I would second that you just end up having to grind down the rust on the side of the hubs and paint them later if you don't do it at first. If you get the right color silver you can hardly tell its painted once its done.

Yes, do it. Use black or any color you want. Centric rotors (stoptech sister brand) paints their hubs black.

Upgraded tail lights up to 95-96 style.....I actually prefer this year over 97-00....



Before with 92 Tails..



Left 92 & Right 95...FYI the trunk isnt latched so it is up a little higher on the right side



Much better now with 95.....very pleased and goes with Old Man Tan well...





And yes I kno i need a drop....Coils are next



GF got me this as a gift for our 4 yr anniversary...

Decided it was time to up the boost a little....I was running straight off the wastegate with the springs at 11.6 psi.....I changed out the springs today to run 13 psi.....

Not sure if 1.5 psi will be noticeable driving or how much more hp I will gain.

But I decided that 13 psi is the most I want to push the factory ECU without a piggy back.

I plan on upgrading to ProEFI at some point and see what kind of power I can make out of it.....

For a streetable car IMO 500-600 hp is far more than enough....I would be satisfied with breaking of the 500 hp mark...but its addictive and im sure I will want more...

I'm sure you'll notice a small gain. That S366 really shines at higher boost though, get that thing turnt up!

did a little quick shop, here's what Moar LOW will look like.

looks like it's floating a little but i did it the quick way by moving the wheels up instead of moving the entire car down.

Ended up after the first initial painting i wasnt pleased with how the compressor housing turned out...so I decided to take it all off and sand down some of the lettering...I ended up just keeping the borg waner text and logo and then polished the compressor housing after to get it smooth before paint..

I did this awhile ago just forgot to pull pics off my phone..

I also hit the ends of the small breather as they were chrome before..

FYI...I always run the intake when driving the car but for pics I take if off to better see the turbine...

I have been wanting to see what the lower bumper section and rocker panels would look like black.....I decided to plasti-dip the areas.......It flows the whole way around the bottom of the car and ties the lip into the mix.

Plus it hides the damage on my rear bumper in the license plate area....

Before:







After:









I was only able to finish the passenger side rocker panel and trim pieces before it got dark...





I will get some side shots of the entire car once I get the driver side completed....
