As everyone knows I do all my own work to keep because I really dont trust many people to work on my car. So spent about 5 hours at Vortex Motorsports ....
I still have to trim the bumper, Garrett 450hp core, I should be able to add fogs to my RSR now

Thanks to Militant-Grunt
and Thanks to JumboBlack1.8 for the Euro RS4 fuel pump
Dyno in two weeks and now Ill be able to turn up the boost until I hit 400WHP!
I switched cars with my best friend (2004 Civic Si hatch) on the way back from Vortex because I wanted to hear what my car sounds like from the outside. Everyone says its crazy loud when they are next to me. Needless to say when the turbo spools up its like an airplane is taking off next to you. Were installing new door speakers in his car so the pass window couldnt roll down so i downshifted and pulled up on the other side of him to talk with my one working window, A silly little RX8 thought i was trying to have a go with him and downshifted an honked, I quickly stopped him and told him no... that He should race my car, so I flagged my friend in my car to come line up and told him very confidently to Smoke him. It only took 2nd gear to pull 2 cars and then he shut it down. Watching my car decimate as a spectator was such a proud moment for me, and for my friend after we got back to his house he was smiles from ear to ear for quite a while.[drool]

Sweet! Can't wait to open my hood and be able to show off a nice big snail like yours [up]
One thing though, do you like the eyelids? I'm not a fan but if you do more power to you (not that you need it haha)

I went a stage up recently and I fell in love all over again too. It's a good feeling for sure!

But really, thats cool to hear, glad to here some good news [up] , lately its just blown motors left and right, and accidents [down]

how does that intercooler provide near adequate cooling for that turbo?
