Well as always plans have changed a bit. A nice hybrid turbo came up for sale at a good deal so I snagged it up. It's a stock S5 hotside with a Garret 60a/r cold side. Haven't really had a chance to measure the compressor wheel size yet, but I should be looking at hitting around 300whp now! Can't wait for spring...

Update time on this beast too. I recently left the car with Joe (classicauto) so he could work his magic on it and give it a face lift. He's giving it a good going over ,buff, polish, touch ups, and repairs where required. New window and rear hatch glass trim, along with installing a spoiler, rolling the fenders, and replacing all the body decals. The car should look like it just rolled off the showroom floor! I'm told I'll have it back next weekend. Also on another note, I've bought some other goodies for it again. Pics to follow.

I got the car back this past Sunday and finally got a chance to clean it today. I'd like to thank Joe for the fantastic job he did on the car. Enjoy the pics. Oh and there's some pics of the goodies to go on it too.

Oh yes, it is quite shiny now! I've had people already ask if it was repainted.

^ The only thing I'm not enjoying are birds targeting my hood with their $*#!bombs and being paranoid about damaging the car in any way. It's hard work owning a nice car....

I think this car could use a nice set of TII sawblades.

Update time. After driving the car all summer it started to develop some issues. First issue was a noise when downshifting and when you had the clutch depressed. Second was that the shifter started to feel really sloppy and sometimes wouldn't shift at all. I decided it was time to remove the transmission and install my ACT streetlite flywheel, ACT 6 puck clutch with HD pressure plate, and new release and pilot bearings. When I removed the shifter I found NO shifter bushings! They had been mashed into a million pieces and where just mush basically. The release bearing was making noise, and the pilot bearing fell apart once the transmission was removed. The car now works much better, but I think the clutch master cylinder is also failing. I'll replace it and the slave cylinder in the spring. For now, it's tucked away for the winter.

I picked up more goodies for this car. Got a set of KYB AGX shocks with Eibach springs and RB lowering mounts. They should help the stance and handling!
