He doesn't still have the OPH-s, he put them on. When he first got it, it had perfectly fine (maybe a bit faded) headlights.
Can't tell from the pics if those silly fogs are still on, though.

Thanks! I'll have to try some of that leather stuff.


The only problem that I had with the seats is with the electrical connectors. The two smaller connectors were different and wouldn't fit. The two larger ones (heated seats, I think) fit fine, though. My airbag light was already on before this, so I don't really care. I just wanna make sure that the passenger airbag will go off in an accident.

if i remember correctly, the srs light on in the dash will deploy both airbags in an accident, the reason it it on is to let you know that the car doesnt know if anybody is sitting in that seat...

IIRC!!!

Yeah, that's what I'm hoping. I pulled out the bulb anyway, so it's just that little dim LED.

Thanks Matt. My dad didn't understand. He kept telling me that he thinks the old seats are better.

I need good quality pics of my car.


Cannon rebel, factory lens, what settings do I use to make the car in focus, the backround not, and good lighting?

Still loving it? Run anybody yet?

Timing belt at 60k? Seems early, IIRC WRXs are 100k. How was that job?


Looking good!

Only ran with two cars since its sits in the garage more than anything. Beat a tt supra by half a car not sure what it had done but all i know is its turbo was louder then mine and out ran a s/c roush. On the evos you have to do the timing belt job at 60k, well dont have to but its recommend mostly because the pullies and tensioners go bad. I put a gates kevlar belt and all Mitsubishi tensioners and pullies cost a pretty penny lol.. As for how bad i couldnt tell you i saw how much work goes into and said fuuuuu that so took it to a shop of a friends that gave me a great price.

18psi Po says dynoed at 380whp but no clue at where i am since he could not provide a dyno sheet. Supra had exhaust and the turbo was loud as hell other then that it could have just been stock for all i know. He didnt want to talk afterwards just drove off.
