How do u find the SMFW. Is the vibration and chatter bearable? Have you raised your idle rpm?

Thought AR design is the superior option compared with Vrsf.

Those are 19s. i believe that 20" wouldn't drive/ride as nicely. Due to the design of the FIs, they look real big due to the thin spokes and enormous amount of space looks perfect with a BBK imo


Here's an update on how it looks now:

Well, after driving it for a month, I LOVE IT!!!!
the M factory flywheel paired with Spec's Stage 3+ clutch works beautifully. It is easy to drive, good pedal feel (not heavy at all), perhaps a little tiny bit heavier than stock that you probably won't notice.

In all honesty, the chatter isn't irritating or loud, and just for experimenting I raised the idle using MHD to 850rpm and no noticeable chatter. I have no problems with droning as well.

Power transmission is wonderful as well, haven't noticed any slippage or anything funny.

1. Pictures are coming real soon.stay tuned!

2. I don't really believe in dyno numbers due to the controversial nature of it. However, I've done some before and after 100-200 runs, at the same place, similar time and conditions.

Basically, with FBO and meth (CM7 Nozzle) 100% pump gas, after MANY multiple pulls, the car does 100-200 in average around 9.9-10 secs.

With the Pure, I managed to run 6.7- 6.9 secs on 100% pump gas and a CM14 nozzle.
A week ago, I noticed some smoke coming out of my exhaust, and thanks to the guidance and advice of Charles, I was able to diagnose and solve the problem, a faulty injector in cylinder 2. Car ran beautifully after that!

I wanna also take this opportunity to shout out to Pure Turbos. They are really an awesome company with a reliable product. The support is second to none and I'm really appreciative of Charles for patiently replying my many questions!
