Where are you getting the front windshield tinted at and how much would it cost if I may ask? Is it noticeable because I know SoCal does not allow the front to be tinted.

I have not looked around yet. I got my last windshield done in Vegas. I might go there again if I can't find some place that is willing.

I did an oil change with AMSOIL 0w40 and a tire rotation. The tires are almost done. The tires were chewed up badly prior to the wheel alignment. I do like my Bridgestone S04 Potenza Pole Position tires, but want to give the new Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 aka Bridgestone RE003 a try. I'm thinking of going 265 35 18.

Were you in Mira mesa tonight? I saw your car parked and I knew it looked familiar. I was in the blue 2016 sti with the bronze wheels. I live right there a few houses down from where you were parked. Car looks super clean in person.

Yup. That was me. That area is my old neighborhood. And thanks!

Hey I didn't see this in your post about the anti-surge boost controller from Company 23, but how are you liking it? Does it actually do away with the wastegate flutter?

I don't have any wastegate flutter with the Company 23. The old grimmspeed had a hint of it with the IWG. I do think it's overpriced, though.

Yeah, it's so expensive! It's 8% off today at Rally Sport, and even then, it's still pricey. I just know I will go EWG soon and I don't want to deal with that flutter. I have it on another car of mine and I hate it.

It's only money right

I pulled my oem radiator fans out of the storage and I'm going to see if will be better at cooling, which I think it is.

There's a place in Encinitas called Mr. Tint that carries Llumar Air Blue 80 tint. it's pretty much not noticeable and I believe is pretty effective. At least from what I hear. I got quoted $180 for front windshield only though, which is pretty steep.
