Default Hello from Seattle

I joined the forum a while ago but never made a proper intro. My name is Zac, I'm 28 years old, married (to a woman!) and have a 2 year old daughter who tries and helps me wrench on the car sometimes. I bought a mostly stock 95 last year. I have since put in a FM2 kit, stickier tires, upgraded brakes, and other supporting mods. It's my dd but have taken it to the track once and hope to do more track time. I'll post some before after pictures because cosmetically my car looks very different now too.

I did have a question though... I noticed I can't post anything in the for sale section yet. What are the requirements for that? Thanks!

The first rule about the for sale section is that we don't talk about the for sale section.

This is how I got the car. First mod... remove vinyls! It was already in very good mechanical shape, had koni yellows with RB springs, RB sway bars, Hard Dog roll bar, but paint/clear coat was peeling.

How the engine was when I bought it.

How it is now! I've added FMII kit with GT2560R, 700cc injectors, Hydra ecu, ACT stage 2 clutch, Mishimoto rad.

I also put on some EBC greenstuff pads, 15x8 Jongbloed wheels with 205/50/15 BFG Rivals.

How it sits now. Suffered a hit and run so used it as an excuse to repaint. No more stripe, added the black windshield frame and mirrors and r-pkg front lip.

Wow, those flames.

You've definitely done some nice things. What's your boost limit and power level now?

12psi just using the map from fm. It worked right out of the box. Just had to tweak the cold starts. Jeremy from fm looked over my data logs but I haven't actually had it on a dyno yet.
