Got video, it was just video of nothing, some kind of cloth?

Oh and it sounds awesome.

I just set my phone on my passenger seat to record the sound. My.mobile network has been ***** the past week, not sure what they are doing. It would take ages to upload anything else.

lol my point is, there IS video, it's just of your passenger seat cloth. Which means it took just as much data to upload as if it were video of, you know, the gauges.

I dunno about you but I can't shift, hold the steering wheel, hold the phone and stay on the road well at the same time. Go pro is in some moving box, can't find it. Deal with it and enjoy the melodious sounds of choo choo

Wow, just wow. I don't even remember what I searched to end up here- but for the better part of three days my downtime has been devoted to reading this thread. You all don't know me from Adam but I feel like some of you are personal friends after reading through all of this.

Amazing what a roller coaster of emotions this all has been. Get a new car and have it stolen. Start a new build with the remaining pieces only to have OCD turn it into the most complete and total rebuild I've seen in any build thread ever. Finally get it going, plan a track day and have the thing crap all over itself the day before making it onto the track. New (and better) turbo picked and installed... it is like a freaking soap opera, can't wait to see where this goes next. Can't believe that I'm 184 pages in still waiting to read results from a track day though. I've been looking forward to that for at least 175 pages now.

I have been wanting to build something but hadn't been able to decide exactly what it was going to be. Initially I wanted a rally car that I could rally and rally cross from time to time. But then I started thinking about how much fun an autocross type car (or track type car) would be on the twisty mountain roads around here. But I knew we were going to be moving this summer, and so that was not something I could count on. However turns out we're just going south of here a few hours but will still be in the mountains. So- I started investigating what I could do that would be a bit less usual so I didn't match hundreds of other cars on the streets, even if the plan is to make the thing barely street legal, simply because that seems like fun. I'd settled on a 99 or 2000 Porsche Boxster and was planning what was going to happen to it. After reading this thread and clicking on other build threads that were linked to this thread and reading those... I cannot imagine not doing a Miata now. Makes me suspect this is all really just a cleaver advertising scheme to lure unsuspecting folks like me into your grasp. But hell, if it is good job, I think it worked.

Also the number of these is inaccurate.
