Default diXis 18 TiAg Journal

So I got my car a few years ago and every time I do something I regret not having a journal to track it. So I'll try to show the different stages it's been through and give some history but this is mostly more for future and documenting the rest of the life of the car. So here is a very quick, very brief story of the car to bring everyone up to date.

I got the car a few years ago. It was a completely stock 2005 TiAg ZCP 6 speed.




My first round of modding was pretty awful. Not sure what I was thinking, was just young and had no taste and liked my hard parking shows lol.







Then I went to a CSL look and got a car wash too.




Got some headers installed by Kaiv and fixed my vanos too.







Well Kaiv convinced me to do my first track day.





Track bug hit hard. Met a few friends. Got volks. Got crazy with some colors.







New bumper and more up to date pics.

I also went to my friend Shawn at Encino Auto Works who squared away a bunch of stuff for me. He installed the Vibra Technic engine mounts and a few more Beisan parts. Also put on my Turner pulley's, replaced my broken O2 sensor's, swapped to a stainless clutch line, swapped my RSM, installed SS sec 1 but I don't have any pics of those. He also fixed my Auto Solutions SSK as it was installed wrong initially by someone else.

Encino Auto Works gets a huge

Latest update has been a S2R sunroof delete panel, non sunroof headliner, Kirk bar, Schroth harness. I wish I could have saved for a Evolve carbon roof but it was just out of my budget and I couldn't swing it. But I am super happy with the S2R panel. I think the pictures speak for themselves.










Oh and I did a track day at Spring Mountain Motorsport Ranch

Woowoo!

Funny thing is I look for your journal on a regular basis until I remember again that you don't have one problem solved now!
