I finished rerouting wires on the passenger side and finally put a filter on the turbo.

I agree, it looks really good. Just wondering is it track only> You mentioned snow on the ground, but it doesn't look like you have a heater based on couple of hoses that look like they are missing.

I ran my car with out the muffler last night, exhaust ended right before the differential. It was OMG loud. The turbo sounded amazing through the exhaust though.

Anyways that engine bay is looking super clean.

I take it to local car meets and stuff like that, but its definitely not my daily by any means. The under hood fuse box is mounted under the dash on the passenger side.

Well I somewhat messed up my ignitor by megasquirt. But the car is running fairly good other than that. Ive been driving it a decent amount of the weekend and have been playing around with settings. I put the dual feed fuel rail in, rx7 460 injectors, shock tower bar, and gutted the hood somewhat because I was bored lol. Anyways here are the pics.

sr20 type deal. People around here sell them for 100 dollars in decent shape. There just so cheap it was hard to pass up as a starting point.

about .6 inch if I remember right. Half an inch goes along way with adjustment. Im honestly not sure how much camber I removed it may of been even more.
