Damn, already have a name, photo, spec list, location, and a healthy turbo. Nothing to bitch about. You have obviously at least read a couple of the meet and greets.

Welcome to the forum! Car looks great!

He's cooler than me! Except for my intercooler, that's cooler than his. But my oil is hotter.

haha, thanks for the welcomes guys.

I would like to do a turbo upgrade at some point, i really would like to go twin scroll, but havent found a good manifold yet. Probably have a local shop near me build me one (shearer fab) since the work they have done in the past has been amazing. Probably couple that to a borg warner s2b turbo and see what happens. haha.

The status seats are amazing, very tight fit. and they just barely fit in the roadster.

Nice ride. Glad to have you on board.

+1 on pics. Have you got any side view pics?

BTW what's wrong with the hood alignment?

Badass man! I really like the stance it has. Normally I'm not a fan of eyelids but they fit well in your scheme.

Just curious, why not get wider tires? Is there any kind of performance advantage to stretched stuff, or is it strictly bling?

Could you also take a couple of regular plain pictures? I still can't tell what it looks like with all the retarded magazine cover angle-shots.

stretched tires is just for aesthetics and street use. completely useless for track/performance. Wider tires will be purchased soon for track use (probably 949 racing and hoosiers)

plain pics will be taken soon and posted :-P
