Ive painted the side skirts black instead of the asteroid silver it looks alot neater, got new fuel pump and cleaned out lines as was having a bit of a problem. Then my engine decided to **** itself and the car is sitting in my girlfriends front yard, so saving for new engine thinking of turboing it while i have to get a new engine anyway but will see what happends.

cheers mate, not to bad went back to stock intake set up for now as i was having idle problems with the other one. am saving up for new short stroke shocks and lowered springs at the moment, so ****in hard to save up for **** when you only get $250 a week and $100 of it goes before you even get it

i have heard things about putting the afm in the pipeing (between inlet mani and the cooler) making the car run smoother. maybe look into this? its still legal as long as you retain the air box as opposed to a 'dose pipe' (i believe)

its NA mate, i was having trouble coz i had a little breather on the back oil breather on the rocker cover, instead of it going into the intake piping.

Dont worry about red or white walls man, imo they're over done so many people thrashing it out, just chill with the normal sidewall colour haha.

Hurry up and put boost through it you sickcuunt

White venetians make the car look so much better too.
