Those bolts F'n suck. Mine sheared off, had to weld a nut on and torch them out slowly with a wrench.
I just grinded it off and replaced it with another crossmember. It was like $40 so I can complain and if I ever need some $ I'll drill out the other one and resell it ha. Probably just going to scrap it though because I don't want to take the time.

This space needs an update!!
Not much has been done! I deblacked everything (rims, turning signals, and brake lights) for the time being just to change things up.

Also put some tips on while I fixed my home-made dual exhaust exitting (left is facing outwards too much)
Went from this:


To this:


I don't have much else planned out for a while due to the harsh weather!

Put a bumper lip on today. I tore off the stock piece of plastic on the underside on a curb so I took the opportunity to try something out!

Not too shabby!

Looking good... Catch can work? These engines love to suck in the engine oil from the ventilation system.

I like to tease and say it's a high performance thing... :D

Yeah it works great, at least as far as I can tell. I checked it since it was installed around a week ago, but no oil has accumulated what so ever. So that's good at least. Also painted that to match everything.

Well today I got a bill for $554 from college so it looks as if future mods are put on hold. Out of anger I decided to jump and try something a little weird and want to show you guys.

I took my dremel and bored down the outside of my spare throttle body to be essentially flush so the air entering isn't restricted by that hill. It's still 68 mm, but if anything it should be a free mod, with the exception of some dremel sanding bits I already had.




Still kind of a mock up. Need to polish it down to a smoother finish before it'd be ready, but I suppose it isn't that bad, better than a stock set-up would be I would assume. If anything I can still send my other throttle body off and get it bored out.

Well I installed the bore matched throttle body, but I haven't been able to tell much of a difference. Idles slightly higher, which is probably because of the sensor being cleaned up. I'm assuming that'll go down over time. It's only about a 100 over normal idle. I'll have to take it out for a test run tonight and see if butt dyno can tell anything. Also in 2004 did they change the tb plate to a silvery metal? When I pulled it out compared to the one that was going in it seemed different because the other is a brass color as you can see

I've always known them to be the brass color... But I recall a 04 one being silver for some reason.. I'll have to check my spare one downstairs!

How does she feel when the turbo-v-tech kicks in now?
