I was going to postpone all the pics until I could edit #2 post; I'll just have cut & paste it when the site "fixes" itself!

I looked back into the "vaults" for the oldest pictures I had of the car; and was only able to find a grainy copy.














That's all the early stuff I could locate. Since then there's been a re-tune to my power/econ programming, an MT285 getrag swap w/ stage3 clutch kit & lightweight fidanza flywheel. Coil over setup, beefier sway bars, energy suspension poly bushings creeping their way throughout the underside, and some exterior and I.C.E. upgrades... here's some more recent pics:






Super-Secret location of work friend: he's helping with the paint work.

The first painted piece, and the 3M clear bra application



I've gotten a badge on there since the pic was snapped last week




This is now an extended, stock hold-down for a full size spare






These are the raw forms I'm using to make custom fiberglass subwoofer enclosures that utilize stock mounting points for the rear seat armrest foams

Conversion to '12 stubby antennae



still needs a little smoothing...

Spoiler installed


Before/After stock vs SVT wheels





New seats


Not Pictured
·solid shifter base bushings
·new plastic shifter pivot bushings
·arcade-style push button ignition

To be color-keyed & added over winter
·B pillar bracing
·4 point racing harnesses
·aluminum valve cover
·turbo-plumbed oil pan
·front sway bar/rear stress bar
·cold air intake tubing
·adjustable short throw shifter
·SVT front brake conversion w/ drilled and slotted rotors
·stickier tires
·full stereo upgrade


Wish List
·10,000rpm redline engine
·air jacks mounted to frame
·remote mount turbo upgrade


I know I'm missing a spelling error and the grammer-notsi in me will cringe; I'm also probably somewhat out of order chronologically with some of the pictures (again: if the site "heals" I can go back and fix it!!!!). I know I missed a few!

Cool idea for a thread. I am digging all the stuff going on with your car, esp the side view mirrors :)

So *bump*..... My Calais is going back together, just waiting on the turbo flange gasket to get here. What happened originally was my oil pressure sending unit blew clean thru and the turbo kept lifting of its seat, so I tore it down to clean up and strated resealing everything back up and using better materials. I'll post progress pics later
