My car?

Joez Intake, Alphawerks Header, PRE custom exhaust w/ Top Speed titanium muffler, JIC rear suspension brace, PLP strut bar set w/ trunk bar, Tein RA coilovers, TRD Red Sway bars, VIS carbon fiber hood, carbon fiber trunk, carbon fiber TRD spoiler, and then a bunch of cosmetic stuff.

Haven't gotten a body kit yet, I need to fill out a insurance claim first -someone scratched my car. Haven't boosted it yet either, the car is still on the extended warranty.

I'd like to get something to adjust/correct the camber (it has been lowered quite a bit) but I don't know what's the best way to go about doing that... Any ideas?

You will love the Portland area. Not only are you 1.5 hrs from the beach (Hwy 101) & several mountains (Mt. Hood, St. Helens, Rainier); all with hundreds of miles of scenic driving. Downtown Portland is a great city with fabulous dinning, art, theater, shopping, and a great night life. Also, if you're into wine Oregon has a world-class reputation for fine wines all within 30 minutes of downtown. I'm a CA transplant who moved up here in 2000 and will never go back. If you can deal with the rain in the winter you can't beat the quality of life up here. The summers are almost perfect, hardly ever gets above 90 and averages upper 70's most of the time.

The tint laws are fairly lax, at least compared to CA. I've got 30% all around and I believe you can go darker. In my experience the cos aren't to bad but the speed limits on the hwys are pretty lame (55 max in most places). Car registration in OR is only $54 for two years regardless of the vehicle and there is smog program, called DEQ, which you have to pass every two years.

I'm not familiar with where Mt hood CC is but there are plenty of suburban neighborhoods around the city. The housing prices are very good compared to other major cities.

I hope this helps in your decision making. If you have any other questions shoot me a PM or email at [email protected]. Oh, I live in Beaverton which is on the west-side of downtown. Good luck!

Most of the roads are in decent shape but there are some older hwys that a pretty rough. The scenery really makes up for the rough roads though.

As for the weather in central OR - You're definitly going get all 4 seasons. Meaning snow in the winter, hot summers and everything in between. It's a high desert climate. If you like the outdoors, central OR has it all.

That's crazy, small damn world. Yeah, Ive seen you're MSM parked just off Horizon, very nice look and tastefully done. I've admired your ride on more than one occasion bro. Did you do the work yourself, or know of a quality shop? I've got a laundry list of things I'd like to do but f*^k paying the labor to do it unless you know it's getting done right. I'd like to check out the ride one of these days. What your name? As the sig suggests, I'm Rob.

Did you do the install on your shock & springs? I'm wanting that exact set-up. I just had a deal for some used prokits fall through b/c the install was too much.
