Everything about the swap turned out awesome...she runs great. I'll get more pics soon but I was leaving my parents' garage today and saw her in the sun for the first time so I figured I'd share. She needs a bath very bad, she's been down for about 8 months. This week: exhaust, next week: suspension and alarm, maybe wheels, week after or so: clocking of turbo, FMIC piping, sanding and primer.

Not too much but I know a guy locally that can hook me up. I kinda twisted his arm but got it for a about $140. Thanks for the props!

Got the car back from getting the exhaust system in. Because I live in Oregon and have to go through DEQ to get tags. I had him put in a resonator and high-flow cat right next to each other. After I pass DEQ (knock knock) I'll have him drop that mid-section out and replace it with straight 3-inch piping. The muffler is a Magnaflow 5"x8" oval race series...3" pipe inlet and core, 4" tip. Sounds nice but isn't loud enough...doesn't sound brutish because of the resonator.

This pic is just a closer look at the front-mount. http://img2.freeimagehosting.net/uploads/th.68f54c5bfd.jpg (http://img2.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?68f54c5bfd.jpg)
You can see the issues I'm going to have to sort out as far as the hood/headlamp lineup is concerned. For some reason, when I manually adjust the headlamp up to correct position, it droops back down after I operate the headlamps elecronically with the motors.
Last pic is simply of my gauge setup http://img2.freeimagehosting.net/uploads/th.8b65430fe6.jpg (http://img2.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?8b65430fe6.jpg)

Hahah, probably not. Like I said, I had to twist his arm for it...could practically hear him groan over the internet. However, if we could get a group buy going, he/I might be interested in trying depending on how much those parts cost him wholesale. Interesting...I might have to look into it :wiggle:

yeah...I've noticed that the pics I've posted on this thread and others of my car disappear after like two weeks. I think that freeimaghosting.net just recycles their web-space. Anybody better websites for posting images/videos? I'll have a lot of them coming...
