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?

man, do you ever smell fumes from your battery with it being in the trunk? seems since it ever got colder, there's a veeeeeery faint smell of fumes in my car with no rear interior.

yo sim, you know i likey, and I want a ride soon..ROFL

but i doubt you going to be above 220whp.....I'm guessing around 210whp.
Either way, awesome build....cant wait for the "other" things you have in store for the car.

wow your car has all the exact same parts on my to do list except your ballin' enough to actually have them all on your car now haha! only thing i noticed but could possibly be wrong about is did you major chince out on your tires? lol they look not quite performance oriented to say the least. hopefully your new k20 will destroy them fast enough anyways you will need new ones haha! just got a set of yokohama parada spec 2's and wow they never screech or let lose on the track so far and i push my car pretty hard.

Interior and engine is nice. Exterior needs to be redone, ugly imo. Gameover = oudated btw, thief lulz.
