Hello everyone. Been a while since I've been here. I'm putting up my lastest toy. Kind of feeling it out right now as I do not want to get rid of it. But certain future plans of moving would make it a lot easier to do so without it.
I'm sure a lot of you remember this car. It has been on here a couple of times. I chased it around and finally grabbed it. I've really turned this car around and it's solid enough to be a daily and a lot faster than it ever has been. It's a rush to drive and puts every high end car I've come across to shame.
I got her in Feb of 2011. I've only put around 4k on it. But put thousands into her. I only used quality parts and meticulously went over everything that was cobbed. She runs like a champ and it a serious machine. It's got to be closing the gap on 400whp. Trying to get to my friend of a friends dyno to get an actual number.
Some things done.
Everything with a * before it is something I've done since owning it. Things I didn't bother posting were all the bolts nuts hoses wires & little parts replaced to put this thing back together as a solid car.
I'm sure I'm missing a few things as well.
