Sounds like it should go as nice as it looks.

Could you give me details on your battery transfer? Difficulty, regrets, next time I would do this different. Stuff like that.

Puck,

the battery relocation mod was done by my friends at Custom Car Alarms in Pleasant Hill, California.

it took them a few hours to do it. its mounted in the right side of the trunk near the tailight housing.

the parts that you will need are:

1) Battery relocation kit - check w/ JC Whittney, the kit that i have is made by Morosso.

2) heavy duty gauge cable for audio etc

3) Phoneix Gold fuse box and fuse for safety - its mounted on top of + terminal.

overall, i like this mod because it takes off at least 30lbs off the nose. The guys at C2 told me that the driver side of USDM GC8 is way heavy compare to the passenger side. ( got the car corner weighted, balanced by C2 automotive. ) so this mod actually balance out the weight distribution a bit. also less rubbing issues when the car is taking a deep sharp cornering.

i will post some pix later..

Thanks Cal. There is a kit that Summit Racing sells that includes all that, plus there right down the street. I guess that will go on the mod list.

impretzel,

yeah i wanted cusco too but i couldn't find a good price for them so i settled for Tein HA's.

i just ordered the ver5/6 front grill and rear bumper so i will post new pix soon.

i probably will add ver5/6 spoiler after ej20 swap or supercharger kit.

cheers!

Yea, it's not as loud as it looks. ;) Someone thought my car was a coupe too! She was waiting for me and my passenger to scoot up, :lol:. Cal, let me know if you want me to take some pics. It'll look a lot better with the real v5/6 rear bumper. :)
