    nice, cant wait to see the finished product... unles it already is. The only thing i dont like is the Phantom Grip LSD, heard too many not-so-good things about them.

    btw, whats the cost of a project like this?

    The phantom grip was in the tranny, as in i bought the transmission like that, otherwise i would of put in a different one.
    All i'm going to day is the cost is rediculous, but it should be a pretty nice car once i finish it, which should be this weekend, the only thing left to do is re do the oil return line, it was kinda rigged up.
    But i got most of my stuff all together so it wasn't as bad as some might think.

    Phantom grip works at our levels of power output / torque.

    Also, for reference - This is a DB8

    Haha, that never even popped into my head, but hopefully the next things coming will be full coilovers and a traction bar, then coming with a new tune on some bigger injectors.

    I'm not exactly too sure, but ill need to swap injectors out before i get a retune, and i'd like to see atleast a little into the 400whp range.
