I love your car so much Silas. I envy at how it's always super clean...even in the rain or snow!

I have a spacer kit for mine that I'm testing out for a certain company... any chance you install for other people too? I don't have a place to do it.

Put her in the body shop for a new trunk and rear bumper cover, compliments of non-insured female motorist who didn't apply brakes at a red light. :/

Put the Blizzaks on after an unfortunate bump with the curb late last night after getting out of the gym.

Star Specs do not work well on ice.

Fortunately no damage minus a 1.5in tiny rash on the rim of the wheel. Boo... )=

Pulleys are from Unorthodox Racing. Throttle body fits is nice, The guys at Boomba make a great product. I had to rotate mine to fit the alternator, but I think it'll look ok when I finish up the wiring and get a couple more bits dipped.

Thanks Mike, It's coming along nicely. I hope your paint contact is interested in doing a whole car repaint. I have the engine bay mostly shaved up, and I'm about to start cutting out some of the trunk and reworking it for the surge tank.

I should have it on a trailer and ready by say... Next year!

From 11/11/13

I changed the oil and filter today. Using Royal Purple HPS 5W30 and Wix 57712. 133,100 on the odometer. 3000 on the new motor. Surprisingly, the drained oil was still purple after 2300 miles.

I also removed the front lip underspoiler so winter won't get a grasp of it.

I'll be sending an oil sample to Blackstone Labs tomorrow for analysis and TBN. I'll post the results when I get them back.

Look, my rear strut tower bar is functional!

Also got tired of screwing and unscrewing the i-bolt, and I like the way it looks.
