wouldn't call it a build, so lets just keep it down to "project"
(This thread WILL be updated from time to time... just keep watch!)

To start off for 2010:
Megan Racing lowering springs ()
K-tuned fuel rail ()
Exhaust (not quite sure yet) ()
valve cover will be painted ()
Engine accessories (oil caps, rad cap, etc.) ()
Carbon fibre spark plug cover (X)
CAI (X)
Beaks Bar (custom brackets) ()

I already got some things done:
CAI and the carbon fibre spark plug cover.

CAI (i'm running a AEM CAI + AEM dryflow air filter)




CF!!!!!!!! :-D:-D:-D:-D:-D

I like the carbon fiber cover.

Just telling you now because everyone else is going to say it............buy Tein Basics, unless you like replacing struts.

^^^I was gonna say Ksports or Teins last night. Lowering springs are a waste of money imo.

Loving the CF cover, got a link where to buy it?

Can't wait to see some more pics!

The springs aren't bad. It's the fact that the stock shocks weren't designed for the lowered ride and will operate beyond their capabilities usually leading to failure which requires replacement and by that point you should've just gone with coilovers from the beginning. You could also pick up some nice performance shocks that are made for that sort of thing.

Too bad there is no aftermarket struts/shocks for the E designed to handle lowering springs, its alot more cost effective to buy coilovers.

I'd have to agree with people on the lowered E. We have an 07 SC and it comes .7" lowered and the shocks are NOT designed even for that stance.
They have a very harsh on/off feel in the beginning because in fact they are being engaged at almost 1" into their normal travel.

actually they are on the SC. they are a totally different assembly than the non-SC's

51605-SCV-A92 Left for the SC
51605-SCV-A05 Left for the others

they feel harsher because they are.;-)
