thats a great amount of mods so far I've been going back and forth on whether I wana get lowering springs for mine. I definitely recommend the Solo Performance Catback Exhaust system and the rally armour mudflaps. sounds like you have good taste haha

@Reaper7 Thank you! Hmm, yeah the catch cans all costs so much money, and the ones that aren't don't look very nice. But for the amount of money I spent on that catch can, I think it's worth it. I am going to install it this week. The catch can's build quality isn't too bad. It has a cork in the bottom where you twist it to let out the unknown oily mixture in the can (much like an oil change). If it's nice, i'll be sure to tell you!

@DennisVT HA! Yes, good taste indeed lol :p I am a poor college kid, so I am trying to save up for the exhaust... i hope I can get it by the end of the sale.

My friend and I (who always helps me out :)) finished 75a rev motor bushing install. It vibrates quite a bit in idle with the ac on. Do not be fooled when people say it's a light vibration. There is a light vibration w/o ac on though. When you turn on the engine, it feels sexy. Wheel hop is almost completely eliminated and you can hold your wheels spinning unlike before.

Catch can installed!! I zip-tied it too , but it's just a fail-safe thing. I bolted it on the rubber washer or wahtever it is holding my CAI. It moves around with my intake, and i think it's fine.

I also installed the Rally Armor Mudflaps, and I will take a picture of the car later! It looks very nice. I hurt myself really badly installing it though. It's not THAT easy because of the location of the bolts.

Love the work. Great liking car. I think some people mentioned the light vibrations, meant it in reference to other cars they've had.
With AC full blast barely notice it, but that's because my other car shakes like a roid freak that's foaming at the mouth to attack
What else you got planned for your car

Thank you guys for all the support! I actually ordered the 65A bushings to see the difference. Might swap, might not.
I don't have anything immediate to come except an alignment lol. I have to take a picture with the mudflaps; I think it really adds to the car.

For the future, I plan on getting a catback preferably solo. After that get wheels. I am really like the xxr530s and might get the 18x7.5. It's really light. With a set of continental dws.
After that, some small cosmetics like tints. Maybe HIDs and KDM headlights to get rid of that amber.


Next up would be an fmic or a downpipe or both!
And when my struts/shocks go bad hoping to buy some ngm or ks port coilovers.

Really, mods are endless. Considering this will be my daily driver and autox car, I won't go too hard core.
Like what everyone would do if they had the money, go full bolt ons and get a tune. This car needs better throttle response...

Thanks for the info 3sxturbo!

Yeah john, they're awesome. Thanks again for the recommendation. Let's try to get them more business!

I love my solo cat back. yeah it is really quiet stock haha, like any economy car. You really do hear what the car is like with the solo. I highly recommend you get it if you have the cash. I have the straight pipe and it's quite loud at choke. No drone though! At the worst when you give it a little gas on the highway, giving around 20-30% load you do hear a buzzing noise, but its worth it.

When you go WOT, God it's beautiful. I am installing my HFC from solo this weekend and I might/might not put the resonator on. I'll put up a video after I get my HFC on.
