Welcome to the site. Looks like a clean car, but you're going to need to brace yourself for some negativity. This place is all about performance and the slammed/low offset/stretched tire/neons look is going to get you a lot of attention.

You have any specific turbo plans yet? Looks like a 1.6 car?

Your suspension is broken. Fix it. The car won't look retarded when you do.
Also nice neon lights, Paul Walker. Did you overnight those from taiwan?

16 year old me was harassed by Orlando cops for at least three hours for red neons, Have fun with those blue ones. I wasn't even on the road, in a ******* pizza hut parking lot.

**** that ****, and **** that state.

How do you not break the frame on flat road? I slammed the frame once, and I said "never again" I was at least 1.5 inches higher than you

I'm not knocking your car, I'm like, legitimately curious how you drive it anywhere without getting stuck.

I daily my car, now I'm around 4.3 inch pinch weld, and I still get stuck and have to get out and push once in awhile... not to mention needing four planks of wood to get on an alignment rack.

Good stuff man. Look into a megasquirt ecu and some rx8 yellow injectors. Megasquirt is relatively inexpensive and widely used, there's tons of information online to get you started. The RX8 injectors are plug and play, cheap, better than stock, and they will flow enough for your goals.
