My Car's History

Bought brand new in 2004:

Did DIY Blackouts, Redouts, HIDs, Whale Penis Intake :rotfl:
Spring 2008: cheap mods here, replaced my Fujita SRI with the PWJDM intake

CF Replica Wing, Blackout Tails
Feb 2009: got a cf wing and blacked out my tails. Got too much heat from Georgia cops so removed the blackouts shortly after (ricer anyway).

Two months later this happens... CF spoiler is destroyed and about $5,000 damages...

JDM Sidemarkers, Eibach Pro-kits, Espelir JGT500 exhaust, Yellow Fogs, DSM A-Spec rep wing
Summer 2009: Car gets fixed. Decided I wanted to go lower, went with good ol' Eibachs and also found me a great deal on an JDM Espelir exhaust.
Replaced the destroyed CF wing with much cleaner A-Spec rep painted to match. Installed amber JDM sidemarkers.

Accident #2: A-Spec Rear Lip
Mar 2010: Girl hits my car and tries to hide, I find her and get it all repaired after a while. Still sucked though... :(

Played with some of the extra insurance money and bought me a set of 05 Type-S wheels and OEM A-spec rear :giggity:

Decklid Spoiler, Rota G-Force wheels
Aug 2010: ditched the A-spec wing and bought a decklid spoiler, ordered a set of gunmetal Rota G-Force wheels in 17x8

How's that pwjdm intake on a base??
get a CAI. it just looks cool when you pop the hood, i was young and got it for bling...
i ghetto-fabbed the intake setup, i didn't even have the new battery or relocation kit, to install correctly you need to drop another $200 or so on battery and relocation kit.
yet its still a SRI and heatsoaks just like any other one... you may as well just buy a Mugen/ARC for that price or just get CAI like I said lol.
