VEHICLE STORY

Tell us the story behind your ride. What made you pick this particular one? Where did you find it? This car has a pretty interesting story, it was originally owned by @obes_sebo. He sold it to @lukelanphere with a S50 and a Turbonetics GTK550 ball bearing turbo. The head gasket and turbo ended up blowing. So that's when Luke decided to swap to a S52 and slightly smaller Garrett GT3582R dual ball bearing Turbo. I bought it from my roommate @lukelanphere in early January 2016. The car was on Megan racing coilovers, black BBS rs's, same paint job, & the S52 engine and Garrett Gt3582r turbo were already swapped. I took the car to @boden_autohaus to install the bags and air ride and ended up having them do a couple other things for me: trunk setup, interior bits, camber kit, etc. The Car was pushing 370whp on 10psi, not bad at all, but not what it was advertised at. I took it back to @castrosmotorsport & @rktunes who have been doing the engine work on this car since Sebo owned it, and had them raise the boost to 18psi and convert the fuel system to run on full e85. Now the cars pushing 560whp 553wtq. I've had lots of help with this car, and I'm grateful for all of it. But it's impossible to say you've never needed any help somewhere along the line. I'm a full time student and I've lost over 150lbs since the beginning of this build, I personally wouldn't have been able to do all this myself and have it finished in the time frame it was or perhaps even done in the correct way for that matter. Shops and professionals are around for a reason. To use them! So take advantage. It's not like they decide what parts I get and don't get, they don't decide what happens with my car, I do. It's my car. Describe the modifications you've made. Where did you start, what’s the most recent mod and what motivated it? Of all the mods you’ve made, which do you think offers the biggest bang for the buck? How did you go about selecting the specific parts for this build? Any installation tips to share? What are you planning next? What’s been the biggest challenge with this build?
