I replaced the AC compressor and serpentine belt on my 02. I also had an oil change, rotated and balanced the wheels. The AC compressor went out a few weeks ago and I couldn't stand the heat anymore.

Redline MT-85 in the tranny. I would have easily paid twice the price if I knew this stuff was this good. All the annoying noises (dealership said they were all normal but couldn't explain any of them) that my transmission has made since it was new.... gone. I could tell a difference the moment I went to put it in reverse to back out of the garage. Great stuff.

Installed my coilovers and learned that the difference between being careful and never scraping and being careful and still scraping is exactly .5".

SOOOOO TRUE about the redline. for me it was like a different gearbox, and i changed mine out when my car had about 40k~ on it. If I could only do one thing to the car from stock, itd be that. Seriously if you haven't done it yet, do it. you dont know what youre missing.

Any pics of the coilover install? You were running RL springs before right?

Washed her this morning to take off the mildew buildup. Can't wait till the paint settles in for a good 2 months to take her in to get buffed.

Indeed, I was running RL springs before. I only took pictures of the install process along with before/after wheel gaps. I'm leaving Thursday morning for NICOfest at the Dragon so I'm sure I'll have plenty of pics of the car when I come back and I'll be sure to post some in the lowered thread. I left the coilovers exactly as they came since I figured it was a good starting point. Can't quite tell if the rear is settling any more or not but the front went right down to 25.5" at the fender.

How much wheel gap did you have in the front with the RL's? I need to find a set of springs for the front to match the back. Which is slammed on Tein S.

Car was 26" up front with the RL's. Still amazed at how much of a difference that 0.5" of lost clearance makes. I could obviously raise it but it looks good and I was already planning on having a custom y-pipe made when I switch to headers.
