Last season (2007), I ran a 13.70 @ 98.9. That was my only run of the season. I was able to beat my buddy's SRT-4. I have barely been to the track since. The car is daily driven, it only gets about 18 mpg around town , but the A/C still works .








And this is the other half of my DSM collection, the 91 TSi AWD

I finally got the 5 lug conversion done! These are my winter rims with Blizzaks. They are OE Laser wheels painted black. The powerslots front and rear with Hawk pads are amazing.


I'm not scared to drive this car in the salt and crap! I Think it gives it character.

And at long last, all of my cars together.

I've been really busy this past year getting things done to the car. The main things have been the front mount, the cyclone manifold, the evo3 16g, and dsm link, as well as some powdercoating, and some small stuff. I edited my first post to reflect the new mod list. It's been too cold and salty to get any nice pics, but heres a teaser...



Compare that with the pic in the first post to get an idea of before and after.

More pics to come.
