I guess I need to update this, lots of parts put on in the last year and a half....
I don’t track my car, work and life gets in the way most of the time, but on those occasions I find a nice, curvy mountain road I do really enjoy hitting the corners pretty hard, and freeway onramps are some of my favorite things. I have had the car for about a year and a half now, and it’s almost as fun to drive as some of my old muscle cars.
I know most members here put what they have done to their cars in their showoffs, so I figured I would jump on the bandwagon and do the same.
2005 black Spec V
XS Power 4-1 3 piece header system. Wish some of the better headers were available still, but I had to get rid of the precat.
Magnaflow catback (I think, it was on the car when I bought it, and it has a Magnaflow muffler on it).
Black painted stock rims.
Titanium Nismo shift knob (hotter than a high dollar whore after setting in the South Carolina sun for a day).
Throttle body bypass.
No short shifter.
2J Turcite shifter bushings.
2J rear sway bar (full stiff, for those that wonder about such things).
Eibach front sway bar.
2J control arms with Superpro bushings.
Home made SRI/CAI depending on my mood and the weather that week.
BC 6K coilovers, recommended by Sensei Joe, usually set ten clicks from full stiff unless I am driving my lady somewhere, then its full stiff for the booby bounce factor.
2J 10mm ALK.
Prothane front and rear motor mounts. More vibration than I thought, I need to get my idle bumped up a bit.
Robs wheel hop aid.
Shaved emblems (all but the 'spec v', I left them alone).
BS chain cut.
2J crank pulley.
And, due to a tire carcass on the interstate, a new front bumper cover and foglights still waiting for paint... it took my Mach 1 lip with it when I hit the damn thing at 65mph at 5am... see what happens when you actually slow down to the speed limit?
Yet to be done:
2J offset trailing arm bushings.(done)
2J bump steer kit when it comes in.(done)
2J xmember bushings (done)
Then I am out of parts for now.....
Parts I have laying around collecting spiders and dust:
Warped tanabe underbrace.
2J aluminum shifter bushings.
2J brass shifter bushings.
Eibach rear sway bar.
Stock Spec front sway bar.
Stock Spec front and rear struts with approx 60K miles.
Stock Spec springs.
Sprint lowering springs.... Bought used, hated them. Replaced with BC’s. These were so bad I can’t in good faith bring myself to actually sell them to anyone...
Nismo gen 2 short shifter, soon to be reinstalled when I get my lazy ass motivated to do some machine work on the Turcite shift bushings.
Axtion gen 2 short shifter, may install it instead of the nismo, I need to modify it to have a bolt like the nismo does on the transmission linkage mount.
Passenger fog lamp with broken bumper cover bracket.
