Coilovers installed! Initial response would be pleasantly surprised! Rides better than stock and really hugs the road. Not harsh in any way. Some stickier tires and I don't think this thing will loose traction.
Height setting is straight from the books recommendation with the exception of the rear being raised slightly to keep the negative camber back there manageable. The rear will drop a tad when the new wheel/tire combo goes on but for now I'm gonna try and keep excessive tread wear to a minimum

Tuesday arrives a quickie mod, again a supportive mod for the most part.
One of the biggest issues with the higher boost pulley on the 2g TSX/Cu2 is the Pre-cat in the exhaust. It sits roughly 6-8" from the manifold and under high stress it's been known to burn up. So with the help of RV6 I will be eliminating the pre-cat with their fully bolt on/off downpipe.
Without a tune the downpipe frees up a whopping 10WHP & 4WTQ, tuned I believe it's a little more. It really becomes it's weight in gold when A) boost is applied and the exhaust is freed up B) not having to replace a CAT $$$ when inspection time comes around.

Installed magnaflow mufflers and a vibrant ultra quiet resonator. Sounds great!
Wheel sensors are in the mail. Just need to order the tires and set up an install appointment

Hey guys, been a while since I've been on. Busted my phone and couldn't find the app when I got a new one.

As planned, my Enkei wheels all came in throughout the last couple of months along with tpms. On Saturday I ordered (4) Continental DWS06's in size 245/40r18. I had them delivered straight to the tire shop where I had dropped off the wheels the night before. They came in yesterday afternoon and I had them thrown on the wheels while I was at work so I could just roll in after work and "Mount Em' Up!"..... Which is exactly what I did!
