    Well I have offically owned my car for 2 years now. Holy shit I have done alot to it.

    Went from being slightly riced out, to now IMO a pretty bad ass car for a High schooler.

    Started, it had....
    All stock del sol SI (d16z6) came with an Intake, a DOHC sticker on back, Mugen stickers on the sides.

    Now...
    GSR swap
    GSR front sway
    GSR front brakes
    ITR rear sway
    ITR LCA's
    ITR Tein HA's
    Nuespeed strut bar
    Skunk2 rear strut bar
    Rota Wheels
    Potenza s03 tires (soon to be azenies)
    VAFC
    Shave front emblem

    and for the past week, I have been driving around with no inteior. Removed the sound deading material yesterday. Was kinda a bitch (used dry ice and hammer method) I weighed it, only saved 6.4 lbs.


    So whats my fueture (SP?) plans? Not much. I have college coming up so money all my money is now going for that. If I ever happened to have some extra cash, I would like to go with a nice header (headertech, anr? Something like that). A ITR tranny swap would be nice. I would also like to build the head up. Put some Skunk2 stage 2 cams, springs, retainers and some ITR valves. If I ever had alot of money, I would like to pull my GSR engine, throw in a crappy d-series for the time being, and rebuild the GSR engine. Up the compression to about 11.5-12:1, put some toda Spec b's in there, and have one bad ass car. Time will tell.

    Thanks. As far as the whole working thing, in the spring summer and fall, I make a shit load of cash at a golf course, plus I am really good at saving money.

    Since I have college coming up, progression is going to stop pretty soon. I might do a few little things to it, but nothing seirous.

    Adam, the one time I meet you in person, you cought me right before a ton of us were heading out to eat, and I had no clue where they were going. Go to redline again so we can actually hang out.
