I replaced the intake air temp sensor, ran some seafoam, and swapped the plugs back to the bosch +2's. And drove it a bunch before smog to heat the cats up a lot.

I'm just really relieved!

Fender liners, one brake duct, clutch bushings, exhaust hangers....and from ddm, front lip and splitters.

I'm going to pick up some sheet aluminum and make my own front underpanel to avoid the plastic crap that tends to fly off at speeds over 130

I'll update with progress after I get started

Haha I work in the dark when its about 25 degrees in my driveway at night. I work from about 6:30am to anywhere from 4-7pm, so I just come home and work on it for a little bit after work. These things don't really take too long.
