  1. Nice, intake pipe looks a bit... blue? How many stages are there btw?
  2. Why runflats? They generally ride horribly and cost $$$
  3. Costco loading area was quiet, so took some pics.... Not sure if I have added this here, but got the rear calipers replaced and brake fluid flushed because the RR caliper failed on my and started to slightly catch fire. Lost a centre cap in the process, and they're back ordered until June (Thanks Titan7....) Other than that, the new exhaust is really nice and barely louder than stock until you got WOT above ~6k RPM. And I *really* need to get those bushings/mounts replaced because its getting tough to be smooth between gearshifts with the flobbery diff/engine/trans mounts.
  4. Feels a bit like "Hey don't forget this sci-fi is still coming out" while Dune 2 is dominating the box office
  5. Lol very accurate, the car kinda sucks with the top up. I've done top down in the snow before, it's fun honestly.
  6. Yeah I'm going a bit OCD with this car. I go so far to clean and apply a spray-on ceramic underneath the car ever year. I did replace the kick panel because it's common for sand to gather in the 'S2000' logo and scratch it up if you don't care for it. This plastic piece alone was $400... So far in the winter I have: - New Koyorad radiator - New kick panels - New exhaust - New under bracing - Copper anti-sieze on all underchassis bolts - Replaced all the clips (very satisfying because the fender liners, etc. become super secure) - New Recaro PP in the driver side - Replaced access clips/plugs in the cabin - Coolant/oil drain and refill. - Adjusted handbrake tension - Replaced brake/clutch fluid Just ordered ID1050x injectors and have a new fuel pump carrier and Warlbro 255LPH ready to install - stock injectors are on the way out and I am very not comfortable hitting 97% duty cycle beyond 8k RPM. Then, new bushings and mounts all-around are the next order of business along with a new waterpump and Fluidampr crank pulley. I want this to be in as good of condition as possible. I have rather unrealistic standards too I have been debating if long-term I want to go stand-alone ECU (Haltech, for example) with a custom screen instead of the OEM dash.... but thats for later.
  7. Uh oh..... Well, had to remove basically the entire front end to properly secure the lower front rad hose but at least it's done properly now.
  8. Also for fun, this is how the engine bay looked when I first got the car:
  9. New Koyorad installed and coolant flushed. Now just need to start it finally for spring this year to make sure all it is all working.
  10. New front X brace and diff brace in, and changed the oil at the same time. Only need to replace the radiator and install the stiffened brake pedal then my winter upgrades will be complete.
  11. Installed the Legalis R today, was actually a lot easier than I thought. Still need to do some of the braces underneath, but that's for another day. It shaves off around 4-5kg, and should sound oem+ Old exhaust out Side by side In it goes... Installed
  12. Finally got the exhaust! Now to struggle to remove the stock exhaust, can't wait
  13. Honestly - not that much. Seat+rail is like 12-15kg total. The stock seat+rail is ~16-17kg. These were very difficult to install, as is expected with near zero space around them. I couldn't torque it, so just did guduntite. These are more comfortable, look nicer, easier to clean+maintain, and most importantly actually hold you in. Wish it didn't have 'RECARO' in big letters, but of all the name brand bucket seats at least their name/logo is all right. Yes, thanks. My exhaust actually just arrived, so I need to go pick it up. I'll do exhaust -> spoon subframe and trans braces -> koyo rad. Replacing the oil somewhere in between there.
