Very nice build. I have a quick question. What does the AGP accumulator & breather do? And is it fine without one?

The accumulator & filter collect oil from blow back instead directing it back to your intake & then making its way back to your turbo & intake manifold.

Here is a detailed thread on it:
Breather and Accumulator GROUP BUY PACKAGE!!!

Alright, got my tech to install my camber bolts & realign the car today....YaY. The tech set each side to -1.5 & told me to ride that way for a little bit & bring it back in to realign. He said next time he would bump it up to -2.0 which is about much as he said he could get out of the upgraded R-Spec camber bolts.

Not for daily driver use, because it will wear the inside of your tire tread prematurely, but for the track YES. Since this car is being used for both & I go through tires pretty quick anyways, I decided to go ahead & adjust the camber on mine.

Here is a cople of threads from TiC that will give you great insight:

This question would be better asked of MODE, TiC, RMR or one of our other vendors that compete, because I'm still new to the whole racing thing. I learned alot from the just the TiC threads I linked for you though. Hopefully in a couple of years I will be able to answer questions of this nature in detail.

I can tell you that when cornering, the centrifugal force produced while in the turn will cause postive camber to occur. Therefore having negative camber to begin with will help compensate for this. How much is needed would probably depend on many factors including speed, radius & arc of corner, etc....This is one area that I want to learn alot about, so I can eventually tune my own suspension.
