The day I brought the X home......unmolested
then I installed a cf lip, diffuser, fender vents, and powder coated stock wheels
Then I blacked the tails
Took the spoiler off and decided I liked the wingless look
Then installed the cf center bumper cover
Then installed boost gauge, FMIC, UICP, intake, exhaust, and BOV
CF hood, canards, and skirt extensions
Next was DL style trunk, RA tails, and shorty antenna
Then I got everything powder coated to make the bay look all pretty
Then I went and got it tuned at COBB surgeline in Portland Oregon. Made 357whp and I can't remember the torque lol but it was something like 360wtq
this is hollywood at surgeline with me, wearing his skirt lol
Then I got married and my beautiful wife got this made for me
New wheels and eibach pro kit installed
2010 SRRSCCA AutoX Champion

New wheels, coilovers, and gtc-300 installed
Only pic I could find
My son wants my car when he's old enough
Tow hook and front splitter installed
Fender rolling action
Ready for racing and another car show
I custom fitted the extra buttons on the ASC panel to hold the switches for the lights
If you guys want to get your lights retrofitted for a great price and great quality, PM me
After that my rear diff took a shit. The good folks at Jacks Transmissions hooked me up with pretty much a brand new one for a fraction of what the dealership wanted. The dealer said 4400 to replace lol. I also figured, why the hell not send those dudes my tranny as well. So i did.
Rear diff with a peep hole
BIG THANKS TO JACKS TRANSMISSIONS FOR A JOB WELL DONE AND GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.
Here is what my car looks like today

The parts never seem to quit rolling in. I have some other pics as well but those will have to wait till I get off work. This will do for now
Brand new 3.5 inch Speedcircuit intake powdercoated white. Im going to change the theme up a little in the engine bay so bear with it for now
Here it is getting ready to go in.....but I failed and forgot to buy some shit
Got everything needed. Motor is in and ready to start up. But somehow I fucked everything up and the car is now in "fuck you, Joey" aka, immobilizer mode. FML

Car has 24,352 on the odo. Need to trace an oil leak and then I will have these break in miles behind me. On a positive note, the exedy twin feels amazing.
Rear diff is toast because of a simple mistake. I'm pissed cause I didn't fuck it up, but what can you do? I guess, fix it.......again.
Since the diff is out and waiting for parts, I decided that I would install all the rest of my other shit. Just installed the SSP catch can. What a pain in the ass that was. It didn't take long, but it was just dumb lol. Removing the stock bracket from the beam to getting the fitting in the exhaust side. Hopefully I have it installed right lol
Got the can for a killer deal from insane_DOHC
Old beam off
Catch can on
Lines routed and installed.
Depot Racing oil pressure gauge installed. Working on getting a triple pillar made so I can stuff that gauge away and get it cleaned up a bit.
