      I blew out one of my front 205/40/ZR17. So until my new tires come in for the front I am going JDM style running the stockers up front with some nice 17's in the back. I get a lot of thumbs up from the honda crowd

      haha how rude of me!
      Here are some recent pictures.


      Today I finished the timing belt change on my 03 Passat 1.8Turd
      Today also I put in a new fog light where my glass fell out and broke. Thanks Triple Seis!

      My engine is really cluttered, gonna clean it up some. Its pretty much all custom fabricated with the exception of C2 MAF and chip and Kinetic manifold.
