Got my centric 5 lug rotors, new pads, and new timken wheel bearings in!

Protip: Melvin the cat is always there to investigate empty boxes to insure no parts are forgotten.

Spent 3 hours diagnosing why my speedometer wasn't working. In a bit of rage I chopped off the connector and soldered the wires together. Now it works, and half my dash is torn apart. It's always the little shit.

Anyways.

Donk status.

White TEs so good. Tires look cool too. Must be awesome to find such a clean chassis to work from!

That's what fortune auto recommend for a stock s13 that's just a weekend car. I had stance gr+ on my s14 and they were horrible. Really really stiff and just terrible ride quality. I can always upgrade to 9k/8k swift without revalving

I do feel rather blessed to have found such a nice car! It's a cool change of pace to have parts just fall off after unbolting. Not sitting there for 4 hours hammering a knuckle haha

Installed my Fortune Auto 500's and I must say these are absolutely the best coilover I have ever had. They are super smooth and the dampening is fantastic. Paired with my wheel and tire combo I have extreme confidence throughout hard cornering.







Face down ass up



Roxy's ready for a ride







To whom it may concern: These can go much lower! This is at 2" from collar to collar front. I'm working on making some more room in the fender well currently. Not interested in going lower. With the max amount of camber up front the inside shoulder of the tire is 3 times as hot as the outside.

Oh and I acquired my first Type X part.

Ever since I did my manual swap I've had a check engine light. I think it was just bad timing. I had code 34 and 15 or whatever it was for speedo. Fixed the speedo and knock sensor and the cel went away for like an hour and came back... Why would code 34 keep coming back? All oem uncut wiring so I'm pretty sure it's not a shielding issue.

Did some spirited driving with a friend up to the top of south mountain. Really impressed with the Nitto NT05's, very sticky. The Miata has them as well.









Ordering the rest of the aero next week then it's off to paint.
