Default hey everyone

hey, i dont know if this is the right forum for introductions, but here it is.

my name is aj, and i just put the greddy kit on my 91 with the help of spike. actually, it was more like me helping him work on my car, because i still dont know much about turbos. i'm trying to learn though, so thats what counts, right?

anyways, my main aim is to get around 200hp. which means i'll have to upgrade the kit a fair amount. ie. downpipe, injectors, megasquirt pnp, intercooler, all that good ****. so it should be a fun adventure.

heres some pics for everyone to enjoy.
(yes i know it looks like a carnival with all the different colored couplers)

car looks nice, always been a fan of silver and the GV lip as well. Gotta ask though, why are there creases around the fender flares? Did you hammer it out or add a little bit to open it up a little?

Those are the new slim flares someone on cr.net is selling. They are a style addon, they dont add any extension to the stock fenders. I wish they did though, they are pretty tasteful.

AJ I'm still ******* sore from Saturday.

BTW you should really consider wrapping the heater hoses and the throttle cable.(sorry I forgot to mention it,hope it's not too late).

they are flares from GR Craft. Rev9 motorsports ( http://www.pulsion.ca/rev9 ) is distributing them.
if you have rolled fenders, it undoes what the rolling did so all you have to do is shave them down a little bit on the inside of the fender arch to get your wheels to clear again.

no damage done so far, i'll see if i can get more heat wrap just for safety's sake.

Apex suck... I started with them. Even adding spacers under the collers on the konis in the rear to help with sag, they just dropped the car too much. 75% of the time was spent on the bumpstops....

I would suggest that you consider swapping them out when you have the coinage.....

Dave,
