It was raining basically all of my break so I didn't get a chance to wash/ wax the car as hoped, but here is an update on the mods i've done in the past 6 months or so...
New System, two eathquake DBXi-12D's (these are the older models though, not the new one's they have on the website) powered by a Power Acoustik OV2-2600, and ran through a Raptor 1 farad Cap.
I bought this whole setup from my buddy who got a new truck b/c he threw a rod in his old one, and he had to buy short firing subs now. I paid 200 bucks and gave him my old pa system for this setup, so It was not a bad deal, esp because I sold my old kenwood amp for 80 bucks, my old magnum amp/subs for 100 (50 each) so I really only paid 20 bucks for this entire setup..not a bad deal! lol (next time I'm home I will make a video of the sound, its crazyy.
Now, do NOT start another discussion about cap's being a bandaid...I got the cap with the system for an extra 20 bucks, so it was worth the money. And I still plan on getting a 200 amp HO alt. when I can afford it.... had to get that out there lol
Two things..I know the cap has just kinda been tossed in there and wired s**t, and yes I know I am running 8 gauge wire..I plan on fixing both of these when I rewire my amp to my new HU. (the car is not driven much b/c its sitting at home while I am at school)
I bought a new head-unit as well, to finish off my system, I just have not had a chance to install it yet due to a lack of time. This is going to be the first thing on my agenda when I get home for Christmas break.
Incase you didn't see my other post, these are my tinted tail lights. I painted the lense silver a few years ago, to get the look of the covers, and now I went back and tinted the rest.
I also tinted the fogs, the headlights are next in line... (i'm just waiting to replace the halo's with brighter ones b4 i tint)
(note...I was painting my grille in that picture so the middle bar was not on it yet..incase it looks funny lol)
I am ordering a black bow outline for the grill, I think that will really tie it together
and I need to remove that stupid skull license plate frame... lol
My DP cracked a while ago so I had it replaced..no more u-bend
I also made a CAI using a k&n filter, and a modified airbox to block of hot air. I'll have to take a picture of it next time I'm home though.
Just a quick list of the things I will be doing in the near future
Interior LED's from sauce
Gauges and HVAC from BBE
(possibly) magnaflow catback (instead of my straightpipes) with an exhaust cutout
pcm (thinking zzp, possibly overkill though)
My brain is freezing now, and I can't seem to think of my list...lol oh well, you get the basic idea, there's a lot more to come
