Thanks man, yeah I have the AG springs you sold me, KYB excel-g's from ebay, that tibby sway bar you sold me, those window visors you sold me, the oil catch can you sold me, and wheels from my friends drift car(I payed 150 for all four with tires).

In all I spent about $455 in parts without new tires and about a $800 in installation, and alignment.

Does anyone have the wiring diagram from the elantra harness to tiburon V6?

Which ones are the same/work together?

Either its paint/dent removal next year, or buy a wrecked v6 tibby and try to figure out a swap.(I know a lot of people have talked about doing the swap, but I am just poking around at the idea)

I can set the frame rails about an inch from the ground.

I also cant go over speed bumps any more and also have to go really slow over any sort of bump, and go up driveways really slowly and sideways.

Pretty sure I'm low enough XD

Your car looks fantastic! Especially on that last pic with the headlights on. Finally got to see a real nice looking silver Elantra!

@ tiwtin

Thanks man, I saw pictures of yours, it looks really good!

Plus, I love the Aang avatar that you chose hahahah

Going to see if I can buy and install the Impreza lip on my car today before the car meet.

Impreza Lip on! It's an aftermarket one, I think chargespeed makes it.
Car meet pics



I met Cyrus Martinez the famous Pinoy drifter tonight, raced an RX8, and kicked back. You have to love SoCal car culture. The car got quite a bit of attention.

Sure think, sorry I dindnt even check my own exd thread hahaha

Yup, was going to wait to do one big update, as I am getting parts made for my car, but ill start with the small things I did.


Went on a drive through Mt. Baldy, my brakes were smoking on my car and my moms tucson half way through hahahaha

New lip for an integra put on, it looks pretty good and covers the damage from the crash
Front and rear tow hooks(when I was stuck on the side of a mountain they had trouble getting to the stock ones.


New muffler (the backwards silencer is a joke)



:)

Yeah, I might just do that, or since I need a new front bumper and GT bumpers are hard to come by I might just go with R34 front and sides. I really liked how good the sides looked on your car.
