Yeah, I laughed at that. Must've just let off the gas.

There was too much traffic ahead to find out what the speed limiter is set at. I will soon enough.

Talked the wife into getting one last year. She ended up loving it. I want to play with it but she says I have to wait till the warranty is up..... only 25k miles or so left.

Im just having fun with mods right now. You guys all know me.....

Little bit of chrome, little bit of silver, both to break up all the "white".

Better tires!!! GoodYear tires just arent what they used to be. Kumho Solus TA71s were a good compromise. Quiet, good handling.

Got me a Nav unit to install.... Just waiting to hear back from a vendor that can reprogram these modern radios. (Thanks again for all the insight Nate!)

Had to buy a new DPF pressure differential sensor. Big f-ing deal....$26 and easy as hell to install. Runs great and Im having fun driving it and passing people on the freeway.
The car really likes 80mph, too.


God, I am sick.....

The only expensive thing on them would be the fuel filter. Kinda nerve racking unscrewing that plastic housing. I found some on ebay for around 90.00 one time. Strange location as well.

I know. WTF were they thinking putting it UNDER the car? Mechanic at work has one and said he had an issue with it freezing up last winter.
Id love to find a way to bring the filter up into the engine bay.
Considering the long recommended change intervals, though....Im going to have the dealer do that job.

So, I put 235/50/17 Kumhos on the car a week ago, and the touchy steering went away for the most part.
Found out on CompD that the speed limiter is 124mph.
Going to have to find that out for myself.

Also found BadNewsRacing's website. Holee shit! Sway bars, coil overs, lowering kits, strut braces.... I could have a field day there.
Have....to....maintain....control....

Im probably going to buy some "lightweight" parts and OZ tuning from Brayden come Christmas, as a present to myself. Also talked to Levi about turbo and downpipe blankets to eliminate a lot of that underhood heat.

Just having fun driving this little torque monster. Definitely going with Fleece this Christmas.

Previous owner hadnt changed the air filter or cabin filter. They were both pretty bad.

Nav unit shows up Monday from Specmo. Here's hoping it works.

After much debate, ended up going with Trifecta to keep the emissions for the time being.
Other than another issue with a sensor code (which I shouldve fixed myself like the first one ), I havent had one issue with the engine, so I decided not to touch it yet.

But ya know, an extra 50hp really does wake these little cars up.
TCM tuning makes the shifting/driving far more enjoyable, too. No more hunting and the weird "neutral at stop" is gone.




BBT just sits there in the driveway, covered in snow.....its sad....
