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
      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.

      hahah, yes it is, but only in certain forms of light, the doors werent blended, and ask my friends, itdrives me crazy when I see it. it will get fixed eventually, the BT build and bay were more importnat to me at the time and I didnt know enough about paint.

      As for the alternator, i tried disassembling my oem 120 and broke the volatage regulator and couldnt get the casing off without cutting wires. So this is still in the works, but we will see.

      The bay was filled with steel sheet metal anda MIG welder. The manifold, inc piping, DP, dump tube, WG flanges and bov flange was all done by my freind Jake with an Invertig. Manifol is equal length ss weld els, AMS cast collector and vibrant headflange. Backpurged. I have some pics at home, ill throw them up later, if you have a cell # pm it to me and ill send you a text pic right away.

      thanks,


      EDIT: Invertig 201

      Very well done, wish more people were focused on Function over Form.
