well i just finished putting all my under-the-hood mods on her, so i thought id share some pics..... also, just waxed it so i threw in a pic lol
Mods in pics include: Dual torque braces(check out that .5mm clearance!!!! gotta love that grinding away noise while turning! ), 05 mount(yes, its an 06 car), DC Sports strut bar, SSC Coil Cover and Fuse Box Cover, Red-Painted Fuel Rail Cover, K&N CAI, 2.8" SFPHQ pulley, and prob a few other things i forgot. anyways, enjoy!
That grinding isnt good, its putting pressure on the motor mount. Thats why I took it off already back in october and was waiting for the replacement bracket. If that motor mount breaks I'm sure its not cheap to replace.
I know it's ghetto, but I put double sided foam tape (the good and thick 3M brand) on the side of the bracket. Some vinyl decal over that to weather proof it a little (part of my business, plenty laying around) and the left turn grinding noise is gone. I figured the tape wouldn't hold up more than a few days between there, but it's been over 3 weeks and it still looks like it did when I first put it on.
Temporary fix until I get new mounts and bushings, I'll probably ditch the brace (Weapon R). I notice no difference what so ever with wheel hop using it, stronger and smoother shifts, though.
