Re: 2008 Lancer CJ VRX - Build thread

If any of my coils break, especially being suspension I am not going to repair 1 part down the line. I'll just get it fully replaced again. Otherwise they will wear at different rates. Let's not talk about them breaking straight out the gate too they just got on ahaha. PRE UPDATE: I have the Superpr...

Re: 2008 Lancer CJ VRX - Build thread

Jeez I dont know what it was, the sticker was the size of half his boot lid lol... True but I think DI sticker is up there with some of the worst! I am not sure I haven't looked into rebuilding or spare parts. Just look after them and see how long it goes, The stock suspension lasted 140k so I am as...

Re: 2008 Lancer CJ VRX - Build thread

Yeah I am keen to get them as my control arms could still be the culprit for shit handling etc from the last time I drove. My Super Sport coils also didn't offer caster adjustment, just camber, height, damper etc. (not that I need it, I just really want my car to drive and handle rather well and loo...

Re: 2008 Lancer CJ VRX - Build thread

BUILD UPDATE: Hey lads, bit of an update for you all on the state of the lancer. MISSING DOOR: To start off - I finally got the missing door which was proving to be incredibly difficult but it is safe and secure now with a body shop painter that I know personally. He has already cleaned it up, sande...

Re: 2008 Lancer CJ VRX - Build thread

Yeah It was a tough pill to swallow. We will see if the proof is in the pudding tomorrow, as the door is being delivered by a courier I organised.... and also see the condition of it.

On track for now, but a bit of a wait until I get all the new parts on!

Stay tuned :P

Re: 2008 Lancer CJ VRX - Build thread

Another Update: Just a quick update on my lancer that is currently hoisted away back at my parents.. In my absence my father has installed a new Power steering rack and brand new front brake rotors onto my car, in an effort to fix the glaring handling issues it had. He states the steering is very di...

Re: 2008 Lancer CJ VRX - Build thread

I'm sure the paint was a good idea just never heard of it and nobody told me about it unfortunately.

I have not, but I may end up investing in a few more clamps when I get the rest of the exhaust done just to make sure that won't happen!

Waiting sucks :(

Re: 2008 Lancer CJ VRX - Build thread

Obviously welded up... I'm saying onto the cat itself not the rest of the piping... The one I have coming is mandrel bent so should be much the same. Just slightly larger as that was recommended for 4b12. No I didn't, never came across it or the idea of it so just went straight into wrapping. Christ...

Re: 2008 Lancer CJ VRX - Build thread

Re: 2008 Lancer CJ VRX - Build thread

BUILD UPDATE Starting off with the lancer alloy fuel cap.. I have no pictures right now but it's installed. It's pretty good looking plus in great condition. The installation is actually a lot more intricate then it may seem at first.... Extractors are finally in the car and running well!! Few misha...

Re: 2008 Lancer CJ VRX - Build thread

Yeah I'm looking at a new door now to replace it entirely bumble. Each to their own, your set up is actually just an air pod slapped on to the stock intake. Not a huge fan of that either... There's always a lot of discussion on them, but in the end it's what you want in your car. Thanks for that! It...
