Yeah maybe we should have asked "Why do you appear to have two names?" before we bring out the pitchforks... Maybe it would help if you guys would put up some avatars, get a little personality in there.

Ahem, ahem, yes like my avatar. As you can see its quite hilarious

My recommendation is to chose yours with care and remember whatever you decide. Your avatar can save a life or even prevent natural disasters like earthquakes. So keep that in mind when choosing.

Looking forward to the pics! They are MORE of an importance to us on this forum because, in this case, it is a modification being done that's "out of the box" and likely a "one of a kind". Bolt on mods are great BUT when you custom fabricate/modify something yourself, not only do you take more pride in the workmanship but sharing it with the rest of the world gives you that satisfaction of knowing you succeeded! The torches & pitchforks will soon retrieve back to the barn !!!!

well boys its done this pics are finally taken.. now please remember this is NOT the final stage, it still has to be fiberglassed, sanded prepped and painted.

the breather is also being re-routed to being placed over the engine cover as well as the engine cover being painted the same as the filter systems, so red/or salsa depending on the finishes i can acheive, with the VVT-I being chromed

but amazing. there is some lag at times, but it only lasts about 2 seconds then the car just flies, def a power upgrade it is for sure faster.
