Yeah except I put a bid down on EJ20TT's RS in New York and it has a few more upgrades than the one I picked up. Forgot I bid on that car and won the bid for $4,025 and wish I still had the cash for it.
:( Now I feel like an idiot. Damn I need to be a little more patient than I am. Oh well I did pick up a clean RS but wish I waited longer.

Take note to take your time and wait for the good car for a better price than the one you picked up. The good cars will come to those who wait. I hope EJ20TT can get the 5,000 for it.

Looks clean as hell man. Cars looks like its already got some good mods on it already.
thanks it does have some cool mods that I may keep on the car. I will keep the shift knob since I can't replace it till I get more money. I think I will keep the rally innovations light bar unless persuaded with enough money otherwise. Of course I'm keeping the Mud flaps and the borla cat back.

Alright at the beginning of next month I have around $200 to spend on my car anything around that I can get for that price? I'm thinking of an Intake for some performance but I would like to bleed my brakes and get SS brake lines. I also want some slotted rotors. I do need a new suspension setup soon. Except I want to go with Prodrive springs on KYB AGXs.

I love the color too that's why I held out a little longer to get it. Right now I need to do the Valve Gasket job probably this weekend. Also looking at getting a ver 6 JDM Steering wheel to fix my clock spring problem.

Well I keep going over the engine on the outside of what needed replaced and I ordered some Rallitek Plug Wires since the connectors on both ends are looking a little old. Looking into getting an Ignition Coil as well, anyone know where I can find a good clean brand new Ignition Coil or also know the part number for that since mine is old and the connectors are looking old as well.

I do have a few updates about the car.

received a paranoid fabrications grounding kit for the 2.5 RS
Rallitek Spark plug wires
Getting a new coil pack for the car as well
(I read dielectric grease will help prevent corrosion on the connectors)
Waiting for a new steering wheel/clock spring I just ordered
Also looking into a CAI used for cheap
Also still need to do my valve cover gasket job on the car which looks like I have plenty of time this weekend to do it.

I will take some more pictures this weekend after all my fun and installments.
