Absolutely fabulous.



Although... Dark AN fittings would look a lot cleaner.

Small/big update. I'm about to pick up the car from fab once I get back from a current trip, and then it should be time to wire and start it up. I also received my EMS4 from Andrew a few weeks ago; I'm almost there! Hopefully it'll be on the dyno and off to paint within a month!

It's a bummer, but the headlights are permanently open. It was the best way to route the piping.

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but the design of that cage was not well thought out. Take a look at any sanctioning body rules for guidance in the future, even if you are looking to be innovative.

Huge torque numbers for a non-VVT head. Holy crap. I assume the head isn't stock?

Just some small stuff done to the head, not much really; running the Volvo springs, 1mm over valves and some mild head work done by Millennium.
