Keep it clean! Since it's black, it will show every last swirl mark and every last grain of dirt. Clean, or else!

Don't worry, if he doesn't we'll give him a ton of **** about it.

Nice car, they can be really quick. As for Cobb, my buddy hasn't had any problems, and they make some good sh!~t. Get the short shifter from Cobb, it is adjustable, and improves the throws and feel, also gives less notchiness. As you will find out, the shifter will start to grow old fast. Changing the routing of the airbox also helps, and there are a few different plug and play maps available for cheap. Nice car,


Mike

Yes LSD for the win. And it has a limited slip too.

Yes. Yes it has. The 2 to 3 shift has to be given time sometimes. Lame.

Yep, doesn't like to be forced, hence the plethora of shifter kits. One of the best investments for those cars. It will only get worse, to the point where it seems time is standing still for the 2-3 shift.

MS3s are awesome.

I rode in one at the AutoX back in April.

Aside from banging my head in it (we ended up sideways... then the tires gripped and BANG, head -> pillar), it was a really nice car, quick as hell.

Alright here's a little up-date.
With teh help of Eric, Alden and Keith I got a little head banging upgrade.
Specs:
My System:
4x CDT CL62CFs in each door.
2x 10" RE Audio SEs putting out 600 Watts total at 1 OHM
1x MTX Thunder 225HO 700 Watts at 1 OHM at 14.4V
1x US Amps/RE Audio XT 1600.4 100 Watts x4 at 4 OHM
1x Audiocontrol LC6i for the brains
1x Mazda iPod interface control
1x Pyramid CR66 for low frequency control

To-Do:
Install Pyramid CR66
Carpet Box
Tune

Pics:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/redvolv...7621298330483/





Eric's Massive SR next to my "Dinky" SE






My New CDT in the front and the old "Bose" speaker in the back
















Hey Eric, What time is it? "BEER THIRTY!"




Speaker wire and RCAs running over the hump


First Speaker in!


Power! 0 Gauge for the win


A bird decided to "Help" Keith a little bit.


My Hello Kitty Pink Air Filter


The Audiocontrol LOC mounted to the original AMP's bracket. Stealthy...








First door panel back on. Looks stock!


Is that Zero gauge or are you just happy to see me?




Workin' Hard...


...Hardly Workin'












100A fuse










I'm Smiling because I'm actually working.




Alden wishing he had a Beer


Me. Working again?

So Keith, Alden, and Eric: Couldn't have done it without you.
If anybody needs help setting up a system, just talk to Eric. He's the man. Period.

He lives in a Coastal Californian town, I'm pretty sure it's good.

Stereo looks good man, I'll have to see it if you actually move up here.

Ive always liked those but do the engines still fall out? I knew that was a problem with the earlier ones?

Looks very nice, black ftw.

Crazy mang. Sweet car, I've never heard negative things about them until this thread, then again, I haven't heard THAT much about them. I didn't think they were "slow" though, as they can go 155mph and that's faster than all the other hot hatches before it... Hahahaha.

Anywho, BOSE stereos are good normally! Just needed the next next level of good, eh?
