    Its been in hiding for a bit, but finally parts arrived, repairs and routine maintenance were taken care of, and back to inspection the car went. This time it passed perfectly, not a thing needed, and not an issue was made with the car.

    The car came over in pretty good condition, was a grade 4. I spent about 3 days bringing the shine back into the paint, cleaning up emblems, door jams, under the hood etc.

    at home waiting....for monthssss

    A bit about what the car has....

    The car is very stock, only mod it had was a HKS 3" high power cat back when I got it. But since I had to do a couple repairs I upgraded things while I was at it.

    The car now has BC Racing 30 way adjustabe coilovers, stage 3 clutch, splitfire coilpacks, drilled+slotted rotors, 18X8 in the front 18x10 in the rear.

    The motor was compression tested and leak down tested here Canada couple months ago, numbers came back really good 175-180 all cylinders, and there was pretty much no percentage of pressure change in the leak down either (very happy to have a healthy motor)

    Most likely I will grab a tune shortly, a nistune one (or if I can afford it, a good standalone). But first I might go ahead and get a intake, intercooler, and open up that downpipe and remaining exhaust.

    checked out Importfest the other day, cool cars and too much money as usual ;)

    went for a drive up Seymour after, was a pleasure to drive it outside of the city for once!

    Oh golly. Such a gorgeous GT-T. Makes me miss mine, but mine wasn't half the beaut yours is. I know you are very happy, because I remember that feeling! Every day I got in that thing, mmmm... I really like your wheels too, the staggered look, with the rears having a nice subtle dish is really nice. Brakes are sweet too. I love how you mention some of your mods. like they are nothing too. The adjustable coilovers will be VERY cool to dial in once you roll the fenders.

    If you get puzzled during the cooler install d_h and I have both installed this one so we could offer advice.

    I hung it from the top center part first ( after undoing everything) .

    I removed the entire smic bracket
    (There are some slightly hidden screws)

    Everything goes pretty smooth till you have to connect all the pipes, then theres alittle wiggling to get them all connected.

    ***Cut the bumper and bar last. ***

    Blitz says its a "no cut install"
    But ive seen at least a dozen that required a small 1/2"-1" cut out of the bar. I used a angle grinder for both.

    But you've probably got this so good luck... Have fun. :)

    thanks for advice! I actually went out and grabbed an angle grinder :)

    I got all the tools so it should go smoothly!
