Smile jguitarz's rotor glow RA

I thought I would start a build thread of my own. I have not done much at all but that is slowly changing.

Here it is in all it's stock glory:


Since then I got Magnaflow catback exaust (which sounds phenomenal btw) and plasti-dipped my rims.

Magnaflow exhaust (that's my brother in law in the photo, he's a great mechanic):


Plasti-dipped rims:


There are some other things I added but don't have pictures for yet. I got decals for the sides of spoiler, an alloy fuel door, and some other small interior accessories.

Here are my future plans (I will be checking off things in this list as I complete them)
To go faster:
[ ]upgrade FMIC and UICP (not sure if I should also get LICP too).
[ ]get a good retune
and then I'm really not sure what to do next

To look awesome:
[ ]racing seats
[x]new rims
[ ]bigger spoiler lol
[ ]vortex generator
[ ]rear diffuser
[ ]maybe front lip/side skirts
[ ]mud flaps
[ ]gotta lower it a little
[ ]led glow for foot wells
[ ]brake cover or painted caliper
[ ]carbon fiber hood or just cf vent inserts
[x]plastidip some stuff

To be high tech:
[ ]upgrade sound system
[ ]touch screen navigation/entertainment system

Let me know what you guys think!

i've done pretty much all of the future mods you're looking to do. it'll look good if you go through with it. you should get the UICP and LICP because racecar

If you want to go faster, add a high flow cat + tune.

Cool! Racecar is a very good argument as well.

Thanks for the advice I will look into that.

I totally agree! I feel like it works really well with the black/chrome accents.

Does your brother in law have a lift in his house? Because that is the dream right there! I wish he was my brother in law!

That's actually my dad's garage/office that he just got built within the past year. He put in a lift so my brother in law could get some extra work. It is pretty amazing though! He's got like every tool imaginable.

He has been super busy since it was installed, but he's gonna help me out with my RA. He used to have an Evo and he modded the hell out of it. But then the kids came and then he had to sell it

Default new wheeeeels

So my passenger side tires got bubbles in them which apparently is a good sign they are about to explode. I took this opportunity to get new wheels along with the new tires.

They look about a billion times better than that terrible plasti dip job I did.



Also, you can see I got some neat ralliart decals for the spoiler and got the alloy fuel door. Its coming together quite nicely
