I've got Koni adjustable coilovers. It's sitting at a nice height, but the 40ET is kinda, eh. Jon wanted spacers because he was rubbing his coils, I'm barely touching so I might be OK. We'll see when I take the car to smog.

My understanding is that you can use the MkIV hydro lifters as a direct swap for some additional weight reduction. Definitely a bonus with a bigger cam. What kind of condition are your valve springs in? Valve stem seals? It's a good time to do it all at once...

I got a bubble in one of my tires on the RXs, so I threw the Centras on the mk3. The lighting was bad being the end of the day, so please forgive the funky angles.

Now you just gotta get down to the bay area so we can put on your big bumpers!

Oh, you should order some big bumper clips for the front end.... gonna need em. Chopped mine down to accomidate the small bumpers :)

As for my mods:
Finally got the a/c bolts i needed. Pulley side went in perfect, other side, not so good. Appears as tho at some point the bolt was torqued down too much and it snapped the head off, so I cant get a bolt in there without drilling it out and re-tapping. Oh well, at least the pulley side is nice and tight.

Scored some small bumper turn signals from pick n pull, as well as the final piece of under dash trim I needed. Love having a wife w/ a big purse that likes going to pick n pull. Now all I need is a 16v lip.
