Welcome.

Since it says in your sig that you have Garrett T25 "Sr20", I'm curious: have you had your car dynoed? Do you know how much whp are you making?

Pics of your car would be nice.

Car is still in the building process, so no dyno numbers yet. Thanks for the welcome! (Only pics I have right now, I will get more later this week...)

What manifold are you using? Throw in some pics looking down on the turbo and downpipe. I want to get an idea of what kind of clearance there is with a full 3" dp.

Looks good by the way.

that would be...um...zero. My goal is to own two sets, never bolted up to my car. Then I plan to make it rain with 6Ul's off my apartment balcony.

If she's 17, it's cool down here in TX.

Did you paint your turn signals black or purchase those from somewhere?

I had a set of the 5-lug variety of course, but the 4-lug is ULTRA, MEGA rare. I know there's a slew of VW people in tears right now to see a set of those on a Japanese car.

you can do 17 if your under 21. However you can NOT post nudes of anyone under 18.

he said "near nude", which should be legal as long as you're not showing nips or beav.
