Put new Bilstein b4's on. Current set up is stock springs, Bilstein b4's, and TMS sway bars. So far I'm loving it! Over the past month I have done my rod bearings, oil pan gasket, fuel filter, belts, and tires. Really just trying to bulletproof the car and replace components before they go bad.

Started the car after doing vanos/valve adjustment and cooling system. Doesn't seem like any codes except for one issue...oil gushing out of the front of the vanos unit. Have to go clean up the mess and figure out what's up. Hoping it's simply that I maybe didn't torque down the solenoid pack/seal plate properly.

So... somehow one of the seals on the sealing plate is "missing". Not sure when/how it fell out. Easy fix, hard part is waiting for the new damn seal to arrive .

Finally swapped my SGT SCZ muffler for the super sprint street....wanted something quieter for when the time comes and I do a CSL intake
Will have the SGT SCZ exhaust with black tips for sale soon.
