hey guys i just picked up an 08 sfp is250 awd last weekend and couldnt be happier. looking forward to my stay here and learning as much as possible. trying to get a set of coils by the end of the week. my goals for the car is to have a clean simple daily.





my other car is a 2007 eclipse.....i know i know its a hard platform to like....but it was my first car so im still super attached.



super excited to get started on the IS.

That's sick. What wheels on that Eclipse? Reminds me of my old SF Winnings.

The kit looks nice too. It's a shame this is FWD and not Turbo AWD anymore. Mitsubishi really dropped the ball on that

That's a nice looking Eclipse, I have a soft spot for that car. It could be so much more, but Mitsu just killed it....bunch of idiots.

Just 3" PVC pipe and 2 3" end caps. Just add a valve stem onto one of the caps. Seal it all up with the sensors inside and air up to 35 psi...there should be a write up around

Small update, finally painted and installed my front lip, roof spoiler and diffuser. Looking for some sides now.

Feel like once I get sides, visors, exhaust and air I'll be happy with the car.
