I was working extremely slow for my usual self since i usually work abit faster, but it took me about 3 months. I am very pleased with it. Yeah I'll put up pics of the whole car tomorrow. it will make everyone think positive on this Garage Vary kit

the only problem I have with the OBX is the metal overlap where the center 2 runners meet the main loop. I also have one and the matching dp

yeah it was alittle off where it appeared they wanted it to meet up. it looks pretty when heated and cooled tho unlike dull looking cast iron. its lighter too but ofcourse not as durable. . I like this better tho

Just out of curiosity if you go to all the trouble of running a after market engine managment system why do you keep the stock AFM ?, also do you guys run surge tanks with your turbo set ups ??, And by the way Sam Amporful very nice ride nice color too

well i just got this running like 2 1/2 weeks ago. and that was just to make sure that the turbo would run fine with the engine. I'll delete it later down the road. What some people dont realize is that you have to make sure its gonna run right before you move on to taking stuff out. Soon i will get a link and remove it. And its actually no "all the trouble" in running an aftermarket EMS. I wired mine in in about 2 hrs. with drink breaks, and tuning it only took 20min.

Thanks for the compliment. Hustler thinks it looks gay for some reason

I think that's hustler's stock response to everything.

I think it looks f-ing awesome.

I like it. But then again I drive a miata, and am used to being called gay.

People who dont own a miata seem to like it even more. It somewhat gives them a different perspective on the car
