Default MODIFIED Magazine Cover - January 2013!

I wanted to start a separate thread for this cover feature so as not to confuse my build thread. Got some extra unused photos from the shoot as well from the photographer, Matthew Jones. This guy is good!

Thanks as always to all my sponsors and everyone involved with the build: Andrewtech Automotive, Piper Motorsport, TurboXS, Falken Tires, Team EMOTION, Brainchild Customs, Boomba Racing, and Congressional Bank.

Check it out, it's on newsstands now! Support print


Modified Magazine has now made the entire article available online, so If you didn't get a chance to check it out in print yet, just follow the link and be happy

The only thing I like about that car is the super clean engine bay.... but that's just one mans opinion.
Seriously though, Congratulations on grabbing a cover and a full spread!

btw this car is just alright i mean my car is way better and stuff duh. plus this car doesnt even have a cano installed like mine does soooo where can you pack it? wtf? you really should consider the pack it mod and stop wasting your money on stupid stuff like jdm bling and air jacks or super clean shaved engine bays. s*** make the car run on sour diesel instead of gas now thats a sick f'ing mod yo, probably pickup like 800whp plus it would smell uber bomb. this is my 2 cents though i mean think about it. not everyone can be a baller like me i know everyone try's and im not trying to jack your thread or nothing but from a friend to a friend bro, pack it mod ftw. stop wasting your money on all these "cool" mods and just make the car run on sour diesel. i heard its the ish, and if you dont concider yourself un-friended on facebook AND XBOX. this is real s*** dont test me our friendship depends on this!!!!!!!!!!!

I believe he said this is how the car will ultimately sit and that he is never getting rid of this thing. Thank god because it's stunning in every form you've had it in and it would be nice to see someone not finish a car and the next day part it out or sell it.

Thanks guys! I am well aware that this won't be everyone's style, but I truly appreciate the fact that most people can understand and respect how much work goes into creating something like this.

I don't think I could ever part this car out, I'm the original owner of the car and I will likely own it for the forseeable future. I may change a few things, but probably not going to evolve much past this point. I need a bit of break from it to be honest. My goals for this coming year are to sort out some minor issues and just enjoy the car, drive it on the weekends etc.

About the airjacks, as silverwerx said, its an AP racing airjack system customized to run off of a modified nitrous bottle. Each jack weighs less than 1lb!

I can only imagine how cool it must be to stroll through a Barnes & Noble, or drug store or something and look through the magazine section and know that car on the cover is tucked away in your garage.

Must be nice. lol

thanks for the feedback. This car wasn't designed to break any HP records. And to be fair, that dyno figure was over 7 years ago and before the heads, cams, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, and many other bits.
