Well i had done a custom turbo by Apg Performance and they couldnt do th etune given that they ''focus'' mostly on imports.. so i had tom fly in and we decided its best to take the car to north carolina and do it over there with his machines.. well that was 3yrs ago.. i havent been able to put enough cash to do it and had the car towed to my mom's house and pushed it there in the garaged since i have no parking at my house.. well it hit me pretty bad that i have to do something with the car so the saving money started again and i was excited so i brought the car out and took a lot of the dirt of since my lil sister without me knowing took the car cover off and used it as a base for an inflattable pool.. [?|] i just found out and theyr was so much grime and dirt on it man i was pissed.. but its my fault for not checking up on the car... i deserve hell i know it but take it easy on me guys its been tough.. either way i was at it for a couple hours and managed to get a lot of it clean but not to my likeness. so next weekend i will push it out and wax it to put it in a cover and hopefully next year the foci will roar again..[burnout] [headbang]

p.s the altezza's are also coming off!! along with a couple other things ive grown out of..[cheers]

so they built the turbo with no plans of tuning and the car does not run?
well initially the car was supposed to be tuned by them.. they tried for days with no luck i took it to a muscle shop and they were flat out robbing me.. so i went with tom.. he brought his laptop and tried and he managed to get a lot of things figured but there is something else wrong and he cant put his finger on it unless he hooks it up in north carolina.. he thinks one of the problems might be the placement of the o2 sensor... so the car would turn on but turbo wouldnt run right.. then out the blue after i had it towed the car wouldnt start..so instead of tweaking with it and layin down more cash i had it drained out and stored it so no the car wont start [?|]

hmm...i'm hoping you've outgrown that spoiler as well, lol. overall, not to my tastes, got some things i like though, surprisingly i think the ford decal even looks good on yours. in any case, gotta give a thumbs up just because if it was running, it'd have the turbo to back it all up. good luck getting it going again someday :(
