Default Here so I can De-noob myself.

Found this site not too long ago and thought I would post up a intro, but anyway I am from Tallahassee/Panama City, Fl but I currently live in Kingsport, TN. In addition, my ride is a 92 that has about 90-95% of the interior replaced with new parts, along with the top. It also has been lowered has new shocks, new plugs and wires , and has a intake and exhaust along with a few other things I am sure I left off.

And I have boost planed for the car and at this point in time I am just reading up on what route I want to go as far as turbo, tuning and what amount of WHP I am going to shoot for. Also I am not new to boost because I had a roots mp90 s/c Tiburon that I had running about 300whp that I sold about a year and a half ago.

But anyway seems that you guys have a good site here with a lot of good information.

Here are a few pics I know they suck lol.

With the exception of the gay steering wheel wrap, it is a clean, nice looking car

Welcome.

Very nice indeed...always liked silver cars.

What size wheels are those? Personally I think they'd be really nice 1" smaller whatever they are, but it's your car and they go well.

Thanks and they are 17" wheels, and most likely I will go for something that is a 15" or 16" and a lot wider down the road.

Welcome. My car came with 17s when i bought it. I scrapped them for 15x8s and definitely feel that is one of the best upgrades i made to the car in terms non power mods.
The large wheels made the ride rough, they were super heavy, and tires were much more expensive.
