Photo-shoot of the EM2...Last dyno run at 380whp so far. More tuning tomorrow.

Hi fellow members. I went for a quick photo-shoot after the Lollicup Car Meet #2 at Stockton yesterday. Thanks to Phong Nguyen who took the photos!

I finally found out what has been robbing the car of power after all this time. I had a cracked Greddy Turbo Manifold. It cracked all the way in half between the 3rd and 4th runner. The car is back in the shop getting a GT35R Turbo upgrade with a custom side mount turbo manifold and downpipe. I'm shooting for around 400whp this time.

Hope you enjoy the pics.

Nice ride! Can you post pics of how you routed your power steering line (from the pump to the reservoir)?

Off topic, but can you post some pictures of your interior? Also, is that a Benen rear tow hook?

Here are some picks of the power steering lines when the swap was being done. Hope this helps.

I'm still working on the interior. I'll post some picks as soon as I'm done. I just been having a heard time finding a dashboard in black at the salvage yards. Yes it's a Benen rear tow hook.
