Reko's Blue Machine

2004 2.0L 5-spd Tidal Wave Blue

So I’ve done some smaller things already and I’m getting ready to do more. I thought I should finally start a profile thread to track changes and maybe get some constructive feedback. Been lurking and searching for a long time.

Just raided the fun fund, so more pictures and updates to come in the next few weeks. Some phone pics for now.




Most recently installed ARK DT-S Burnt Tip. Video below. Sounds OK for Oem manifolds and cats yet.


Album

Update: 9-16-12

Re: Reko's Blue Machine

Future mods/upgrades: - more detail will be added as I make decisions and complete my research or sales come up. Feel free to pm offers if you happen to be selling any of these items.

-CF hood-still can’t decide which one yet, to buy new that is. tried to buy used, but nobody wants to ship. VIS Cyber or Invader?
-f/l headlights
-Fuel system upgrade: pump, fpr, beefier fuel rail that can hold fpr
-Side skirts and rear bumper or full body kit-again can’t seem to decide
-Bigger BBK
-Front frame brace from IS
-ARK Chromoly flywheel (purchased) -need mating clutch
-SPEC stage 2 clutch? or centerforce
-Seats and harnesses
-MS3X!- still reading and learning the details
-window tinting, 35%?
-Oil pressure, vacuum gauges
-LSD-quaife
-CF hatch?

*I do actually realize that I may never get around to all of these or even develop enough power to need some of the above items. This is primarily a list of what I have to look forward too.*

Possibly FI pending a windfall of cash and time.

Let me know if I'm missing something.

Wow great looking Tiburon. Very clean, I am impressed for an 04. Are there any rust spots or major/minor dents or scratches? Pics.

Re: Reko's Blue Machine

It was my DD for the first 4 years before I had a garage. I park it for the winters but still drive it during the summer. The WI winters have left their mark on the underside. I didn't really take many pictures of it when it was new and the ones I remember taking are hiding on a back-up disk somewhere as I've change computers since then.

No major scratches and one small ding. Just under the drivers side door handle, compliments of the local Hyundai dealership. Took it in for warranty replacement of rear calipers that froze, got it back plus one ding that I see every time I open the driver door! More pictures to come once I get a chance to spend a day detailing it and lots more parts to install.


Tiny garage. Keep forgeting to take night picture with the light on, it looks sweet then.

Can't wait!!! Gonna look sweet with the blue. I think. The ARK exhaust certainly won't disappoint, quality system, I think that's a pretty good deal too.

I think back in '06. Pretty sure they were for the EVO. I'm upgrading to the brass TWM bushing now. The center of the big bushing is looking a tad oblong. I'm thinking the additional rigidness and weight will compliment my existing TWM hardware. Love to shift!

Thank you for the compliments. I guess all the hours of washing and detailing have been worthwhile.

When it's not so stupidly hot I'll take it out with a better camera

Re: Reko's Blue Machine

Niteshaded tails and poly mounts installed.

A better tails pic

Front mount:

Rear mount:

The rear mount really helped with reducing the shaking caused by just having the front poly installed. While the vibrations have been reduced, it's still really annoying to sit at a light and idle. So we'll see how the SFR torque damper handles that.
