Slavy's Gg Progress Thread

177 posts in this topic

Hello PLers! I finally got around to start my own progress thread. I'd like to tell you a little about myself, sorta like the guy behind the car lol. I live on the border of PA/NJ, in the Lehigh Valley PA. Im so close to NJ, I could walk across the bridge. So, if your in the area or passing through, hit me up welcome to stop for a beer. I always a good time to meet a fellow Lancer owner.

Heres a little history of what I use to drive. I had a '95 white Accord 4dr V6 non-Vtec with a few mods like rims, CAI, etc., I traded her in 215K strong back in 2007 for a 2008 Blue Pearl Accord Coupe. I kept this car for 3 years till I traded her in late July for what you see here, 2010 Lancer GTS in GG. I couldnt be happier with the color. This is my first Mitsi, so any help or ideas would be helpful.

Heres a current mod list::

-Tinted::30% all around, 20% Rear.

-Tinted Fogs::Yellow.

-Ebay OEM Smoked side Markers.

-Plasti-dip'd Grille & Bumper Cap.

-XenonSupply 6000k lo & Hi.

-Nokya Hyper Yellow 2500k Fog Bulbs.

-Rexpeed EVO X Polarized Mirrors.

-Rexpeed EVO X CF Hood Dampers.

-Scorpion 3D GG Eyelids.

-Scorpion V-Lip. (Props to Corey).

-ARS HL2 Rear Lip (Awaiting paint & install....Props to jRox).

Theres a lot more to come but as for know this is it. Tell me what you think, like, dislike, etc..

Here's a few pics from my album. Not really sure how to get pics uploaded on this, so bare with me for the time being.

Enjoy! :thumbup:

Update:::Just installed the K&N Typhoon SRI. Ran into an issues, idk if anyone else had this problem or not? but there was no hole in the piping for the 90o fitting where the rubber tube was connected back to the engine. I had to drill a 1/2" hole but everything works now. The response and growl on this thing is amazing. If you guys are looking to pick one up, I got mine from Amazon.com new for $234 w/free super saver shipping...it shipped the same day.

Next will be an exhaust-leaning towards the Greddy SE but if anyone has any ideas or suggestions please feel free to input.

I'll get some pics soon. Thanks for looking.

Im looking at getting tires for my stock wheels as well as my new rims. So I have a few questions and concerns that need to be addressed.

Im getting tires from Sailun. They dont offer our oem fitment so which is better to use for winter, 215/35/18 or 225/40/18?

As for my summer rims, I'll be getting 18x8.5 +35, I want a nice stance and a slight/stretch/poke not to crazy. what tire do you recommend? Someone told me 245/40/18. Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

225/40's on the stock wheels for winter.

245/40's is a standard size for an 8.5. So it won't be stretched.

UPDATE! No new parts at the moment but I just heard from Ryan W., my friend & one of the designers of Raceseng products. He wrote a blog article of the lancer, MOD2011, & of coarse the company, Raceseng! Some of you guys/gals might of seen my lancer w/their decals at MOD or on fb?! I was also sporting their RS Tee there-Check them out if you to do go karting or looking for a nice but subtle performance style apparel.

Also did my fogs as DRLs thanks to Sinestra's thread. Now I run my HIDS safely-not on haha. I'll get pics up tonight. I had to re tilt the fogs because they started to melt the housing and discolor my lenses. Should be fine now, hopefully.
