Thumbs up Mucho Gusto...Mucho Gusto...

Everything is very trick...What size turbo and how much boost are you running? Is that some sort of manifold for the vacuum lines on the firewall?How many trannies have you broken?Upgraded Diffs? I like the bracing on the pretty pipes...Is that 2.25" piping?Did you have to use that size because of the lack of clearance with the hood? Much Props!!! I expect nothing less from a EJ25 with a little boost and someone to drive it properly.

Thumbs up 2nd Opinion...

I really like the way you moved the parts around to make room for the pipes...Really good ideas with all the placement of all the components that make the turbo kit work...Vaccum lines, piping, wastegate. Everything looks awesome. Make sure that you put the turbo kit on the new engine with at least the same amount of engineering...What ignition is that?Something from Australia?What Springs are you running, as far as suspension? How does it handle in the first 1/8th mile? If possible, Can you place some timeslips or the info off of it from earlier till now?

Very nice job Nativo..Looks great, I should be getting my Microtech MTX8 any day now. I want to know how you like it. I am in talks with Microtech about becoming the US distributer. Everyone i talked to said that they love them. Victor said that they are really big in down there in PR especially with the rotaries.Keep up the good work...Gerry

I like the way the stock 98 bumper looks with the turn signals filled in...makes a big difference in the front of the car.

I have a dumb question though, where is the air filter?

Default GC8 in the 12s

Perhaps if I run into the owner of the car this weekend I'll ask all of these questions. Even when we both own '98 RSs his is the fast one mine only looks fast.
