325whp for the first year (I will either keep it there or up it depending how it feels)

On tech approved no, there will be no door bars, fire system, fuel cell, or like you said a fuel seperation fire wall. If I like the way everything is going with the car I might enter it in some competitive hill climb events down the road or because of the rarity I might keep it as as a weekend driver/track day car.

Thanks for updating. I remember reading this when I first joined and then I caught up to the end and I was like, "NOOOO!"
Seriously, awesome build.

I apologize for the slow progress, this car has gone on the back-burner as we have been busy prepping for the upcoming year of this series http://www.usf1000.com/

I will also post a link up to my page so anyone who is interested can follow my progress throughout the season as well as watch some in car videos. :)[/QUOTE]

Well, that looks like a fun time! Good luck on your season.

Things are starting to move again, I have the remaining missing parts of my suspension in the mail. I also have a time table of where I would like to be. I am still aiming for Focus Rising but it looks more and more bleak that I will actually make it. I will be finishing up lots of odds and ends so hopefully I have at least one update a week for the next couple of months.

April:
-Rest of suspension install
-Tires on wheels and mounted
-Last of electrical finalized and mounted (there will still be some odds and ends I'm sure but I would like to get anything missing in the dash and engine bay finished)
May:
-Gauges
-Brake and fuel Lines installed
June:
-last of engine components installed including custom intake manifold

Like I said I would like this to be completed by June but I can easily see this being pushed into July but at least it will be running this summer.

Few pics:

RS collection grill that I had powdercoated (I think it looks much better this way)



I had to order door bezels from Germany to fit the door cards fro right hand drive, well they showed up more grey charcoal than black so I dyed them to match and I think they turned out pretty good!

If you don't mind me asking, what did you use to dye the bezels?

It was called showroom new black dye, I believe I picked it up on ebay but it seems like a really solid product.
