B-Spec Stage 3 tune flashed, went catless. Tune came with the inertia update for the smg. Recommend to anyone with a smg. Feels much better when hitting the canyons and street shifting.

-Bearings - reusing stock M11s
-Radiator - seems that the one in there from the P.O. is incorrect. No issues except janky oil cooler mounting setup.
-Engine mounts
-Steering coupler
-Replace cracked oil cooler shroud
-convert oil return from oil style hose clamp to updated AN fitting
-High Pressure PS Line
-SAP delete
-Eibach Pro Street S
-Apex stud kit

And probably more that I'm forgetting along with a bunch of gaskets, crush washers, etc. to hopefully sort out oil leaks from my engine.

I'm also contemplating the following while I'm in there.

-Euro headers - there is so much more space with the subframe out that I think I might want to tackle this while everything is apart. I posted a WTB but if anyone sees this and has some euro headers to sell let me know.
-FCABs - Purple powerflex installed currently by P.O. Seem to be in okay condition for now, only 13K miles on them so far. Might hold off on these since they are fairly easy to access anyway. Considering the new turner bearing version.


have some euro headers that I'd like to get rid of...along with a supersprint Race if I could sway you
