So badass! Like I said in the other thread, awesome intake box to use use the ITB's. Same thing I was thinking about just never able to do in, even in my dreams lol. Also you know you get 10hp just from the color of the car alone lol
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left

Bowing down to some major awesomeness.

Did it take you the full 7 years to build all of that?

I have seen it once before, but it's still definitely a great looking ride. And I bet tons of fun to drive.
