Wires, cap, rotor... ran the car and made sure the misfires were gone and it wasn't bogging down anymore...... then put in my MTE Stage 1 tune. Oh boy is it fun! Can't wait to get my Snabb intake pipe, Japanifold, 16T, and  my IPD turboback once in arrives.

p.s. I know you guys recommended Beust, which I plan to go with once I'm ready to further upgrade the car (R mani, 18/19T, etc etc). I just got a nice deal from Alex.

855R. Tan dash out. Charcoal dash in. Some of the cosmetic repairs I made to the top plastic piece that's adjacent to the windshield got screwed up, and are now causing minor creaks over when I make turns or brake/accelerate. It's so weird though because the dash is completely silent over potholes and other bumps. I have a couple ideas for stopping the noise, but if I can't, I'm contemplating selling the car. May sound extreme, but the whole point of me spending countless hours reinforcing the dash was to make the cabin silent in that area of the car. I like how the car looks and drives, but the creaking will bother the stuff out of me.

Also did the auto down passenger window mod while I had everything apart:

Mounted and balanced a fresh set of Hankook V12s last night. Sent the old V12s out in style by doing a couple burnouts in the shop before putting my car on the lift :laugh:
