installed Tial BOV, and the new T1R shift knob. The BOV has a nice sound...I know it will make me run rich until I get it tuned with the new turbo, but I dont mind spitting flames out of this insane exhaust for a few weeks. You can barely hear the BOV over the exhaust.

The T1R titanium shift knob is super duper light and has a better feel than the ARC titanium in my opinion. The ARC titanium was heavy as crap and didn't go all the way down on the threads on the shift lever.

My friend is picking up my Power Enterprise 850cc injectors tomorrow and having some tires mounted on my new wheels. I will post pics of them on friday when I get back from Florida. I'll take pics of the playboy events in Florida for you guys and post them later so you can all be jealous.

My hood looks great finally painted to match the car...I really need to take new pics of my car. I will when i get back I guess. I will try and post some vids tonight of the car and the exhaust, should be nuts and enjoyable for all.

I'll post the vids around 2am or so.

New T1R shift knob...Way better than the ARC knob I had before imo.

so I got a little crazy this week. Borla Headers installed with crucial racing copper gaskets. OMG like serious gain in torque and HP. car is now beyond scary fast.

The low end got quieter, but the top end got scary loud. The turbo spools so much fast and there is an obvious gain on the butt dyno. I'm sort of scared to drive the car at WOT now. I cant wait to put on the SZ60 in the next week or so. 4XX HP here I come.

A few recent purchases:

Borla Headers- installed...very nice gains.

APS Turbo Inlet- to be installed, looks really nice.

thats all for now folks. I need to get my TGV's ported still...i lagged. after that...I can install the turbo, get tuned and have a nice day. :)

still debating if I should go with meth or not.

Do the TGV's when you do the APS Turbo Inlet....it will be right there, and easily accessable.

I would def go for the meth! One thing is...you gotta check on it and remmeber to refill it....there should be a low-light indicator letting you know that you need to refill the tank. I would get the Spec-C tank, since it will hold a lot more, thats one thing I am going to switch to....the 1 gallon is good, but if you floor it, you can easily run through it before you run out of gas!

damn it chris...making me spend more money now. I always wanted the spec c tank...forogt about it until now though. I'm sure i wont have a problem checking the tank, I'm checking everything else on the car on a daily basis already...plus I'll probably be so worried about it that I'll get super paranoid if I dont look.

need to order:

SMC alky kit
spec c 12L tank
