So things this year haven't gone to plan (specifically the turbo stuff) due to my current tuner. Gonna end up going with someone else. It has been nothing but a horrible experience. I'll make a separate post on that horror story.

Onto other news... doing a rehaul on my suspension setup. The CXRacing coilovers I had lasted about 50k miles, I would recommend these if you want low and are on a budget. The new setup is fortune auto. Also have camber arms for the rear. I will post an update on how all that goes.

If you're reading this, I appreciate ya!

Got the coils, they're in and they handle great. Camber arms are also installed. Have a speed6 lined up to buy in the spring. Big stuff coming soon! A squirrel chewed an important ground wire and my HID wires (that was fun to fix). The other pics are from h2oi.

Put speed6 brakes on the past few days. The pads are hawk PC and the rotors are stoptech slotted. Big improvement in braking power.

Did a few things this winter. Almost finished the 93 Octane tune (it pulls so much harder now). Changed the spark plugs for the first time at 120k miles, ran a lot smoother than before. Put some stainless brake lines in. Rerouted the low and high beam HID harnesses to make room for charge piping, also removed a plastic airbox that's attached to the air snorkle for more room.
If you're still reading this the turbo should be installed sometime in June. Only need a catted downpipe, scream pipe, and 3 inch exhaust piping. All the problems I had with tuning are fixed (almost 2 years later). I will be posting the turbo build to youtube under the name project2ndgenspeed6. I also picked up a speed6. I'm so excited that this is finally happening.

Where did you get this? Its for the 2.5l Skyactive?
No it's a racing manifold for a speed3. I actually bought it from a friend who turboed his skyactiv 3. He ended up having a custom turbo manifold made since this didn't fit.

Mzr? Direct fit to what engines? I've not paid attention to anything not V6 related till last year.
The Mzr/duratec series engine, not skyactiv. 2.3, 2.3 disi, 2.5 and even the 2.0 (I think) exhaust manifolds are all the same porting/bolt pattern.
