Dropped the SC400 off at the Magnaflow r&d center yesterday for them to develop a SC cat back. Hopefully getting the car back Friday night so will make a thread and update everyone.

It was made for a GS400. Those wheels clear my ISF also, ample amount of space. I am only running the LS brakes up front and not a problem.

Default Headlight restoration

Used the 3M headlight restoration kit to clean up my headlights and fogs.

Cleaned just my interior today since the weather in central Texas has been so crappy for the past week. As soon as it clears up and continues with the regularly scheduled program I'll wash and add another coat of wax.

Soon: Full APT AC style polyurethane kit, 5Zigen Fireball replica mufflers, window tint (has NONE, I'm dying in Texas) black interior dye and still deciding on wheels/suspension set up.

It also doesn't help that my AC isn't working. I charged it up with my old work's machine (used to be an auto technician) and it worked amazing for that evening. Went out the next day and it was back to blowing out hot. Now when I turn just my fan on it acts erratically. Goes from full blast to low, and back and forth.

No idea whats up with it. All I can say is that if my windows didn't roll down, I'd be parking her for a bit. lol.

That's weird, my climate control was acting funky too but it fixed itself today. Before my heater would blow cold air opposite of yours. But as I was installing a double din, I connected everything back; climate, hazard, etc. then I turned on the heater to see if the problem went away and it did. I originally thought it was my heater control valve, not that I need heat at this time of the year, but I'm OCD like that and needed to fix it.

Between last night and tonight I managed to get one engine mount out and a new one back in...waiting to be tightened tomorrow night. Other side mount is loose and ready to come off. Holy crap, this is turning out to be the most difficult thing I've ever had to do on any of my cars. I am used to Subaru and the more I work on my SC the more I appreciate my Legacy,

Nice! I had a Legacy (NA 06') that I sold then got the SC300. You got that right about the EJ engines being easier to work on not sure about reliability tho

Waiting to get it back from the shop, as I have been to busy to change the timing belt and such, so I have allowed some one else to touch my baby!

I scored the throttlebody for my boosted2jz project and unneeded tps sensor to sell
i gotta clean it up a little, this is too exciting for my blood
here is a shot

Default Engine & Trans mount

I finished my engine and transmission mounts. I included a pic of the old vs. new. The old ones weren't cracked or anything, but notice how collapsed they are compared to the new. I am so happy with the outcome, it really is a night and day difference. No more vibrations - engine revs smooth as silk once again and the sound is so much better. Car is back on jack stands as of this evening patiently awaiting a new timing belt.
