Thought i'd start my own build thread here, it's not much for now, but slowly but surely it'll get there! As of right now this is not only my daily driver, but will soon become my show car, so don't laugh at some things you see in here!

First day of owning it! Bought from a guy in Middle River, MD. Bone stock with 65,000 miles on it.


Photoshoot a few days later with my buddy and his 2001 Audi S4 2.7L V6 TT.




Threw an XBOX 360 under the passenger's seat when it's at show's, should draw some attention?!

Maybe if you concentrated on reading instead of being an a--hole then you'd have seen at the top where it says it's a build thread and will soon be his showcar.
Way too many pricks on nasioc.

OP, clean stockish car. Keep it a clean show car and don't do any of that ricey crap like most show cars. Killer lightning shot too!

What all do you plan to do to it?

What's that I see? Its a bird, its a plane, NO its Cheap Shot coming to save the day!

It was merely a question silly boy. Was not trying to be a prick at all. But i admire your internet muscles. Anyway, I was only saying that because it looks 100% stock minus the painted wheels. Plus he started a build thread before he started the build. All im saying is the car sits as just about every other sti on nasioc and was wondering why this one was different. Either way, im curious to see the build as he adds more pics, details.

I know you probably aren't a hardcore drag-racer, but I would be concerned with that time. Unless you shift incredibly slow, something isn't right there. The 60' was decent...but that's about the only part that makes any sense.

We need pricks like this guy and my self to counter all the little baby wannabe tough guys on here who cant even handle hearing constructive criticism.... given to someone else that they dont even know.

See, this is why we need the pricks!
Stage 2 sti is TEH show car now?
Just a suggestion, try adding 5 times as many things as you listed than youll be at a good start.
I mean, I have a fully built transmission, a built and cammed engine, big turbo, wheels, coils, navi, etc and I would not even consider my car a show car.
