I really love the lip, but my ultimate goal is an amuse lip so may be selling this one soon- i had an amuse lip before and sold it because the roads were too bad in Mass- now i live in Texas so can get away with it!

suspension arrived at my buddies shop in Japan- specV bilsteins. Ill be using the kw coilover sleeve kit with these. Very excited. From what people have told me and from my research these will be the equivalent to driving in R-mode all the time. Also looks like original shipping label came from nismo (likely before they moved locations to Yokohama). Sold my oem shocks few years back when switching to coilovers so will need the oem strut top mounts if anyone has a set please pm!

Note: no idea why pics showing upside down

Front suspension installed with SpecV bilsteins with kw sleeve kit. Most adjust to about 1”- i started with 0.75” and car is slammed so ill be adjusting- either i measured wrong or the specVs are slightly lower to start. Car feels solid and not nearly as back breaking stiff as i expected. Installed eibach sways as well- removed Swift bars. Waiting on 1 rear strut mount to install rears- dealer had to order. Will post pics installed once height sorted.

Also installed oem trunk pull.

Update: added a pic of stance after install- can see the DUB look- not for me. Plus it rubbed pretty good when turning over bumps

Some parts waiting in the wings until all the suspension is worked out. Alignment tomorrow. Working out the ride height currently but the specv bilsteins are stiff but not bone crushing stiff like the coilovers. Car feels very planted.

Bought the entire mines bolt on package from bifmalibu. Includes Mines intake manifold, high flow throttle bodies, titanium ic piping top/bottom, ti inlets, and ti intakes. Very excited as this is my dream engine setup. Will likely send the car to jotech toward end of summer for install/custom tune along with updated bellhousing. Likely will do PWR radiator and samco coolant hoses too.

For now i sit in quarantine and drool
