mines already kinda there of course... but I am hopefully going to be purchasing power logs here soon, along with new intercooler pipes, redoing my ic setup, and making everything just look better.

It's just an l26 (higher compression) xp cam, gen V, header'd, e85 car. It's nothing a hood pop wouldn't show. I wish it was cool enough to say it was really cool :sad:

Si.

And you too Kevin! DETAILS!!!
ive got a pile of assorted parts right here next to me

some of the parts for the build are on the car currently and will be modified accordingly

maybe a engine stand mock-up soon

I still have to buy a bunch of misc, only biggie is the IC, which has been over much debate which one and route to go... pipes wont be done until after the IC is on etc etc

I've posted pics of the turbo, headers, might have forgot the cam but yea, not much to see, just boxes lol
