Default turotufas Random Pictures

Pre-turbo. Badass for a friends camera phone.




Turning into a beater. First dent. At least the pin strip is gone!


Only spin out ever. I got pissed, track guys got pissed.





SR20 in a bin.


I got these off facebook. When I get batteries Ima take some better updated pics.

This is where the bang bang comes from. 3 inch FM downpipe with a little turndown. Rust free!

I'm getting ready for some custom mandrel bends and a muffler. Then I'm going to pop out that dent.

Hmm. If it was me I was probably trying to auto tune on the highway. I really got no other business on the freeway!

a few weeks old but I saw your car last night at gainesville raceway. Looks good. I was there with the guy that blew up his clutch in his TT Z32

Thanks. I still need a front bumper and passenger side mirror though.

I didn't get to see the z32 before the clutch went the other night, wish I did.

Did you happen to see what the Turbo Cobalt SS ran? Damn thing had slicks up front and skinnies on the back. I really wanted to see it run

I thought those wheels would get you banned here.

Car looks great, I love that turndown! Badass.

I didn't see a good run but my friend told me its capable of solid 11s. It stalled three times during the burnout on the only run I saw, something must have been off. I think its just a street car too.

I was fooled when they first came out. A guy offered me 300 for them...

Damn that's badass. Did you see any of the black GTO with slicks? He already had it on the trailer when I was leaving. I've seen it on the GTO forum from when I had mine but that's the first time I've seen it in person. 10.26s in a full weight 4k pound car isn't bad at all

Default More random pictures from today.

LUNCH!!



Car came with a cover, took it off a year later and suprise! Bumper fucked. Temporary fix with wire from an alternator and old paint. Reduce, reuse, recycle.



Shoulda got 'coilovers'


So I made that air filter out of uni foam with epoxy, a pencil holder, and some vacuum hose.







Ah Skeet Skeet! ahaha.





↓ Now I need to put the interior back together. With a radio! I miss the tunes.



This was my first attempt at megasquirt. One motherfuckin wire.
