Dude, I think that same weekend, if possible, I will install my new wheels too...I'm just waiting on a hot enough day for paint
Amen lol. Today was the first nice day in forever. 17c OMG
Another week of that and we should be good to go!

Front lip/rear diffuser/rear lips ordered.

Went with the HT Auto stuff. Urethane just made more sense living in Montreal.

The diffuser is the only one that I like in photos, even over the far more expensive stuff.

The front lip looks the nicest with the two sharp pointy sections; reminds me of an Aventador's front lines lol. I just hope it fits perfect, no gaps.

Rear lips will compliment the diffuser.

Skipped the side skirts. Something tells me it look nicer without. If they missing will get them after the fact.

Will probably paint em all OBP of the default color is not nice.


Front Lip:



Diffuser:

Weather is finally nice, got some time in today doing some spring cleaning.

I like to end the winter by getting rid of the scratches, before doing a polish and wax.

And man oh man there were a lot of scratches this year.

Good thing there is my trusty friend, the 3M scratch removal system:



Gets rid of all but the deepest scratches. If your fingernail gets caught in the scratch, this

kit will likely not help.

Took a few shots afterwards with my new camera, that I have not had the chance to use much yet:







Started my research into my eventual engine rebuilt+turbo upgrade. And wow there is a lot of info to absorb.

I know my goal: 370-400whp, very fast spool, and reliable.
This is my daily driver, and I don't want a ride that demands constant
attention, or annoyingly frequent maintenance. Will likely keep a TMIC setup.
Will need a new manifold, headers, amongst other things. Budget will be around 10k.

Will work backwards from my goal.

The Lachute Perf. AK2 short block seems to be the way to go, with a few other additions.

-TGV deletes?
-Forged/balanced crankshaft?
-Oil Separator?
-crankshaft?
-flywheel?
-cosworth high volume manifold?

Turbo wise, it seems that with the fast spool goal I am looking for, a twin scroll
setup seems to be the way to go. Apparently it is more pricey; have to figure
out if it is worth the faster spool payoff.

-dom1.5-xtr ts?
-BorgWarner EFR 7670 Turbo?
-GTX3076R? (not ts)?

The research has begun. Objective is to do this next summer.

A small detail, but today some new STI key chains arrived in the mail

Think I will rock the carbon fibre one on my more used keychain;
the metal one has sharp edges, and might get a little 'stabby' from time to time.

Just read through your whole thread. Great car, great work! It's awesome to see someone else with similar goals/circumstances as me who puts good time and thought into it. Plus i can certainly relate to the challenges of a young family and having the time and resources to play around with your car (my daughter just turned 1 this past weekend).

Looks like you guys have a good little group up there. I try to get to Montreal/Quebec City at least once a year (usually for F1 weekend unless the wife wants to take a trip) so maybe we can get a little meet going sometime. I'd love to meet you guys and see your cars.

PS, start thinking about picking up side skirts. I think you'll want them once you get the lip and diffuser on.
