so do you have boost control setup on this yet? i know it creeps to 18psi at redline, but im sure if you dont have it setup that you would benefit a ton having it hit 18psi sooner

i need to find a fitting before i can install it. but im ready to go as far as the hand brake goes. i started on the bat tie down too, as for the boost control, i know i could get it to pull sooner. im gonna run like this for a bit untill im used to it, then i maythink about a a 44mm gate,boost control and a re-tune for better spool and more TQ

i have other things in the works, but family stuff has been insane latley. i have picnics and partys out the wazzoo every weekend. i wanna get some good work done next weekend. im gonna start on body work next month. no paint will be sprayed this year, but i want the body work to be finished. and im shooting for the club loose event in october. and maybe a lebenon valley one if there is one around that time. i think a d-faction event would be a little more relaxed to get a feel for the car

pg 6, looks like a 6-speed

How are you going to put on the bumpers? It's too bad that all has to be covered up

Unfortunately I don't have a fender roller....there's always a heat gun and a louisville slugger

Yeah you need to do that rear end! Why do you need a fender roller? A die grinder, heat gun, and wooden object (bat, broomstick handle, log) will do it no problem. If you are really set on using a fender roller I may know someone with the proper tool for the job.

Nice. I gotta stop by again and see this beast running.

Oh btw I almost took a job at Lee in your building. I decided to stay where I am at tho. The VP of the group started making fun of our miatas when I mentioned I knew you.
