Couple recent updates. Added the Dicunzolo mounts. Also started working on my stance. 20mm spacers and rear camber bolts (btw I'm aware not everyone likes spacers). Like how it's coming out.

I will find out this weekend when all 4 are installed. So far the one I have completed does not look like it will have issues.

Remember to have 4 people in the car if possible.

Hey its ok to do that. Just look at the NFL draft draftees house video shots. No COVID where they are thats for sure.

Rear spacers are done and camber bolts are in. I removed as much negative camber as the bolts would allow. Admittedly I measured for these spacers before the springs went in and 20mm would have been perfect flush, but with the bit of extra camber they're just inside. Still looks way better compared to before in person.

Yes, stock studs. I did have to grind them all down. Ended up doing it at a 45 degree angle from the center of the stud to just before the threads start. The wheel pockets would hit just on the outside of the stud. This of course was with the MKS wheels so not sure what would be needed on other wheels sets.

All finished up with the front spacers. 20mm lined up just right IMO. Didn't even need to roll the fender. Now it's officially at the OEM+ stance.

Took the first official runs of the season. DA was around 8700 so the results were less than great, but it was good to get a better feel for the car in controlled conditions. This is on an e30 tune. Didn't have wheel spin that I could tell. Got 4 runs in. Best 1/4 of 13.567. Used the Dragy as well and they were pretty damn similar on times, mph was off by a few. Best Dragy time I ever got earlier this year on back roads was 13.1 at 4000DA so hope later this year I can get back to that.

Glad the track is open!

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

Quick update.

Been enjoying the car in its current form for a couple months now. Have driven thousands of miles with no issues. Springs are settling into their lowest level now. Still a stiff ride for sure, but I'm mostly used to it. The one consistent thing is the PTU leaking fluid all over the exhaust from the rear seal so for now I have been topping it off until I'm in the mood to replace it or it forces my hand. Put a new spoiler on it earlier this week to complete the rear end look. Also just ordered the XDI-35 today and stoked to put that in ASAP.
