Felt like sharing my build progress of my car sence i bought her 2 years ago. Soon will be an autocross car with a fully built engine. Warning: apparently tap a talk is getting greedy and only uploads shitty quality pictures with out paying a fee.









How comes the fun stuff.

Thanks im also going to rip out the front sub frame and powerwash paint and replace all the bushings. Its had an oil leak for awhile previously and could use some tlc.

I already did the rear when i put in new coil overs last summer.

Me and my uncle made a custom turbo manifold, and i built a full exhaust 3inch front to back. I still need to add in my flex pipe and fully weld it but other than that its all done.

That moment you give up on building a car and deside ur going to the moon instead.



Im not sure what all im going to have set up but i do have a manual fan switch that will ground the fans to turn on and the red switch is a 3 stage off on on so what im going to do aslong as aem ems4 lets me is run with the boost controller OFF so its just gate, middle pos will ground singal for med boost and up pos will be high boost. Will work in theory but i dont have the ems to play with yet.
