So. Aghh I'm getting frustrated. Crank not balanced yet. Shops machine has some issues and is just now able to balance crank. In the meantime, chime in what do I need for pcv/vented valve covers setup. You can rest assured ill need it regularly running 25 + psi. Any pics or diagrams would be greatly appreciated.

You'll have to ask Matt for sure. I didn't clarify with him about running the big and small krank vents on a bigger turbo setup. I never pushed the boost as high on a bigger turbo setup when I had both krank vents installed to know if the big one became an issue.

On my TD04s I had to run the small krank vent only because the big one wouldn't provide enough air in the crank case through the stock air bubble to keep too much pressure from building up. It sounded like what Matt said is to run both krank vents, T off the timing belt side front to rear valve cover tube, stick a small krank vent inline if you still wanted to create a vacuum, and then attach the hose to a catch can. He said it's what he did for all high hp big turbo cars. You'll have to ask him about using the big one off the lower intake. It should be fine since bigger turbos will drain better than a small TD04.

What about ignition/coil packs. Are stock adequat for 600-700whp? Should I at least upgrade plugs? I'm just wanting to get these small things buttoned up so I can have it ready upon reassembly.

OEM coil packs/PTU/plug wires. MSDs work good too. If you aren't sure if the PTU and coil packs were replaced within the past two years with new ones I would go ahead and do it. You can always test them too.

I'm running new OEM PTU/coil pack, MSD wires, and NGK non-projected tip 2 step colder plugs gapped .028" with an HKS DLI up to 31 psi. Until I get the flashed ecu installed and maybe some more maintenance items I won't be turning it up further. With a new ignition I was fine to 24/25 psi on ethanol without spark plug blowout. Some can't make it past 20. A new ignition is definitely not something to skimp on.

And I test fitted some nitto 555's in a 275 40 18
They looked sick and meaty, but "barely" cleared my tein stock tower. I'm gonna opt for some 285 35 18 instead. 11.4 inches across and slightly smaller diameter than in these pics.

And I removed and replaced the sail panels today and spoiler with the hoop. I'm "on the fence" about the hoop. I like the nostalgia of the aero, but like the hoop. Heck, i really don't care for the combat in person, but I feel like on a black car it may appear more mild and subtle... Input?

As far as wheels go, I'm kinda sold on a cheap set of xxr522's after I get the paint redone. They just look damn solid on a vr4

So. I got a wild hair today and started cutting up my seibon hood. I've never really cared for the appearance of the vent placements. I'm aiming for the look of the NSX deep dip down look in the middle. But obviously it can't be that deep bc of the engine placement. I'm also notching and setting the drivers side vent down lower so I can access fresh air better to the intake, without having to look non symmetrical visually from the passengers scoop. I've had some various body kit stuff I've had sitting around to help me get the angles I need to do it. The evil eye area I intend on doing two humps over each headlamp to accommodate and blend into the 99's. has anyone successfully hinged their hood in the front? Just to do something different?

Does anyone have a pic with 2nd gen sideskirts molded with the "slit" taken out? Does it look good/bad?

Like this spare sideskirt I started cutting on. I was just hoping for a finished pic already painted so I had an idea before I started plastic welding one.
