    Its all in spec now, the first place lied to me and didn't get it close at all. Les schwab did, just to clarify.

    Looking good! Still can't believe how nice the car looks, especially for how cheap it was. Mine could probably use an alignment too, I might just have it done while I'm having the new wheels and tires put on today lol

    Thanks!! I love both, my sister has a '98 Daytona that was my dad's when I was growing up. I just sorta fell into mine, my grandma bought it new in '03 and gave it to me when she quit driving and I just fell in love with it the more I got into it (and the more I spent on it, sadly). How bad are your bumpers? My rear one was pretty screwed up, but I had it fixed. The guy said he could fix the front one too, but I found an OEM one for $150 and just couldn't pass it up. You may be better off just having your current ones fixed

    Annnnnnnnnnd CS144. My previous alt was screaming at me and was close to locking up, so good time to upgrade. Thanks to booba for the help!!

    My alt is new cause had the money and all the cars at the JY had insane miles on them so no go there.

    I had the extra battery cables laying around so I upgraded the charging



    Sense I have a 98 I had to remove the bracket from the supercharger to make it fit. It went together real fast and Im a lucky dog who did not have to get a larger belt I guess its different for some folks? not sure why.



    I like the way it looks in there, later today I'll put wire looms on and tighty it up.



    I recommend this upgrade to anyone looking to add something nice to their car, the stereo performs better, lights are brighter, locks/windows are faster, and no more dimming on bass drops.
    Don't mind the dirty engine bay, I did an entire gasket kit and my water is still off so no power washing til it warms up.

    I wanted to do the CS144, but my alt went out suddenly and it was just too damn cold to do anything other than an easy replacement lol. Looks great!

    I like the oil filler tube. Then it doesn't look so open, to me.

    I was wondering when someone would notice haha.. however I think my front cover (which is now rear) is leaking cause I smell oil all the time.

    So I get to take it all apart again. I replaced the VC gaskets with ZZP replacements and didn't come with grommets.. so fel-pro this time

    Nice! I've been meaning to switch mine over to LEDs, but I never get around to it. Tails look good too!

    I hope my trans go will help with this issue that I found now that I'm more comfortable beating up on my car... (not anymore)

    Well today was interesting. I got my alarm/remote start all hooked up and set up the way I want. The only thing I wish was different is that I tried to hook up my fogs to an auxiliary port so I can turn them on/off if its dark outside. but it looks like I need a "bit writer" to do so.. However there is an option to link the auxiliary to the lock/unlock option for a max time of 60 seconds, so I did that.

    My auxiliary outputs are (-) so I just added a 5 pin relay to make it work while also keeping the regular functionality. Thanks again for the help Booba!!

    Ill post pics of all my work in the morning..

    Then I found a corner of my LIM leaking after I did the LIM gaskets a month ago.. Poo.. I guess I didn't use enough RTV

    I needed a reason to paint my blower anyways.
