Did some more to the tC...(A lot more to come next week)

Interior and audio were modified along with some misc lighting upgrades. The stuff to come is for the interior. Mods bought but not yet installed are: Redline hood shock, Kaminari 4pc body kit, Kaminari fiberglass wing, TVM short shifter, MOMO shift ****, VHT Racing-Red caliper paint, and some Blitz dress-up engine goodies. Now for what's on as of TODAY!!!

Mods for interior and lighting are now as follows:

Paint matched trim
Stewart Warner Boost/Vac Gauge
Stewart Warner A/F Gauge
Stewart Warner Blue LED conversion kits
Apexi RSM with G-Sensor
Kenwood KDC-MP278 Headunit
JL 500/5 5-channel, regulated amp
JL 10W3 Sub
JBL GTO series components (front)
Kenwood 6.5" Coaxials (rear)
XM MiFi system, hardwired
Blue Cathode Interior light kit
OBX Aluminum Pedals
Sensoro Bullet Radar Detector
OEM rear-view upgrade, with HomeLink system
Monster Cable wiring
Police Grade strobe system in headlights and tailights
Redline Blue under-body neon lighting system

PICS:

Overall dash layout...


Dash view while driving at night...


Apexi RSM - custom mounted


Stewart Warner gauges with blue LED kits


Sensoro Radar detector:


Custom Trunk:


1 of 4 installed strobes (in all headlights and tails)


Hidden Brain for strobes (AC voltage, adjustable pattern, 12 strobe capability)


Under body at night (pic taken in garage):


Oh yess....

The body kit and wing will finish the exterior, especially once most of the decals come off. The car has those gauges because it will be boosted in about 1 month or 2, after the first couple shows are out of the way. We're working on making this tC pretty fast, and it's definately capable. This tC is my daily driver so downtime is a little hard for me.

Any suggestions guys feel free to put them out there. I'm shooting to keep the car clean, but while still making it stand out... Workin on power, looks, and ICE, what more could you ask for haha.

I'd do strokes on my car... but doesn't it kinda ruin the headlight housing? Isn't there a way to make it look like you don't actually have the strobes?

There is on some cars. One of the guys on my car team has an 05 Civic Coupe and he got the strobes put right in the headlight reflector part. You pretty much can't see them unless you get right up to it and look for it.

I'll take new exterior pics today, my other one's are kind of dated (snow).

Oh yeah you can turn them on, highly illegal though haha... They're so bright you'll see them reflecting off trees while you're driving, even with the headlights on...

looks great as long as you relize how hot that strobe brain will heat up to......leave it on for a couple hours and you'll be at risk of starting a fire in your car. Notice how the ENTIRE back of it is metal? Thats because you're supposed toi mount it flat on metal in the car it distribute the heat.

Leaving it in the position is risky, but its your car.....I have mine mounted flat in the trunk, on bare metal......your call, my $0.045

The guy that installed it is the one who does all the NH police cars. So I think it should be ok, or he def wouldn't have done it.

The cathode lighting system is a stock upgrade bought when you purchase the car. $245 at the Scion dealership, installed.

Because I'm a realist. The Evo costs a lot more for insurance, and gas... The tC is very reliable, still fast, and sips gas. With a turbo the car puts down 352whp and 348 torque on a stock block. That's fast enough for me.

Thats really a unique place to mount your radar....is there a specific reason why you mount it there except for asthetic reasons?

I mounted it there because no one know's it's there unless you're inside staring at it. Cops usually hate seeing the radar detector. It's well hidden from outside view.

Yes... I definately miss AWD traction, but I got that back with my other car, so the tC is still fun.
