05 r53 in phoenix

Hey there,
I'm Rob just picked up an 05 r53, named it Pico.
It's lowered on coilovers, has an adjustable rear sway bar, intake, and a Borla exhaust. It's in decent shape.

Thanks for having me

Welcome to the Forum. Love the Phoenix area. You have some great golf courses out there, and the drive up Hwy 17 through Sedona/Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon is awesome.

Welcome hope you enjoy.

I would advise checking out the front suspension as those are the Hsport camber plates and those bolts are usually more toward the center to add neg camber. But yours are toward the outside so maybe on wrong or cambered out. Just something I quickly noticed.

Good looking out, thank you! It pulls a hair to the left, i was thinking about getting it aligned. I was also unimpressed with turn in compared to my old miata I had, so that is probably part of why.

Any idea if that is one of your pulleys?

Thanks!

I've seen enough of them to know it doesn't look right, but if the camber is off that would effect the turn in like that.

That isn't our pulley as ours has a WMW on it. But more than likely it's a 15% as that is the most common. That is the old Promini, or Helix pulley from years ago.
