Great upgrades and clean up for sure! Great numbers I would say too(without looking back at your specs). Overall clean car and it looks great. Are you planning on keeping the random green colors on the inside? Seats look great and nice to see you make your own brackets. Not a fan of headlight covers but thats from my own experience of younger days!

Congrats on the engagement as well! I know how that is! We also got my car in some wedding video's and pictures!


Just curious, but how come you tow that thing backwards? Only thing I can think of is since you have the quick fasteners, you pull the bumper off to get it on the trailer?

Thanks man! She has really come a long ways. And im really not sure for the interior yet, I've had a few ideas rolling around in my head. And for the trailer, putt8ng it on backwards keeps the weight off the tongue of the trailer and serves a MUCH better ride. I actually had to stop and move it back on the trailer on my way home because it was tongue heavy, a foot makes a huge difference.

Also any suggestions or ideas for the interior/bay would be appreciated.

Looking for +400whp in the next year

Id honestly say black, but im a subtle color kind of person... well except for the orange exterior. But Im a fan of hidden gauges and interior.

And how effing heavy is your car/trailer? Granted the one I pull my car on now is aluminum, I never had to put it on backwards. Not saying you are wrong at all,I was just curious! You know what works best for you.


With white exterior, you could polish a lot in the bay. But you really can go with nearly any color that looks good with white as long as its not super aggressive. Its all about spacing the color out and highlighting what you want seen with an accent color. and using a dark or neutral color to disguise some stuff.

for example, big orange valve cover for me, black fuel rail, fuel rail is semi hidden. Coolant tank and intake mani are gunmetal with flake, draws some attention but still hides the fuel rail.

Thanks man! The hump was originally to provide room for the turbo.

BuiltnBoosted- ive thought about black, thought about white...time will tell. And I like the idea of having everything in the bay a flat black. With some subtle color here and there....its god awful right now.

Im excited to see e85 numbers!

You wont end up breaking is as long as you're careful and its tuned well. Only issue I had in a few thousand miles (21psi on LN2) was a warm start. It WONT start when warm after sitting without a little throttle. Cold start and drivability were like stock, except the car smells like whiskey .

Definitely recommend running a catch can though if you aren't (I didn't look through the whole build) cause a lot of moisture ends up in the crankcase from the e85.

im excited to see them as well, however my injectors will be cut short shortly after 400whp. I plan on upgrading to 1000cc injectors and a 460 pump next year. Then it should be good for over 500

Nothing wrong with that! There are too many people out there who claim to be very knowledgeable and really aren't.

Get it retuned on e85 already would ya? lol
