I have posted lots of pics as I go along but I have never officially created a journal, so here goes. I got the car in August of '04, CGM w/ Silver Wheels. Here she is in stock form:



you can see in this pic that the temp tags are still on...she was just a virgin.



My first mod was a Passport 8500 X50. I hardwired it...



...and soon made a custom mute button integrated into the stock switch blank.



My next mod was a set of Defi gauges (Boost, EGT, Oil Press.) in a Defi pod. I wanted to make sure I had a means of monitoring my engine before modifying it.



I was also very underwhelmed by the factory stereo, so I decided to do some upgrades. I began with a Kenwood DDX7015...



...and a set of MB Quart PCE-216s powered by a Phoenix Gold amp.



I also put Dynamat in all 4 doors. The difference was amazing, now it sounds great!

So as it stood, my car looked like this on the outside:



pretty much stock. As you can see, I put snow tires on my stock wheels, intending to use them as my winter wheels. So when Spring rolled around, I needed something else...I picked up a set of 5Zigen FN01R-C's in 18x8.5 +48 and mounted 245/35/18 Goodyear Eagle F1's.





They looked great, but something was wrong...I drive a car, not an SUV! It was time for some suspension work! So I bought these.



Whiteline Group 4 coilovers. Here's a shot of one next to my stock strut. What a difference!



I installed them and took my first drive...and I loved them! Instant difference.

I also installed a RavSpec S203 replica lip. Here was my stance, MUCH BETTER!







At this point, the car looked and handled great, but I needed more power. I had been running the Stg. 1 Cobb AP map for awhile but it wasn't nearly enough. So I bought this:

APS 3" catted TBE. It sounded great, and after switching to the Stg. 2 map, the car was a new beast!

However, I made the decision that I wasn't quite done with suspension mods, so I added one of these as well:



Whiteline X3006 27-29mm front swaybar. Here it is compared to the stocker.



This made a HUGE difference in turn-in and corner stability, definitely one of my favorite mods!

After awhile, I decided the Stg. 2 map wasn't cutting it, but I wasn't ready to do a turbo upgrade yet. So I made a few more mods to the engine to try to extract as much power as I could from the stock turbo. First was an APS CAI:



I also threw on a Greddy Strut Tower Brace at the same time.



Then came the APS equal length header:



Before installing the header I had it, along with the included uppipe and my turbo heatshield, coated by Jet-Hot:







After installing the header, along with a Prodrive 3-port boost solenoid, I went to Agile Auto for a Protune.







And here was the result:



312whp and 340wtq! I was extremely pleased with the numbers, big thanks to Hill and everyone else at Agile!

Here are some shots I took this year before going into winter mode:







Then I took off my 5Zigens and replaced them with a set of 17" bronze Rota Torques with Pirelli Winter 240 Snowsports.







Unfortunately, I broke my CF lip, so that came off as well. After taking my 5Zigens off, I decided to sell them, so here they are waiting to be picked up by their new owner.



I will be ordering a new set of wheels this week, so I'll have a fresh new look in the Spring!

And here are a couple of small mods I have done along the way:

Redline shift boot, e-brake boot, and armrest cover in black leather w/ red stitching.





Blue Batmobile taillight overlays.




Stay tuned, I have LOTS of plans for the upcoming months, including new wheels and more engine/suspension mods!

for sure, I'm in Ohio at school right now but I'll be home for the middle 2 weeks of March for spring break and then from mid-May onward for the summer. When I'm home, I'm all about meets, we definitely need to organize more of them in the future.
