Nice car! Normally my opinion towards S13's is "seen one seen 'em all" (and there's truckloads of them here on the Gold Coast) but that one looks great! No wonder you're happy with it.

And it's been on Fat Pizza? STOOOOGE MATE! :hehe:

So do you still have the Celi too? (Ever get that rear light for it?)

Yeh still got the celica, thats my daily.. Nah still haven't got tail light got CelicaSpares and a few other places looking out for me though :(

As i said in specs, its not very daily driveable thanks to clutch + atm the idle can get bit sloppy after quite a bit of boost which im gunna get fixed in next week or so

Well i got from Liverpool to Central Coast and still had a little less than 3/4 of a tank (filled up in liverpool). I was going speed limit most of the time, with quite a few squirts of boost, one major squirt where I absolutely hammered it, was uuum tense :D

Drove again today, DAMN when you put your foot down it and hit boost it TAKES OFF!
