This used to be pisces' car, then Mika's.
It was already modded pretty well before I got it.
Things I've done:
o Installed the intercooler, piping, added a nice Forge BOV
o Installed the 720cc injectors
o Bought / Installed Keydiver Chip
o Destroyed, then replaced the hood.
o New paint
o 16x7 rota wheels with 225/40ZR16 Falkens
o Lots of minor cleaning and maintenance ( battery,
leather conditioner on the seats, plugs/wires, etc )
Things on the to-do list:
o Replace tranny. Argh. TRE is grinding in 3rd.
o Figure out how to get a VPC to idle well with 272 cams. May try fixed 40hz
idle from keydiver, or pitch VPC for 3G MAS.
o Install the 4 bolt innards into my 3 bolt pumpkin ( want to keep 4ws )
o Install the Evo8 struts/shocks
My freshly painted bumper cover
The hacked up bumper support
My 4 bolt. Plan is to buy a new 4ws gear, pin, and bearings, and install the guts
and axles into my 3 bolt pumpkin so I can keep the 4ws.
The ghetto-rific valve cover. Did this myself. Some minor imperfections, but I like
the way it matches the car.

I love new paint
