What's the scent of that one? I've been using CG Black Light Hybrid suds with good results and heavy cling, rinses easily.

It has a Cherry sent, and it's actually quite nice. TONS of really thick suds and cling. My foam cannon is just the cheap $10 Amazon one with an upgraded 1.1 mm internal nozzle.

Found a set of welds I couldn’t pass up on. The rears currently have 275’s so those will be getting switched to 305’s

Thanks. Had a set of vms wheels previously and they were kinda garbage as far as fitment and weight went. The welds are so much lighter! Hopefully heading back to the track on the 14th to see how the new wheels do.

Nothing major this weekend, just some Chicago screws to cover up the holes in my splitter after trimming it and a cheapo rear diffuser.

Thanks for sharing these pics -- I've been trying to visualize what I'd like to do for the rear of my Black Raven sedan and this is really helpful to see. Pretty much confirms that I need to: black out the chrome trim piece (plastidip vs. 3M cover TBD), add a spoiler (in the plans) and I really like the look of the diffuser. If you don't mind my asking, would you be willing to share the details on what you did for those three items? Specifically curious where you found the spoiler and rear diffuser. Thanks!

The blacked out trim pieces were done by previous owner. As far as I can tell, they masked off and sprayed some of the trim that way (especially around the windows, they may have removed the other pieces. Even my grille was painted, which has been a bitch to keep touched up from rock chips). I wish I knew the paint code because it does have some metallic flake in it even though it's more of a matte sheen, similar to the satin graphite wheel paint I guess.

Same situation for the spoiler, although I believe it's a weaponX boomerang carbon spoiler.

The diffuser I got from ebay for $20 (Here). They make fake CF ones too but I opted for plain black. They are all the same Chinese product, so don't be fooled by any with higher prices on Amazon or whatever. I taped it where I wanted it to be (it fits EXACTLY in the middle of the bumper from end to end), I then drilled 10 pilot holes in various places along the edge of the diffuser. Removed the diffuser, countersunk the holes and then used some black painted #9 3/4" screws from Ace hardware (Hillman Link OR 30 Pack on Amazon) and reinstalled. The diffuser comes with some double sided tape and some crappy screws (way too long, silver heads) to use, but I didn't use either of those to install it.

FINALLY got time to get my trans reinstalled in the car after 4 months of being delayed because of OT at work . Also because of that delay I forgot, Does anyone have a clear picture of where the slave line bolts to or remember off the top of ur head.

Does it go under one of the bell housing bolts or am I missing a nut if it goes on one of the studded bolt heads

Also finally got my creative steel shifter and new knob in that ive had for about 6 months ^_^

Gotta bleed the clutch and finish putting the plug wires and coils back in and she should hopefully be all good to go

Been doing a good bit the last few weeks. Core Shifter, V3 carbon front lip, rotors/pads and last week installed a Zl1 lid w/reinforced brick and a Varimax pump. HOLY HELL what a difference.


I had previously installed an expansion tank and low mount HX. There was always a minimum 30-35* variance in IAT2's compared to IAT1. With this new setup I'm averaging 14-17* and it drops SO fast after a pull. Incredibly happy with it.


I also spent far too many hours trying to fix my QTP cutouts. I put them on the car 5 years ago when I first got it because it was stock and far too quiet. Needless to say they stayed opened for basically the entire time. Now that I have headers and an x-pipe the car is way too loud with them open. Hit the remote, no luck. Climb under and find that the pins got pulled out of the harness god knows how long ago.

Remove the valves and solder on new harnesses for the whole set up. Check fuses, power and wouldn't you know- the ground got burned up. I'm guessing it shorted from having the open wires under the car. Get that squared away and only 1 of the cutouts will work. Swapped harnesses with the same result. Order a new motor for it, installed and still no luck. For the life of me I can't figure out the issue. Butterfly moves freely without the motor connected, motor still won't move without the butterfly connected. I need to just get rid of them I really don't feel like spending $2k on a Corsa that won't improve performance.
