Ever think about painting your brake booster vacuum line on the firewall flat black? I did mine and it makes the engine bay look a lot cleaner. I love your car though, that steering wheel is pretty bad ***.

Helllllz no I don't have no cat. However, this smaller muffler is signifgantly louder the the previous 5x8x14 muffler, so i may add one to quite it down a touch.

No, never thought of it, but I can see how it would look better; good idea. The wheel is pretty amazing, even if it's a cheap ebay wheel.

It's a NB gauge, however since I have an LC-1, it's outputting my WB signal correctly. Notice it reading solid at idle, I have it outputting 10:1-17:1 each LED represents about 0.33:1 - 17, 16.8, 16.4, 16, 15.7, etc.

Boost is solid at 12. I need to get my camera mount back and pull through the gears...

If you aren't running an air bag, why do you still have the air bag wiring?

Did you cut out your right headlight cover and put that vent in, or did you just buy a new cover and paint it red?
