Long overdue project finished, I moved battery to trunk, moved/mounted PCM to inside the passenger front fender and rerouted engine wire harness through the fender. I also removed the wiper fluid reservoir. It took a lot of work and "MANY" beers but well worth the trouble.

^Nicely done. That looks really good. I should have done that when I was messing with my harness but I bitched out.

Thank you kindly... About half way through the project I started hitting my head asking why I was doing it but now that it is completed I can see that it was worth it.

I drove a 14 GT track pack.... back to back with my car... then quickly realized that I was utterly wasting my time on my 3v.

This is very true. That would be fun. Is it sad that i don't want to go turbo because I just installed long tubes?

You can do a turbo, it just takes some work to make the headers work. You can also do one of those rear mount stealth units.

That would be interesting, but those rear mounts just have so much piping, and the added lag would make me want to just do a traditional setup.

On another note: X pipe installed! I am now running JBA long tubes, a Pypes modified X pipe, and MBRP axle backs. I will eventually swap to flow master axle backs when ever I pick up a pair.

No lag issues at all with my mid mount turbo. It's right next to the transmission bell housing

Looks awesome. I am all about it being close to the manifold. Closer the better. What kit is that? Or is it custom?

Looks good to me! A nice square setup!

So I found out my drivers side axle is slightly bent. It's nothing serious but it just means my rear is probably gonna get built soon. I'm in the middle of buying a house so I can't do anything huge right now. That bent axle has been the source of the squeak I've had in the rear since I bought the car. I took off the brake pads and sanded of the edges so at least it stopped squeaking. The car also got new street wheels and tires today, in prep for the mm meet. No more amazing traction everywhere I go :/. My Mickeys are almost done for so I'm probably gonna get some Hoosiers to replace them. I'm also gonna be putting on some maximum motorsports caster camber plates and a new hub when my buddy gets here.

Anyway here's the new wheels. 19x10 square with 275/40/19's wrapped around them. Surprisingly my car sits almost an inch higher even though the wheels are supposedly the same diameter.

^ the car looks great. What diff do you plan on using? I went with the GT500 diff, I wish I had spent the beans on a torsen.

On another note, I drifted the heck out of it this weekend.
