The bottom of your car now looks like it was on the losing end of a gay porn.


I'm just kidding, it looks good.

I would have taken off the hard lines before paint. But other than that, looks good.

If it was a gay porn wouldn't that be the winning end? Looks good I am going to have to do that too but o was thinking of using truck bed liner to seal it against rust and other shit.

Bolted up gas tank, installed pbm subframe risers. The fitment with these things is insanely tight, im gonna have to sand off the paint off the studs from the chassis and possibly "tweak" them also for a good fitment.








and why they raise your subframe/lower your car AT THE SAME TIME cheers !

Nice, looks pretty good. I need to find myself a set of solid subframe bushings for my hatch.

You are inspiring me to pull apart the ass end of my car and clean it up. It's long overdue...

word of advice when you go to pull the old bushing out, I found it easier to heat up the inner "metal rod" and pound it out then just use a sawzall and make 4 cuts around the old bushing/metal collar and POUND IT OUT with a Large socket. It was a breeze instead of waiting for everything to burn out.

Not to bash the waste gate either. But, i think your going find that youll have issues getting it to fit with out hitting the shock tower.

I had a turbo xs one that looked identicle to it. Ended up selling it and buying an ebay one that was much shorter to clear the shock tower. But you can always run an extension and mount it elsewhere.
