Looks great! From the back view it looks a lot like mine! (same color, same wheel style, same exhaust, hardtop, etc.)

Just wondering if those tires and wheels would fit a NB that had been lowered about 1" (Tein Basics) with no fender rolling.

the 4 stickers that would end the debate were painted...ill try to remove and scrape off the paint tomorrow.

I like that front lip, looks good.
The mt.n sticker is a nice touch. Though, now that I think about it, we should make you print out a HUGE version of the one at the top of the page and make you install it on the rear window Your penance for making us suffer with that ghey logo. Funny, but ghey.

OMG i love boost. seeing 8.2psi on my log so far. Porting the wastegate helped with creep now i just need to grow some ***** and take it wot. Tune is much better, changed a few settings and it's almost as good as it was.


funny note: New IC is working great, barely seeing a rise in temps; only 3F on that 8psi pull to 6k, however, my CLT temps are higher
