I'm not much for starting threads but but i figured i might as well have at least one to post up some pictures and share my modest progression with my car. Be warned that this will be a pretty slow moving thread for three reasons. First, i am on an extreme budget. i try to spend my money wisely when comes to my car and keep my other priorities in check. Second, i am very picky. i think long and hard about what parts i want, what look i am going for, and so on. Finally i am incredibly cheap. i don't like spending my hard earned money unless i know what i am spending it on will be great quality and a great price.
on to the pictures!
My Automotive Background:
My First Car:
1983 Datsun 280zx - Killed by Rust
1996 Honda Prelude base
(H23 motor swap, DC Sports Header, Skunk2 Exhaust, AEM intake Motegi Wheels, JDM headlamps, Clear front turn signals, Custom tail lights, crazy stereo system). started to piece together a turbo setup... then figured might as well get a turbo car and go from there.
1997 Eagle Talon TSi FWD
(Evo III 16G Turbo, GReddy FMIC, 1st gen BOV, Dejon Tool 'L' Pipe, Injen Intake, Devo MBC, Tial 38mm, Apexi N1 Turbo-back, 510cc injectors, Walbro 190 F.P, Apexi Super AFC & Auto Timer, Tuned by Devo, Autometer Guages I.P.T. Transmission, Eibach prokit, Enkei wheels) car was pretty quick, could keep up with my buddy's Ws6 from a roll, which was cool. But the car got too much attention from the wrong people, was uncomfortable and well, a DSM.
Current car: 2006 GLI Package 2 with DSG
8 Days into ownership... bone stock.
