I know some people, well a few have wanted to see pics of my "project car" that I've been working on for months now. We didn't get a whole lot of work done on it yesterday, but I did take several high quality pics with my girlfriend's new digital camera that her loving boyfriend bought her for her birthday ;) ;)

There's several I'll be posting... hope you enjoy them. This one is of the new turbo/ceramic header with possible location of the blow off valve ;)

Here's one of the new turbo compared to the stock T3 that came off it.

Here's one with me, the 3" downpipe off turbo, and the rest of the car. You can see some of the new suspension components in the pic... most notably the Maximum Motorsports std. rear control arms ;)

This is of the stock factory instrument cluster... the steering wheel and hornpad were SVO specific. Notice how the speedometer registers to 140 but is only numbered to 85 :D

Thanks Steve. If work keeps progressing like it has then more than likely you'll get to see the car in action at CMP in March. I've keep hesitating in sending my form in due to the fact that I'm never sure from one weekend to the next if the car will be running in time.

Not to mention... right now money situations are a bit too tight for my tastes :(

It looks like it's coming along great! I hope you have it together and have the $$$'s to make it. :D
