    Day something... the other thread was gone so i started a new one. i didnt do this all in one day also, it was more like project of the month.

    finally got around to finishing the evolution hyperground kit. it doesnt add horsepower, but the motor is smoother in general. thank you free 4ga wire and free terminal connectors :) now if that oil leak was only far far away....

    put on the front strut bar. it probably looks wierd but because of how high the intake manifold sits it doesnt fit the other way. it looks out of the way, though... until i need to add brake fluid. <_< i had to relocate one of the sensors about 3 inches, but that wasnt a problem.

    finally supercoated the roof with like 5 coats of black, and 5 coats of clear. next week i will wetsand it to get rid of that horrible sparkle effect. i also painted the pillars and trim. helloooooo overspray. i removed the shitty plastic trim strip from each side. someday i will get around to taking the tape off.

    i havent really done anything with the interior... ive replaced the shift boot and knob (its a very heavy knob) with walmart shit. i dont care for the color but i like the style of the knob. you can see my boost (hooked up, but no boost yet) and tachometer. my a/f gauge is behind the steering wheel next to the boost gauge. ive had that replacement seatbelt sitting on my shelf forever. maybe i will put it in tomorrow :)

    shitty sony subs ive had for a year (brand new last weekend thank you best buy) with 2 1/2 years still left on the warranty that im trading for a sweet 12' mtx sub that totally outfuckingpounds them. i need to get that box out anyways, so i can put on my rear strut bar. what you dont see in the trunk is total rubberized soundproofing, and the trunk skeleton and spoiler is filled with expanding foam so i dont have any rattle at all.

    and i leave you with this one.... :ph34r:

    Good. My exhaust is the same way - had it made at a muffler shop (watched em do it so it was done right). I have a greddy evo lookalike arospeed muffler on it, and it sounds great.
