Default Ex-lurker from Texas

I decided to go ahead and join, as from time to time I read a thread that I'd like to contribute to.

I bought my '99 from the dealer in Nov. of 1999, and I started modifying it soon after it was paid for (2004). Here are a few of the improvements:

Go fast parts:
BRP/Stage One Tuning hotside MP62 supercharger
60mm supercharger pulley, 120mm crank pulley
Edelbrock 70mm throttle body
Track Dog Racing air to air intercooler
BRP/Stage One Tuning hiflow intake manifold
350cc injectors
GReddy E-Manage Ultimate
Jackson Racing header
Goodwin Racing midpipe
Roadstersport III muffler

Cooling:
PWR radiator
GasHead Motorworks custom coolant re-route

Wheels and tires:
15x9 6UL
225/45-15 Toyo R888

It used to be my daily driver, but now it's just a street legal HPDE car.

Welcome neighbor
Very nice list of mods there. Even more so being that you don't have the Hyper Reroute.
Cheers!

Thanks, neighbor.

I like that Steve McQueen quote, too. My other favorite quote is:

"And now my friend, the first-a rule of Italian driving:"
[Franco rips off his rear-view mirror and throws it out of the car]
"What's-a behind me is not important."

-Raul Julia, The Gumball Rally

I'd really like to; I know Matt Groner's (Matthew's Auto Sales) team and Clint Host's (GasHead Motorworks) team are going to be there, and I'd like to show support for the local shops.
