My EM2

Well, following along with some of the other lurkers, here are a few pics of the ride...they go in order from old to new, so you will notice a couple of differences between the pics.

Anywhoo:









Probably should have cleaned her before I took that one lol.

Re: My EM2

Thanks for the comments! And to answer a few questions...

Quote:

Nope, stock engine aside from a ram air intake and cat back system, so to answer the second part, yes lol. I wanted a volt meter and oil pressure somewhere, so that's what I went with. The boost/vacuum gauge is just wishful thinking.

Quote:
is that a carputer or just a headuint?
Yessir!
Asus AT5IONT-I board, integrated atom dual core, hdmi out, 512mb dedicated video memory, 4gigs DDR3, 64gb SSD. All connected to the 8" Touch screen. I just finished it last week.

Well the majority of you have the right idea, I got rid of them as soon as winter hit. I'm looking into new ones next spring, but no idea what yet.

Also what I was hoping to get done after the snow goes away

It's a 4 port USB hub I mounted in that little hole there so I can plug in a memory stick, joypad, mouse, ipod, etc.

Re: My EM2

Lol, carputers are awesome,
I want my own, when i can afford it

Have you upgraded your alternator? You seem like running a LOT of electronics in your car, how's the system holding up?

I would suggest more ricey rims than ghetto rims on a vic
Something like Konigs/BuddyClub with red lip would look wicked on your car

Btw, start a build thread! I would like to see your progress, if you taken pix

Re: My EM2

I actually like Rotas, just not slipstreams
Grid racing looks nice on a stock vic with lip

I'm debating wether on getting some Rota Grids or Konig bumps on mine

IMO, these would look good on your car OP, if you slammed it

Lol I don't mind the questions...but its not molded in, its a Liliput screen I got from ebay...pretty basic, and I took the back off and bolted the screen in the frame right to the car, slightly recessed though. The carputer itself is in the dash right behind the screen...very tight fit!

And about those Konigs, very nice...what is the approx retail on those puppies? I don't have a lot of cash to spend...the old ones were 1200 including tires, so I don't wanna spend all that much more if possible.

Oh and I do have pics of the carputer during initial construction, which I could post sooner or later...

Lastly, because I forgot to answer the question; the alternator in the car is an oem replacement for one that blew, but it's rated at 85 amps, as compared to the oem 70 amps, so it's a bit better at handling everything.

Re: My EM2

Konig bumps run anywhere between 90~150 each, depending on size.
So with tires probably around 700 installed, then balancing, alignment, and lowering springs, will run you a grand total, not more

and nice replace on alt, is it rewound?
I wanna get mechman alternator.....but....then again, im not planning to throw more money into my vic, maybe next car

Re: My EM2

haha.. yea, a drop would do you well. How much do you plan to lower it?

oh, and there's a dude selling konig feathers for $250. I'm sure shipping to canada would suck though.. One of the tires has a bit of a dent in it tho.. I'd nab em if I didn't have rims, but that's just me.

Re: My EM2

I'm located in Barrie Ontario, so that place won't ship for free although wheels next does, and they offer some decent wheel and tire packages including mounting and balacing, so I might see what they have available. And in terms of the drop, I would really like to look at some "inexpensive" height-adjustable coilovers, cause i live in a small city now, so I can go pretty low in the summer, but I'm still driving it in the winter, so I'll need to be able to raise it back up when the snow comes.

Re: My EM2

I think Kenny is confusing coilovers and coilover sleeves, they aren't the same thing. For a decent set of sleeves you wouldn't be able to spend less than $450, for full coilovers you'd be starting around $1000. Not to mention if you want to run slammed, your going to spend at least another $600 replacing other suspension components or they'll start failing. Before you guys jump on me about pricing, he's in Canada so things cost a lot more even shipped from American companies.

If money's tight, lowering springs are the answer for you. A set of tein stechs only costs $175, they won't cause major problems on an otherwise stock suspension and you can just swap your OEM springs back in for the winter. I swap between lowering springs and OEM springs every winter, and it takes me less than 2 hours.

Re: My EM2

Yea I figured as much, although there are coils you can get for about 375, and I can't remember the name, but they were a full bolt on kit, minus the camber adjustment parts and so on...but reviews were saying that for a dd, they do the job, not that I'm interested in purchasing something that cheap, but just pointing it out. I still have time though to make up my mind, with the amount of snow we've been having.
