Just wanted to say hi, I have a 99 Sport Edition. Started as a lurker but will be getting Boost hopefully sometime this year. My build plan is to start with a BEGi S system, Zoom3 FM, DIY intercooler, and 3" exhaust. My goal is around 180-200hp.

Don't you want to say something silly so you can get hit with all of the newbie razzing?

Good post. Welcome and good luck.

There are getting to be quite a few Texans around here.

I think you need to repost that you want 500 hp. Otherwise we wont be able to make fun of you.
