Did some small things: installed new rear hubs / extended studs, coolant flush and oil change. Going to roll the rear fenders in order to accommodate 12mm spacers in the rear.

Also looked into the ABS CEL I've had for a while. The code fault was #11, indicating an open/short to the front right sensor. Didn't get a resistance reading at the ABS harness so I tore off the fender liner and investigated the wire. Strangely enough I am getting 1.4kohms directly after the sensor but at the connector above the liner I am getting nothing. Looks like I have to replace that section of wire, I'm glad it looks like it's not the sensor itself.

And finally, installed the ETS short route UICP. Looks cleannnnn

It's been a while, but still having fun tweaking the Evo. Recently picked up a NA Miata which has been taking up some time, as well as helping out with my bro's RX7.

We took the FD to Formula Drift ATL, which was badass.


Anyways, here's how the summer started:


Window trim started to bug me:


Replaced it:



Now, if you have a good eye, you'd notice the car is on stock wheels. Eek. Sold the TEs, more on that later.

Picked up a Voltex spoiler:


Picked up some Greddy goodies:


Installed DC3 catchcans, will clean this up a bit later:


So about the TEs - I really got fixated on Advan RGs. Searched for what felt like forever to pick up this immaculate set of BNIB RG-Ds, sitting on top of another recent addition - Bride Zeta iii Gradations (thanks alex!)



Installed the Brides, they are mint:




Really excited for the changes, can't wait to see the RGs mounted.
