Default I've got a feeling it's going to be a whole new car..

So I saw Brain's n00b announcement, and it reminded me my vBgarage was in need of an update. So I added the stuff I bought since I've been here but haven't installed yet... Holy Hell it's going to be an entirely new car!

Only 2 more months.. come ONNNNN October!!

Yah, that NooB announcement is awesome... I'm glad someone came up with it!

You've got my dream list of parts on there. I can't wait to move back to San Diego and be able to hit all he junkyards down on the border. I'll have my Torsen the first weekend I'm back!

I actually got pretty lucky to be able to buy one from here. My brother in law has been very accomodating in letting me store all of my new parts at his house. Begi has been helpful too, their communication is top-notch.

I can't wait to come back, get the DP/FMIC/clutch/rear etc. on and then start messing around with the Megasquirt. I'm thinking get it running well at 5 psi and then start turning it up.

It'll be 2.5", catless, haven't decided on the muffler yet but I want it to exit underneath since I love the look of my zoom rear fog.

Hopefully soon, yeah..

Thanks! I think you're the first one to notice that the nozzles and antenna are gone. The badges were shaved for awhile but I added the "eunos" and "roadster" badges to it.

Oh, forgot I'd written that they're gone in the description... just added the jap badges so the badging isn't shaven anymore.
