Re: 02 em2 w/ k20, bride, takata, volk, arc, mugen = game over

man, that's super nice, especially with the arc box. i always look at pics of your car on ht and stuff.

oh, is your upper rad hose at a weird kink or is it just the picture?

i've got mine gutted from the front seats back right now but i am about sick of hearing my rear suspension on these bumpy roads where i live. haha.

That ARC box just is "it" for me. I don't know why. Thats a great engine bay though.

Are those NRG hood shocks? If so, what fitment are they from?
