teach that boy right! My first time ever driving was when I passed my permit test and my dad made me drive his 5 speed ZX5 home for an hour long drive. Now, manuals are the only cars I'm willing to drive.
