Hey guys so ive been waiting awhile to make a build thread and i think its about time. Last year i picked up an 03 GGP sport design from CT with 55k miles(manual of course). This was to be my first car i had saved up from lifeguarding and teaching kids how to swim for my mods and the car (nothing bought by my parents)
the car looked like this at the time. It originally came with some adr wheels but i sold those. My first mod was my set of Fortune Auto 500 coilovers with swift springs. Was a relatively easy install and they feel great! Fast forward a couple months i ordered my set of volk racing TE37 last October the spec is 17 x 9.5 +41. Concave! You wont see another IS with this spec as there was only ten made bc it was special order. Well come back to that in a lil. So next i picked up a set of altezza window visors and there started with my relationship with Chris Wong from db8 motorsports. He delivers fast and is 100% what you order he's the best! Fast forward to this summer, i received my wheels
and got them mounted on yokohama s drives 245 x 17 all around. Around this time i started getting real obsessed with the jdm front bumper and lip so i shot chris a text and he hooked me up! Trd side skirts, jdm front bumper, lip, and jdm crash bar.
sent them to paint at my shop who does the BEST jobs. Centerline auto collision in massapequa for those long islanders reading this. In the mean time i went to install the wheels and came across some problems.
the wheel in the front rubbed against the upper control arm :0. So to get around this i ran a 2mm spacer and it still rubbed but by a mm maybe 2 so me and my buddies ground down the arm (a safe amount) and BAM it worked!
next i got a call from the shop saying my parts were ready so i went to pick that up.
was a very sketchy drive haha. Next came fitting it and puttig the volk racing stickers on the wheels
and now were at present day
Next is evo 8 Brembo BBK all around! Getting the chassis prepped for power. I have an aristo 2jzgte waiting for me and im looking to pick up a borg warner s366 in the future. I will keep updating this thread! Thanks guys for reading
