Re: Project Lex

Some more pics. I think I'm done with the passenger and driver side wires. One thing I may not have mentioned is I've removed my ABS, so the ABS fuse box and associated wiring is removed from the driver side. So the wire you see that I ran in that wheel well is just the brake reservoir sensor.

Passenger Side:
here you can see I extended the alternator cable about 8" or so and snaked it (and clamped it) around the bottom side there

the next few pics you can see I just used black zip ties to secure the loom. I think I'm going to go back and add a 2nd zip tie to every spot just for redundancy in case one were to break. I also had to extend that wire that runs back into the engine bay near the firewall, must be for A/C or something.



How it looks in the engine bay now.


Driver Side:

Had to extend the brake reservoir wire (forgot how much) Probably could have extended it a little more, but I think it's probably fine.

Re: Project Lex

Small update. Used some Night Shades and Clear on the front side markers to tint them a little bit. Also removed the cross webbing in the 'mouth' of the front bumper. Removed the Lexus logo. Attached the Wise front lip with some SS button head bolts.

Also inspired by Floppy's post, got some Meguiars Headlight Restore. Practiced on the high beams. Not too shabby I'd say.

Re: Project Lex

So a little more update on this project. Since Tyler was born, free time isn't really what it used to be. So I was having trouble getting it all done done. So my choices were to either let it sit another year, or ask for help. Well, DB Performance said they'd help Hoping to hit the dyno here next week! Big thanks to the guys at DB for getting a lot of this done for me, great work!

Basic rundown of what is new for this year:
- Mini wire-tuck
- FFIM installed (and everything that goes with that)
- Mini lawn battery installed
- IAT sensor installed
- Zinc/slotted front rotors and ceramic pads
- Exhaust tweaked to fit around 350z trans bracket. Also added Vibrant resonator and Vibrant muffler to keep my old man ears at peace.
- Recirc WG back into exhaust
- IS300 ignition
- Billet cover over old distributor cap
- Able to run a real intake now
- FIC 2150's

That's basically it under the hood. Once it's done on the dyno it'll head to the body shop. Body will be getting the following
- Wise style front lip (already installed).
- 97 OEM sideskirts
- Rideskinz fujin style rear lip
- Accord Spoiler
- Paint

So hoping by mid/end of May it will be ready to rock! Here's a couple teasers Jason @ DB sent me.

Exhaust tweaked around trans mount, Vibrant resonator installed


Vibrant rear muffler


Engine bay buttoned up

Not at first, but as long as everything seems fine at lower boost then I'll start slowly turning it up throughout the summer.

Are you going to run sans lights? Or is that just for tuning?
I like the front lip and side skirts. And the engine bay looks nice.

Yeah, that lip really helps out the aggressiveness of the car but still looks clean.

Leaving lights removed until post-paint.
