Quick Notes:

1. Battery has been moved to the back of the car
2. you will see a voltage regulator under the hood on the right - that was to trouble shoot an electric gremlin we finally tracked down - just left it in- lazy ;)
3. stock plenum, but REALLY would like to get the Cosworth style for flow - know the 2.5L inlets are larger - we shall see if that mates up
4. Tune will be critical (but i know a guy ;)
5. you will also see an aluminum braille battery box unit we had built - under the motor mount bolt - cosmetic at this point
6. Run HotBits suspension with 250 lbs springs for gravel, and 450lbs springs all around for tarmac - sways on tarmac, rear sway disco'd for gravel
7. Someone asked - i ran Advan A048 tires in a 225/50/16 config for the Tarmac Rally - however, should have run proper tarmac tires for another edge - lesson learned
