It'll turn out ok, still just waiting on the insurance to decide if they wanna total or not. I currently got the cash to pickup a new chassis so if I find a deal before they decide I may get a new car anyway.


The red motor would look better in a white car...

I've been running a turbo tony downpipe and 3" cat back. There are some leaks after the retard crashed into me, so I may either fix that or pick up something from enthuza. If I get something else it will probably be at least 2.75".

It's an "Apollo" K&N intake: Rc-5052ab

Seems to work well, dropped the IAT to within a degree or 2 of ambient. Now I've got to adjust the MS to idle 60* IATs.
