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 :rolleyes:

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.

I installed the stock fans. It looks like it runs a little cooler, but ambient temps is 75 degrees. It should be warmer on the commute back home from work.

The car ran 10 degrees cooler with the stock fans. It never went past 195 degrees @ 84 degrees ambient today. The Mishimoto fans got as high as 217 @ 84 degrees ambient.
