Nice, that damper does seem like a good idea. It would be nice if there was one sold for us.

yea thats the thing with our cars. after initial bolt-ons, it all quickly becomes custom work.

I was going to paint my badges, did the rear first, long story short...failed. I blame it on the cold, but I got pissed and ripped it off. Today I ordered front and rear badges, already painted with 3M tape, so I will stick those on. I also got a interior led kit for map lights, dome light, trunk light, and licence plate. Stoked about that!

careful with the license plate lights. VA doesnt like anything other than stock or white.

looking forward to trying out the dampener as well as an exhaust refit. that should help my numbers.

Hell yeah! Im down for a meet. For the moment im into the 100 or less mods, lol. so things like the dampener, interior, visual things, may get started with strut/sway bars since i got springs already. And chris, F the police, lol.

Yeah, but the funny thing is, the cops here in portsmouth are oblivious to anything, theres only one city i have to be careful in and thats chesapeake. I was trying to decide which way to go with the mods, and i picked interior/visual for now. Maybe after some time there will be a little more available performance wise.

that was my thinking too but i dont think there will ever be that much for us besides custom performance. we lucked out when some corolla guys wanted the long tube headers and midpipe. xD just happened to hop on the bandwagon lol.

corolla guys are doing R&D right now on a turbo for the 2zr-fe but its still a work in progress. if anything it opens up options. i think itll be overpriced for what it is and a guy there is possibly doing a NOS DIY so that would be nice to look at.

The 2zr can handle a 80shot .. anything more and I think its overdoing it without a meth kit or some internals.
