Purchase update.
Ordered a set of 215/35/18 Nankang NS-20's from onlinetires.com. Looking to get a pretty good stretch. Also ordered a set of wobble nuts from Guerrilla Racing. Fingers crossed that those will work. I'm gonna push hard this spring to get the parts I've bought over the past year onto the car.. Header, camber arms, wheels. Coilovers will probably go back on until I can afford the rest of my air setup. My next big purchase will either be a skid plate or the brackets for the Evo X recaros. Although I am a little concerned about it deleting my side airbags.

Went and bought my third sti v limited front lip from eBay as it was 15 dollars cheaper than I've bought it before. I also picked up a set of LED under glow puddle lights. I am hoping I can somehow wire that to a switch near where the 'dsc' button is.

After a year I finally got to install the msds header. My review of it as follows as well as the difficulties I had. It took me about two afternoons to complete by myself with a little parts/tools help from my dad. I used lots of wd40 but the only real problem I had was getting to the nuts or bolts and having enough leverage to get them out. I suggest taking out both heat shields and the lower shelf. Buy a crown O2 socket, it will attach to a torque wrench. You might have to unbolt the race pipe or the other side of the exhaust to pull down the header. I used the oem gasket.

With the combined mods it's pretty loud. It's as loud as I expected the corksport exhaust to be when I first got it. Cabin noise is loud and probably not for everyone. Anything past 4k rpm it will get raspy. Idle is louder and cruising is great. Deep sounding almost like a Subaru. Downshifts give you a nice grumble and an occasional loud pop. I felt a noticeable difference in the power band. Here's a video shot with my iPhone. But the rattle doesn't do it justice!

I'll have to upload the video from a computer later.

Joel's 2011 CWP Mazda 3!

Picked up Corksport's skidplate in Vancouver today. Confirmation: it fits perfectly through the back the hatch

Also on the way is Kahtec's smart stop delay for the third brake light.



Smart stop delay installed.

There was an offer I couldn't resist so I purchased the main components of the airride setup I need. This will leave me with rear bags and lca's left to purchase!

Lower control arms on the way. I'll need to purchase rear bags soon and my air setup will be finished.
