    Not That I Want a Build Thread

    The Money Pit


    This could go as far back as May 2014 when all good thing started to happen but I will skip most of it and get closer to the now. The name is obvious and it's not from being a beast of a build it's more from making multiples of the same mods and testing how different changes affect the car. Just for example it's had three different intakes, FMIC with five different intercoolers, three different exhaust systems (and working on the fourth), three different styles of catch cans and there are many more. Personally I like to design and build something just to try it but in the end it does get costly. Not to much to show right now that most haven't seen.

    I will start with what was done today then add in a few extra pictures of random non important stuff.

    Sorry about some of the photos, I usually don't have the camera with me so the old phone backup it is.

    Those weeks are real nice. I need to get more practice welding. I also need to get enough bravery to screw stuff into my car....

    As you wish, this was today's start on the new duals. This is the beginning of the Y pipe before it is shortened to do what is needed.
    Still using the crappy cell so it's not perfect
