Installed some H&R springs a couple days ago, they ride awesome and the stance looks awesome! I can't wait to get some wider wheels. The worst part was definitely the rear interior disassembly. Put a before an after pic in there and you can barely tell but it's much more noticeable in person. Now to find a place in SD I trust to align it.

The car has been torn apart for a little over two weeks. Sent the bell housing to ATR for their latest bell housing rattle fix.

I welded (horribly) some GESI high flow cats on the mid pipe to hopefully keep the smell down and the cops away.

The turbo's look completely oil free on both side which is awesome considering I have 90k on this thing.

While I'm doing all that, i'm replacing the OE downpipes with some ets 3" that I picked up off ebay (only way you can get them shipped to CA lol). They came wrapped and are looking a little sad after I took the exhaust wrap off. I'm looking at getting them ceramic coated with cerakote so hopefully they last. Not sure if i'm going to wrap them after. I have 50 ft of DEI titanium wrap laying around. I think as of now I will. I really want to keep the heat down. Also got some new denso upper o2 sensors because you guys know the deal with trying to use the oe ones, tried to remove one and it was obviously crossthreaded.

Got new gaskets, 3 new studs and arp nuts and washers for the downpipes reinstall as well.

Nice.. keep the updates coming. Are you reusing the studs for downpipes and replacing just the nuts.
