Almost, I just need to get a header. Then its coilover, sways, new bushings, and front bumper and side skirts time. I am also going to redo my Fluidyne single oil cooler setup to make the install a bit cleaner.

Thanks dude, the modding never stops I love the BHR pipe with the HKS. I actually absolutely hated the HKS Hi-power with my two previous midpipes, it was just unbearable. But I waited for the BHR pipe and I am glad I did, it really transformed the sound of the HKS and the car in general.

Th BHR midpipe made is way more quiet but it's still on the louder side but not loud enough for a ticket or anything. Under load it's loud but at cruise its perfect. Personally I love it.

alright awesome. I almost got the agency power midpipe a while back but heard about the nasty rasp and now i'm glad I waited for the BHR pipe to come out. I just wish my greddy se was a little bit louder and agressive and the extra power would be welcome as well. Also if you wanted to give me your rims I wouldn't object, drop dead sexy

BHR makes some great stuff. I love the rims, many do not but I do

Took these last night with a new Nikon D90 I'm buying from my brother in law. I'm still learning.

Slow 2nd gear turn




Braking hard at the end of the back straight!





Cooling off outside the track after I was done for the day.
