I was looking at custom coils from coilspring.uk i was going to do a 40mm drop in the front and 50 bec the rear sits a bit higer, i currently have 17's but you said you almost have a 4in drop? I want my tires to just about be tucked into the fenders or sligtly tucked not worried about trimming how far of a drop do you reccomend? Nice build btw i am currently saving money for my 97 ng holset build :)

So got my new 14cm^2 housing in the other day..... 3" vband beautifully tig welded on and no internal wastegate bs.
And no huge bulkiness like the original 12cm^2 housing ;)







And I finally found out what happened....

Your F.B.T looks nice ;)

So what come loose and made a sun roof in your block?

Did you break a rod ?
Seems that the bearing locked up and snapped the rod at the base

I know the chances of a response aren't high but I was really curious about how you went about building the coilovers. My brother in law has some older BMW E-30 coilovers that he thinks he can build into coilovers for my 01 9-3 that I have a set of RKII's for. But if you could, link me to the exact coilovers you used and what springs you would recommend and if you would do anything differently if you went about it again. my email is [email protected] if you could send it there so i'm more likely to see it. Car looks rad man, thanks.

What sucks about owning a daily is that this get put on the back-burner
Especially since every time I attempt to work on it, I have another friend or family member wanting to work on their own car at the same time, but always end up having to finish up the job (or sometime do the entire job) in order to get the car out for business to function properly the next day

Had a test fitment date with the wheel builder last week
And it looks like it will be a very proper fitment.

and may I ask what your suspension setup is?!

3-piece wheels off oem mags are very popular in Europe ;) - good on you for taking the dip... which wheel have you chosen :D
Go a page back and you can see the suspension I fab'd up.

The wheel is a surprise hehe. Nothing too crazy of a build
