Beautiful find man, love the color too! Lower it a little bit for even better handling and sporty looks

thanks!

next steps are the BFI and the audio system. My house is first position for "tuning"
Next year, i will drop lower the SC, maybe with Tanabe springs and install other headers, catalytic converters and remove the 3rd converter

HY!

Yesterday, i build the Intake

here pictures









i used 3 Visaton bass box ports with 64mm diameter and 24cm².



it was easy to make the holes with a 63mm holesaw







The sound is very nice, and not to loud

i can feel a better respond and 4500u/min upwards more power, the engine runs freer and faster up to the limiter

greets

Tom

Hy!

On Thursday, i changed the 225/40 R18 on the front wheels to 245/40 R18 its the correct diameter to the original 225/55 R16.

here the pictures:

left side 245, right side 225



mounted



and on the SC





looks much better!

i orderd for the new middle section from the exhaust system to remove the 3rd converter a 3" resonator with 10" long. Not more is needed



The car hifi is also on work

i changed the original amp to 2 seperat small amps and a active crossover and installed all on the original mounting rack.









original amp



i hope i find time on the weekend to finish the system

greets

Tom

I'm surprised you didn't want to go with a touchscreen since you were doing that work in the dash anyway. I'd pop a decent fold down, integrated DVD screen in there. Either way, though, it looks like you're doing all the work the right way. It's nice and clean.

HY!

My first idea was a double DIN radio, but i think, the display is in the night to bright and it blinds (right word?). my first choice was the kenwood radio, but i pay in austria ~ 1200 Dollar for this radio! this is to much. i had a ´01 RX300 and the navi screen was in the night to bright. this was not fine to drive.

The SC is only for nice weather and weekend, i need only a good radio in my car No DVD, no navi, maybe bluetooth was a good part from the newer radios, but, i don´t phone if i drive.

Monday or tuesday comes the USB Box instead the cd-changer and i can install complet the radio in the dash.
