BTW, thanks Pat for leaving the pics of your lowering operation intact, even though you edited out all of your replies to that thread. The pics were invaluable!

Eh, you've still got one badass car, and i'm sure you've got some crazy plans...You are, after all, requiring 100lb injectors...
Good to see you've grooved the head. More people need to read up on it. I've been reading on it since before I could understand it.

eBay, look for 'vortex generator' - $20. Heh. There was a post about them around here a month or so ago, might search for that too. And thanks!

Thank you kindly! It's a tad too low, it's already a 1/4 inch higher or so up front, beacuse it's on coilovers and springs with almost no travel so it was slamming through on hard bumps. Rode nicely on the highway though. I'm taking care of the springs though.
Anyways, more bigger photos of my own.


I'm happy with it's height. Just a ^touch^ higher. But like, a half inch or less.

Thumbs up

Saw your post GrandmaSideways and wanted to tell you struck gold! Extremely nice find and hard to find a well maintained wagon with alot of extras. Anyways here's my baby ..... she sits low but not as low when she's sporting the Gem's. Also when's it's real sunny out the tint looks heavily tinted.

Yes.
Columbas are 43mm offset.
In this photo It has 32mm spacers on the front and 25mm spacers on the back as I didnt have another pair of 32mm spacers at the time and I was having some tyre clearance issues on the front with the lower coilover perch.

New wheels are on their way. They're 38mm offset and will have 32mm spacers all round.

EDIT: Where can I buy spacers and how much?
