Couple of changes to the ol' ride.

First up,

Installed some nice matte black fender stripes. Bought some nice vinyl from the signs store (great stuff btw, outdoor rated for 5+ years) Cut them into stripes and installed. Came out perfect. I really dig em.

Next mod,

bought a HID 6000K Lighting kit. this is one of the best mods to date. I see SO much better at night now. It almost unreal. I feel like i was driving with flash lights before. I purchased the Xenon kit from chong at revline. It was a simple plug and play set up. And i must say the quality of this unit is top notch. I truly do love it.

Last but not least,

I finally put my turbo in. I purchased a base map from torqued performance for the vf40 on a 08 since he has done this set up before. I then had a friend put a wideband on the car and we fine tuned it on the street. I must say this was a fantastic mod. Im in love.

Before on my stage 2 set up on the stock turbo i was hitting 17.8 psi target in a third gear pull, falling to about 10ish psi before redline. not to shabby.

Now with the VF40 turbo i hit almost 20psi target in a third gear pull, falling to about 14-15ish psi before red line. A pretty nice difference. I even see 20+ psi target in 4th.

The A/F is right about 10.6-10.9, So just a tad rich to be on the safe side. And zero knock. :D

I must say the car hauls ass! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Thanx everyone!

Im loving the car. I sent the logs after to torqued performance, he said the car seems happy and healthy :D

Im really digging the stripes as well. Pretty easy to put on. Someone told me i should do the front stripe in matte red and leave the rear one matte black. But i like them all black!

No mixed stripes IMHO...

Looks good.. The old ratio was 3" stripes 1" space.. you look more 4 and 1..

Yea i wasnt sure of the ratio. I did 3 3/4 stripes and 1 inch space. I tryed different sizes. And the 3 3/4 seemed to look the best. :D

Looks great! I wasn't sure how I'd like stripes on the 08 body but after seeing a real picturen(not photochopped) it looks great! :twisted:

I've been looking at gettting some HIDs too seem like they would be a great idea because they are functional and last alot longer than standard bulbs. From some of my research on them though it seems that maybe they're illegal if they didn't come stock on your car...can anyone provide any insight on this? :?

i did 2 1/2" and 1 1/2 space on my matte black stripes. i got extra so i could go bigger.
the white car with matte stripes looks really good though. :D

With the smoother lines of the fender, I think the wider stripes make a statement.

I may need to do a new Stripes gallery post. :)
