Well she runs great in stock form anyways. So I can officially say she is complete. I'll let everyone know how she runs at 12psi on my CT20B once I get my boost controller and catch can and twin power ignition installed. And since it's always an ongowing project I'm going to be painting the rims gunmetal soon. But for now- here are some pics.

Hey man, your car looks really nice! I was just wondering what kind of suspension you're running and what kind of exhaust that is? Looks good though :wiggle:

I just gotta say that your car looks really classy. I live in STL as well. I'm currently in the process of rebuilding my ST162 and ST165. The 162 is red and will have much the same appearance as your car save for the fact that it is a 4th Gen. I'm all about the class. Hear's to you! Cheers!

BTW where in STL do you frequent? I'd like to see it in person some time.

The suspension is Koni yellows and Intrax springs which I would HIGHLY recommend both. When the car launches she just goes- no shifting or lifting or anything. But it's still a reasonably comfortable ride. The exhaust is 3" turbo back. HKS Hi Power.

I haven't really set up any routines in STL yet. I've got some relatives in St.Charles area so I'm sure I'll be over there from time to time but for now it's mostly in Alton that I run around.

Thanks for all of the compliments guys. It's taken me a year of overcoming the most retarded-stupid-ghost-in-the-machine-no-one-has-ever-seen-before issues so get this baby running, so your praise means a lot.

Don't paint the wheels..............it looks too classy to change. I think you'd be taking away from the car asoppossed to adding to it's effect. IMO, that is!

I'm also in the STL area and would like to see this choice ride.

Wow, it looks like a red version of Princess.. with a big ass FMIC, and not as clean as an engine bay.

Nice car dude.
