loving the updates

re the engine, if your going to do it do it properly, vtec all the way, b or d imo

A vtec D doesnt have a that much more power than a non vtec d though, which im sure wont make a massive difference when boosted.

The B-series option is tempting but ive had 3 now and want to try something different, with this ek or not.

maybe i'll leave the d14 in it - maybe something else will find its way into the bay who knows

see how things go with the rest of the car for now.

suspension - ive been offered a set of tein super street coilovers, but i dont know how low these can drop. anyone used/or know someone who has used them?

with the car not going on the road for a couple of weeks atleast, i thought i'd give the Schmidts some good lovin' Very Happy



8mm Spined socket and ratchet, 10mm socket and ratchet from behind



few minutes later



gave the centre a pull and out she came






easy as pie. schmidts have got to be the easiest wheels to dismantle by far.
much easier than bb's, due to the face not being captive by the lip like bbs's and most jdm split rims.
The schmidts faces come away first leaving the lip still sealed to the basket.
gave it a clean and its ready to be sent to the shop for polishing



sending just the one for now to see the results

the centre got sent to the shop today for the rear to be shot blasted and the spokes to be shot blasted too.
Then the face will be all polished

couple of packages came today :-)
Short Boss

way better quality than i expected. along with the NRG snap off boss it makes the setup the same length as a normal fixed momo boss

and my Muteki SR48'S
went for the 20 pack, 4 spare just incase Razz


Also the Schmidt centres have been all sent to get the rear & spokes shotblasted, should be ready by tommorrow to be sent for the faces to be polished.
They so didnt need a refurb, being really anal about them

18 each.
not sure on how mucht the polishing will be yet but he's usually cheap enough. same guy that did my HKS Hard Pipes on the teg & my Whiteline Strut Brace for the S2000 (which im wanting more and MORE!!) end of the year now i think that will be.
