I am on lowering springs, I have the TEIN S-Techs which have the same spring rate as stock so that helps the ride. Eventually I want to replace them with some Ground Controls, with 10-20% Stiffer spring rate.

I will be swapping out the Megan Coilovers on my NA for these with Ground Controls that have an aggressive spring rate.
Great to hear! I will probably go with these for my TT car, as I have S-techs for it.

The S-Techs are a pretty minimal drop so did you trim the internal bump stops on the bilsteins at all?

Now about your NA, I am looking into suspension setups for mine as it is my autocross car. Its looking like bilsteins will not work on a FWD car as the rear shocks are the incorrect length. Is this correct?

I wish we had to option for Koni's....

Yeah I had a chance to buy a set of new unused tdo4 dnp manifolds a couple years back. For like 600 bucks. Wish I had. Considering the price of 3sx ones.

Looking now it doesn't appear there are bilstein options for the FWD Rears That sucks, I may have to look into it more...

KYB GR-2's aren't bad I had those... If your car has ECS I would just keep that though.... I'll have to figure out what I want to do. I am tired of Coilovers lol.

I am on TEIN Springs yes, no I didn't do anything with the bump stops.

The S-Techs, which is what I have, have a bigger drop then the H-Techs...
...


Had a long day at work (Felt longer then it actually was, just one of those days) Got together with some friends for Burgers, Wings, and Alcohol.

Yes the internal bump stops are cut on those struts.

Thanks Eric, I feel like that is the best I am going to get right now without really pushing the car too hard and risking causing damage to things. I'll head back when I get Chrome ECU, and Injectors so I can turn the boost up.

The nice thing about that drag strip, is it is open 7 Days a week almost everyweek through ought spring, summer, and mid fall. which is pretty cool... So plenty of opportunities to head back.

Now that Tax Season is officially over, and I got my 2nd Raise for the year, I can finally get back to making progress on my cars. Going to put in a nice order to 3SX, and some other places for parts this afternoon... Nothing overly exciting, I want to get a few things working, repaired, etc. before I chase more power.

My radiator fan crapped out on me, so I am going to buy two new stock fans, since they work so well, and try to get them to come on automatically like normal. I've been running them by switch for 2 years.

Also the wires on the Harness side of the Knock sensor are pretty bad, so I am going to replace that plug and repair the wires... The wire itself is in good shape, just the insulation is old, hard, and cracked exposing bare wire. So I will probably just strip all the insulation off it for a few inches, and put some thick heat shrink over it to avoid having to solder, or anything. adding solder, or crimp fittings on that stuff can really mess with the signal... Or so I've been told

I want this car to run and work like a factory car... So I should get it to that point before adding more power.
