So I ditched the Tein springs for some HKS Hiper Ds. I only have the rears in but they already ride better than what was already in there (seems to be Dealer optioned Nismo Bilsteins, might be worth hanging onto but they're ridiculously stiff lol). Haven't tried the fronts as they look like they'll be insanely low, but if they end up having zero sag the ride height might not end up being that bad.
Moving onto some exhaust stuff atm, cutting out this shitty valve I had installed in 2018 for no good reason and getting Dump Pipe to cat measured up to hopefully have a stainless steel 3.5" pipe to the converter, and then 80mm (3 1/4 inch) to the muffler. If it doesn't help me get to my power goal it should at least offer the head room on a bigger turbo to crank out decent figures to the wheels.
Also car is telling knock knock jokes. Techs don't think it's coming from the engine so I'm hoping it goes away with exhaust valve delete (it's been flapping around for a while but sound has gotten louder and can be heard from inside the car while driving now). Z-Tune body conversion gonna have to wait a while as rear quarter panel prices are quite high and I imagine overseas shipping is gonna be wild.
