      This car is non-stop awesome! Can't help but feel a connection between this and that orange mk1 from the Netherlands with the d90's. Keep up the stellar work.

      i know what you mean.
      said totaled car wasnt supposed to be a DD.
      this:

      was where i stood in my build.
      and the vw (downgraded to daily, as it was the lesser of two evils) was broken, so i took the "nice" car to work...and it never made it home

      i hear what you say 100% it CANT be a daily. just a toy
      and i laughed at your
      "Some people have drug addictions, others gamble or party. I spend money on cars" because thats almost exactly what i tell my friends when they ask why i spend so much on them, and never go party

      i wish i had known about that optima place you talked about!
      i forked out retail at autozone this summer for my new battery :/

      I never heard it said this way When i'm always going into a build, it's with daily driver in mind so i build around that. even though my latest build won't see the road for maybe 4x a week, i still build with function in mind.

      What your HP goals? I'm about to dyno mine in a few weeks & hoping to make 450 with as low boost as i can.

All his batteries are NOS, he tests them/charges them, and if they are good he sells them for damn good prices.
      Thanx I sent him an email.

      It's honestly a great deal for skirts. You get every rivot and screw and you have the cleanest OEM skirts around because many fear to go to the dealer. I bought a new set 5 years ago that I wish I still had.

      For the record. This is the very route I've been wanting to go with my car since day one but obnoxious amounts of work and overtime leave me just enough time to barely enjoy time with friends and family that I dont see that often. I've bought and sold numerous manifolds and turbos that were supposed to be for my car. I always end up selling my parts to more motivated people than myself.(For more money of course)

      It's funny. I've never seen the OP post before and this thread has really got me itching to tear into my car.
