      We moved recently and I finally had time to wash both my cars and grab some phone pictures. There goes the neighborhood 🤐

          Replaced alternator, found out new alternator was making a terrible noise, put old alternator in, no noise, reinstalled new one to see if I fucked it up, noise still there, take OE alternator to be rebuilt, replace with that, be mad that I bought aftermarket junk instead of rebuilding in the first place.

              Not sure tbh. I just got whatever wasn't going to take 6 weeks. Probably some Alibaba bullshit from a local parts supplier.

                  The Clubsport wing is such a good touch to your car. Well done. Risers planned?

                  Post the dry ice stuff!

                    Yes, risers eventually.

                          This looks great! Where did you have the dry ice blasting done? Southern California?

                        Retune with new headlight duct netted some very good results across the board with a max +24KW/32hp gain; the old duct from the OE location and brake/fog bumper locations wasn't really working that effectively as it turns out. Inconvenient that it needs to be swapped over at track as i generally drive to/from but worth it. Now to wait for next track day!

                        Quick rundown;

                        S50B32
                        Mild 1303614 CatCams
                        Supertech OS catalogue, Ported, Radius'd etc
                        Modded MAC Motoren airbox
                        Usual bottom end work/strengthening/proofing
                        Emtron KV8 - TMF tune, + a billion sensors/component changes
                        DBW (E46), custom mounting/linkage etc

                        Its a Mainline Dynolog, lets not get into dyno number/machine debate 😆

                        Apologies on pic size, that's max size before i reach limit
