    Forgot to include a back shot in the previous post.

    Finally got her out of the garage. Got the door cards back in and decided to mix it up a bit. Bad news is, while I was driving around the other night it suddenly stalled out on me... Luckily I was close to home, but I was able to get it started again and it only acted up a couple more times on the short drive. Some type of fuel issue. I'm going to start with replacing the filter, someone mentioned a sensor that notoriously shakes lose on the engine that I'm going to check, then hopefully not replacing the fuel pump. I really hope it doesn't go that far...

    No, just smoothed out the paint/primer job form last time and sprayed over it. I didn't have time for all that and i just wanted something fun to do. Turned out pretty nice though. I can't wait to drive it again.

    No on the v8 stuff. I have all the mounts and headers still, just don't have the space or Money for a swap yet. I got bored and did a thing though. Money is tight, but I needed to do something to have fun.

    For some reason this picture was uploading as flipped. In my last post.

    Went to my first car show last weekend. Carlisle import show / East Coast Z Nationals. Its funny how small my car looks between these two amazing s30's Side note: I painted my valve cover a while ago and finally put it on. Here's a couple random pictures I took before the show.

    Ok, so horrible experience with atara racing wheels. I have never received a brand new product with so many defects in my life. However, the guy Eugene, the main man state side for the company, made sure that everything was taken care of at no cost to me and all is well now. That being said, I now have everything mounted on the car. Pictures will be up asap and I am very happy with the fit. As for specs: up front is the 15x9-13 wheel with 205/50/15 Yokohama S drive tires. I am also still running my 25mm wheel spacers and have about a fingers worth of space between my coilover spring and the wheel. In the back are 15x10.5 -32 wheels, no spacers needed, 205/50/15 toyo extensa all season tires. After having everything installed, I have decided that.next time I need tires I will go one, maybe two sizes wider in the rear. Not only was it difficult to get the 205 to bead on the 10.5" wide wheel, but I now have some gap in the rear. I'm happy with it for now, but know what to change next time. I will try to get pictures up asap of the new wheels and how they look. I will also say this, for anyone that plans on ordering from atara, if you go staggared like I did be orepaired to have to deal with a couple issues. First, the paint was no where close between the front and rear wheels and that had to be taken care of. Also, the 9" wide and 10.5" wide wheels are a different center bore. Why? I have no idea... The front center caps are way larger than the rears... I was able to get them to send me an extra pair of fronts and was able to 3m tape them to the rear center caps for a uniform look. Pictures will follow as soon as I have the time for upload.

    Just ordered my tires, waiting on replies from the vendor and ordering the atara pisang wheels. Decided to go with the bronze finish. Can't wait to get them. Staggered set of 15x9 -13 fronts and 15x10.5 -32 rears. Pictures up as soon as I get everything worked out. If my calculations are right I should be good with 1/4" spacers to clear my front coils. Decided to go with 205/50/15 all the way around, similar to what purepontiackid is running. I will have a tad more stretch all the way around but I'm hoping it will work out ok.

    I wanna say 8k front 6k rear? Maybe its the other way around. They are whatever springs came.with the emusa s13 coilovers. As far as squat goes, j get a bit, but its not bad in my opinion. It's aot less than stock was but it still moves. Hope that helps.
