BTW you can still get the valve from Japan Parts Online, about $90 last time I got a couple. Shipping is not bag on 1 being small.

As for the ones your posted, not sure.


Thanks!!! I’ll get the type r prop valve and basically gonna see how the pedals feel w the combo I got now.

Japanparts.com has the valve for $87 which basically as much as the wilwood valves.

Yes that is the place I meant!

Plus it's OEM and you know it will bolt on right, lines will line up, etc.

The extra large MC is just fine tuning the system down the road. I would not worry about trees with that portion haha.

Finished the polish on my y pipe & the last wheel well is like 85% done.

Another 8 hours I think of wire wheeling the undercarriage and it’ll be pretty good to respray red along w the rest of the car. I’m not too worried about getting 100% of the old black undercoating off. That’s basically impossible. Without tearing out he factory undercoating which for the most part is still great after the removal job





& wrapped my manifold.




Update:

I got only a few sand bits left, did a slight polish job on the turbz. I didn’t use any carbide honing type bits... don’t wanna go too crazy, it’s shaped the way it is for a reason.

And don’t forget the waste gate..

So many brush guards! You're going full GD track width, right? That front subframe is enticing..just not sure if I want to stick with stock track width or go wider when I get around to doing my car..
