a tb really wone even give you a single horsepower. what it does is connect you to teh car a bit better. as it raises the sensitivity of the throttle pedal i may get some pics if i clean up my wiring mess in the trunk area. but to do taht i need to make an amp rack of sorts, and put in new rear side carpets. no money for that right now.....

not really. i should get some. and for all wondering about eh battery tray its a 1 of 2 in existence. made by omnispeed out in cali. omnifocus on fj has the only other one. he built them.

the cars current state is kind of sad. apart from being laid off at my new job with almost no money coming in. and trying to fix my running issue ive had. ive managed to do the following

blow up teh tensioner pulley on my way to work (towed home with car dolly, which resulted in my lip getting ripped off, and further damaging things on and attached to teh front bumper. (like turn signal on the drivers side, the fender liner.

tensioner pulley has been replaced with the billet one from cfm. and thank god i didnt blow the engine up. when it started overheating i shut it down immediatley.

i have a new drivers side fender liner, radiator surround plastics, wind diffuser tray under the bumper and core support thing, battery cables, new hood release cable (broke that this winter too) to go on.
further mods were an aem cai (got on trade for stock intake stuff) which i lost teh filter and stuff due to a massive snowdrift (ran it over,FML) and rigged up a decent solution for now its not pretty but it works.
found my old hurst pistol grip knob and mounted that along with a blackwood euro surround with clock 9that needs to be wired up. and now i have a popped seam in my drivers seat. i am thinking of getting teh seats re done with like a dark brown leather. and then dying my blue door cards black. and ditching the back seat totally, what do you think....
