Got this car as a graduation present after high school. I thought I knew how to work on cars back then, but I've come a long way. It started with some basic bolt-ons, and now dozens of hours of research and hundreds of hours of wrenching later, the car is a completely different animal. I've done the best I can to make it a balanced build with good NA power, lower weight, better braking, a stiffer chassis, cooling/aero, and some aesthetic changes to make the car my own. Every mod done was paid for and done by me, and I can't decide which part I'm most proud of: my dyno number, the science behind all the aero, the amount of weight removed, and how little money I've actually spent. Its still my daily driver and doesn't see the track as often as I'd like. At this point, all mods are done (I just need to paint it white); so, she should get more track time. Eventually, it will become a track only toy with more power, less weight, more aero, better suspension, and a cage. I can't wait for that day. Few moments are more satisfying then winding out second gear to 7,200rpm only to let off for a braking zone and hear the wonderful pops and bangs of the exhaust. It's not the perfect car; it's my car.
