      Thanks for all the compliments everyone, it truly means a lot to have others appreciate the work we put into this car.
      as for the mirrors, I can respect the hate, because its usually a 50/50 thing with those, I knew that when I bought them (and even thought it myself)
      but they grew on me and give my car a unique look that I have grown to love.

      thanks tommy, wheels were in the works, but ive never been a wheel guy, so it takes a lot of time and convincing, and i get really picky. Grids were in the works, and now they have kinda gone away. WE will see. thanks for all the positive feedback

      kiddie, thanks! keep an eye out for us at h20, i can give rides if there is a demand. and unfortunately IL doesnt let your go from letters>#'s>letters. other wise theyd already be on. Some other ideas like "kthnxbi", "thrtyar", "30 Are" etc have been foating around tho.

      thank you, previous ECU owner had a similar setup, made 420whp at 27psi, Dom and I hit 28 the other night in third while testing out the MBC, but i keep it around 24 right now. MORE than enough for the streets around here haha, and my poor tires

      Thanks Aaron, sleeper look makes me want to keep the LBS/modest exterior, but we will see, i know you and the tex will hate me for it haha.

      You have to see this car in person to appreciate it. A+ Btw, you still owe me a ride foo!
      RJ, i love you, no homo, and thanks for the trade, the MBC seems to be acting a little better with the 30r. And just so i dont leave you out,
      thanks for your help as well with the most recent installs. (and future)

      haha, i agree, i bring the car to a local show/cruise night around here, and it usually consists of older guys in muscel cars,
      all they seem to ask or seem curious about is if my car "is a drift car" lol.

      I forgot where I got the idea, but it helped immensely, esp when the build takes a few months like this one did.

      I havent tried eating in there yet, but theres a first time for everything. ALthough when doing my valve seals, I was able to kinda curl up and sit in the DS area pretty comfortably haha

      Amazing work, man. I wish I had half the determination and skills that you do.

      I really like how your bay has that bit of color in it... Super Sleeper Status.

      thanks rictus! i dont know about though lack of skill set thing on your end, but any project just requires devotion! and having a g/f that likes cars/vws helps, because when you say you're in the garage, the response isnt always negative!

      The last few months have been kinda troubleshooting months and i still have some issue right now, (axle grinding and vibrations from what i think is uneven motor mounts) And the car smoked for a bit, went through axles etc. I also have worked in the city all summer and take the train, so the car barely gets driven during the week. But I have every intention of taking it to school this year. Whether or not it will see much snow is another thing. So to answer your question, it isnt driven daily, but could be if I wanted to, i just havent had a need for the car much this summer.

      the stag 5 clutch, being a 6 puck (sprung hub thank god) makes dailiying it a little more cumbersome, but you get used to it. the wiring, bodywork, and overall setup is working tho. No a/c though, gotta like the heat and fumes

      Glad I could help out man

      You've inspired me to do a big turbo on my car now... Pretty sure it'll be doing down this winter but it won't be exactly the same as yours.

      good luck getting it all sorted

      i would be keeping everything stock though, just cleaning it all up. i just dont want to build something that isnt reliable on a daily basis.

      I too love the wrinkle black finish, its surprisingly easy to keep clean too and resisits knicks and scratches a lot. I did it with the ko4 piping and never looked back.

      Rudi!, we will have to do a pull, although im not holding my breath haha, ill have to throw her into "high" boost mode for sure. im glad to see there are still people out there that have both form and function

      not sure about DB yet, i didnt get a goodie bag last year and IL all the way to about 50 mi outside of OC kinda sucked? the coolest part was meeting at the mall, so idk if i wanna pay for it.

      Well thats a shame dude. Coming all the way from the midwest kinda sucks regardless. And meeting at the mall is what its all about anyway. There really were not any goody bags last year only decals and Tshirts, but we are working on getting that situated for this year along with a lower registration price. So hopefully you will reconsider. Think about all the pulls you could do from the mall on down to OC. That alone would be worth it imo

      Devin, I want to officially congradulate you and give you the credit you deserve for all that you've accomplished and all the progress you have made ever since youve gotten Blair. Through all her transformations and stages, Ive watched you grow, knowledge-wise and with all the dedication and time that you have put into making her look as amazing as she does today. You have worked for all that the finished product has turned out to be, through research, error, and patience. You have done it right, and I will always support the hobby that brings you happiness, further knowledge, and gratification because of the hard work that you, yourself, have put into her. She looks amazing Dev and I can't wait to see what's next for her - as long as it doesn't involve the grinder

      Awesome work Devin.

      Now get back to work and get that alternator powdercoated to match your intercooler pipes.
