Whoa, Thanks for all the positive comments guys I appriciate it.
I didn't even know the write up had been posted.

SIroller, I thought everyone had cottoned on by now, that's half the reason i agreed to the shoot. I hid the turbo for a reason and it kinda defeats the perpose of doing so if i go and show everyone, the car has actually been on the road for over 3 years now (since the transformation) and done over 25,000k's but I never started a thread about it on any forum so that may have something to do with it, but now the cat is out of the bag i guess it's time to let SC magazine have their way with it along with any public scruitiny from these photo's, hopefully not TOO much

I actually didn't build the car as a sleeper, I guess i just prefer subtle styling, that and the ET's don't fit on my 19's

Once again thanks for the input

Nah no plans at the moment, i do love racing it thought, it's fun
I wouldn't mind going back with either a 2 step or a transbrake, because i know there's more in it, not many 9 sec passes happen off ****ty 1.60 60ft times like this did. I'm sure there's a couple of pounds of boost to go before she rattles too.

XGM-747X Nah no cage, it's just a street car i drive 2-3 times a week, 98 fuel, stereo, full interior. I don't really wanna take anything away from it's main perpose. I think if i were to build a car that was more suited to racing then it would be COMPLETELY different to this one.

Fantastic. What more can you say for a car you own and built from the ground up yourself?

I'm curious as to how the manifolds look when looking into the engine bay; whether you can see them running forward rather then back.

Also, love the muffler. Everyone look if you haven't noticed it.

tim you can just see that the manifolds are pointing forwards in one of the pics, just the direction of the pipe coming from the ports to the log
