Because I measured once.... not twice. I'll clean it up later

That was a quick reply. Yeah you need to draw a line that matches the one in bumper on the bottom and then take out a little more on the top corners so it matches the lines of the hood. Reason I asked is it's not the first time I've seen the exact same thing.

Dave, that thing is nasty. How's the V-mount working out so far?

You better get used to being pulled over. A lot.

With dog in car, I didn't bother taking logs and tuning on the way home. So no real boost yet.

Normal driving... i get almost 0 fluctuation in temperatures. The real test is on track though, hopefully thats where the setup shines.

my dog loves boost. he puts both his front paws on the pass door, and rests his head on the sideview mirror. and I gun it.

he used to stand up on the seat and put his paws on the top of the windshield, but he would fall over a lot.

My little guy is the one from the valve cover pictures, he's 12lbs and 7mths old now. All he wants to do is sit in the drivers lap... which he did the entire drive.... with me in a 5pt harness and the ultrashield .

When I start to tune it and such, I prefer to have the laptop open next to me for random checks, then datalogs and then work. Dog in car = not conducive to getting that done.

This may be a moot point but a single large exhaust in the middle makes it look like your car has an *******.

The only way I'll pass you on the highway is if you drive under the speed limit. The only place you'll see this car be pushed is on track.

10psi was fun... lots of tuning needed... but I think its overly rich enough for some full pulls to log.

Ok... old photo host is flaking... I'm putting it all on Photobucket.

Here is the album link, if I could edit old posts I'd do that... so sorry. All build pictures will go into this album.

So I got lucky at the junkyard the other day and picked up some "beauty" items.
Clean red passenger fender
Red doors! No more orange
Red finish panel ( couldn't believe it was on the car)

Also picked up another set of wheels for it. Something to use for trackwheels once I run outta rubber on the panasports. Everybodys favorite wheel!

If I get motivated tomorrow, I'll put the stuff on (minus the wheels). No more fender mirrors, as they were a fix to a bad door setup. Back to normal manual mirrors. And if i get them all on, I'll update pics some.

Since people seem to only care about pics....
Added everyone's favorite wheel (came with 205s, being all seasons I gave them to the wife, her 195s came to them so i could peddle around)
Headlight covers 90% done (final fitment needed)



A few daytime exhaust pics
