Narrow/stretched tire 245/35/19

I have the same camber and fender work (roll and pull) that I've had on the last two sets of wheels, the NT03 18x9.5 +27/+40 with 255/35 and Varrstoen 18x9.5 +22 with 245/40.

Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

What I did over the weekend.

I think it took around 10 hours total Had to stop on day one since I needed some tools. All work was done by myself, which made things a little more time consuming.

Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

Made a little bit of progress today, more importantly cleaned the garage so the wife could park in it. Pulled the harness and intake manifold as a complete unit (which is for sale :)).

EJs sucks! Sorry to hear about your motor man, been there - done that. 3MI will do a great job though! Are you going with one of their long-rod builds?

I am. Micah has my heads now and they will be getting a small treatment at Headgames before being bolted up to a 2.35. :)

Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

I'm done with the car as far as installing anything. Once the motor goes in, all the parts I have stock piled will be going in at the same time, and Andrewtech will be doing the install. Then it's time to drive it and leave it alone. :)

I'm just now getting the motor back in, so it's going to the shop. Picking up the new motor tomorrow. :lol:

Picked up the motor the day after my last post. Dropped it off at the shop on Monday, and he's how it's looking as of earlier today.



Tentatively have a break in tune set for this Friday, pending if the motor is in and running.
