Advan RZs in the Flesh…

24 Jul

Customer’s set of wheels we  ordered.

How clean are these?

Some pretty damn good concavity for a 19 x8.5 with a +45 offset if I may say so myself.

Billion Racing Power Steering Fluid Reservoir

24 Jul

First one I’ve seen up close as not too many people are willing to drop the cash for this thing. Luckily one of our customers stepped up to the plate and did. Rare enough piece for me to take pictures of it.

Laugh if you will but ask yourself this; is your power steering reservoir dual “chambered” to remove bubbles formed when your power steering fluid boils (think drifting)? I bet it isn’t. 🙂

Unfortunately, some swaggerless shop  is going to copy this guide and use it on their website.  Remember where you saw this copy first!

HKS USA has released a Full Turbo Kit, Front Mount Intercooler, and Racing Suction Intake for the 2008+ Subaru STi. The Full Turbo kit includes the following: GT3037S turbo with a 0.87 A/R, GT II 50mm wastegate, uppipe, downpipe, bypass pipe, champer Pipe, suction Pipe, water lines, oil lines, and supporting parts. The FMIC kit comes with a large 23.5x10x4 inch core and all piping needed for installation. The major downfall to the FMIC is it requires the use of a smaller battery and is flanged for a universal HKS BOV not the stock BOV.

Voltex Z33 “Wide Fender Kit”

24 Jul

I don’t like to post stuff off of other blogs (this picture is from the Voltex blog) but I felt like posting this.

Here in the states we call these fender flares and I saw a very similar looking set in aisle three at autozone.

I’d like to see where Voltex is going with these before I form my opinion.

Lucky Bastid…

So Adam struck gold  last week when the homey Logan over at Work Wheels USA informed him that he had found an extra VS-TX in the exact size, offset and color that Adam is running on the rear of his car. Normally this wouldn’t really be a big deal but when your rocking wheels that have been discontinued for going on two years its “major win!” Nothing like rolling on a set of discontinued wheels on New York streets and having a flawless back-up plan just in case your wheels lose the war against the Belt Parkway.

I wish Logan would had found a complete set of four, I would have been all over them! I love these wheels!

Logan, Adam and I are trying to figure out a way to mount this fifth wheel on the back of Adam’s Z to replicate that old-school Caddy look.

By the way if you haven’t peeped Logan’s blog yet you better have a good reason, like you just busted  out of coma or something. 🙂  Click and enjoy my fellow Work aficionados… Logan’s New Blog
