Yeah which is why I was surprised you're using what 195 width tyres?! I would've thought that even with a helical LSD you'd go with at least 225 width considering it's FWD...I mean that's serious power for an FWD, the wheelspin must be crazy!!!

Anyway about the springs what are the stock rates? Also with 400 and 450 the ride must still be pretty decent. But how's the handling? She must still flex a lot in tight turns right?

I've been in a tuned E30 running custom progressive lowering springs, 550F and 650R and it's like 2.5"F and 2"R raked lowering job, car's on 19"ers pushing out around 535 wheel hp (Street tune ) But yeah point is ride is hella harsh, but the car really sticks! Do you notice any flex with the current springs and the roll bar?

Jitu, this may be the stupidest question to ask here. but its based on an observation from the pics that you had posted. Its got to do with your front number plate. I got mine(HSRP) done at Honda during my last service and they screwed up I got this Looong ugly crooked front plate and they said some crap about it being the same size as the back... yours looks great and I wanted to know where are how much! sorry that this post is on a MOD thread

It never ends, does it? Congrats on the new upgrades. How about a ride?

Can you please explain the circled part? Is this your crankcase evacuation setup? If so, how does your setup work?

The tyres are 205 50 15 Advan Neovas.
Ride is bit bumpy now otherwise its rock solid in straight & fun taking turns .

But the real test for car handling will be on Track day. once i have everything in order i.e after all 4 shocks rebuild.

Yep, that's a custom home made Crankcase evacuation setup, what i have done is taken 2 outlets from blocks rear port using -10An rubber hose & fed it to custom made can, i have made 6 layers of baffling inside the can which separates oil from vapour, All vapours are vented to atmosphere & the oil is drained back to the block. you can really see small amount of vapour coming out of filter. It also helps release all excessive pressure build inside the blocks there by increasing life of your Rings & Seals.

2 outlets since 1 is for oil drain back? Where in the crankcase are these ports located? Are they existing ports? Is your PCV still operational?

EDIT: You have a Edelbrock manifold, so your PCV is not operational, right? So one of the ports in the crankcase is the original PCV port? Which is the other port?
