Still waiting on some time to do valve body then it's off to z1 for nitrous tune. Hoping to make 400/350 wheel with 100 shot nitrous and a retune off bottle should be around 335/275 wheel.
Who makes a valve body for the 7AT? I'm assuming you are 7AT with your front end.

LAWD. Good luck with the build!

Question, did you ever get any resolution with the headers? I didn't think any headers fit the AWD cars.

Well the answer is yes and no. The headers we all want for our g WILL not fit (z1 for shorty). Fast intentions long tube header does fit awd.
I have stillen and they fit great till you take a off ramp at around right turn 50-60mph. It vibrates like hell. They are a nightmare to deal with and no resolution with stillen. They also hand selected them and test fit them. Well obviously not...They made me send in receipts and business license of people who installed it and jump the hoops and then nothing. They only offered to send a new header but wouldn't pay to have it swapped over or anything to make it right. Only thing I asked for was more power and I did get some power but got more of a headache. The only product I enjoy that I have personally owned from stillen is the intakes. That's it. Sorry if I'm a little bitter about it. Spent $600 on ceramic headers and cost that to put on. So 1200 in headers that make my car pretty much unbearable on a track. And no sharp right turns ever. Shout out to stillen!

Sooooooooooo I have a leak. Contacted csf and had a replacement on the way within minutes. Some of the best customer service yet. They actually cared about fix the problem and are car guys that love hearing about your build and ask about it. Not just take your money. I had that radiator for a year. All they wanted was a picture of the leak and the serial number and had one shipped same day.

Told them z days was this weekend so hopefully I get my radiator in when they estimated it to arrive.

Thanks again Ken. This is exactly how this process should go, things happen and I love when companies stand behind their product.

Anybody want to give this csf 7011 radiator a try? Maybe somebody who knows how to fix it? FREE TO A PAID MEMEBER. (You pay actual shipping but radiator is free.)

Swapped rotors and pads today! Spray painted calipers also.


UPDATE: 12/31/2017
I’m due to change front pads, also rotors developed rust unlike some of the zinc coated ones. I won’t be buying these again purely for that reason, rust. It looks bad, but have performed well.

Also would get different pads next time also. I feel like my hawk hps did it’s job best. Doesn’t stop as fast.
I love how even the house side of the caliper is something black coated. Looks real nice. The calipers cost me $5 and have no interest in making them pretty since they aren't bbk but they were looking rusty and what not and this makes it look much better. Under $300 all the way around. Time will tell if it was the right choice Part numbers and etc if anybody needs it. Not posting for advertisements or anything. I'm sure there's a better price, use the part numbers if you need them and google it up.

Finally getting around the the suspension stuff. Hopefully I made the right decision with these. I was just scared of clunking with the bc so after seeing some great reviews on here I decided to go with these. Ksport kontrol pro
