issues - power steering tank bracket had to be spaced out
and the throttle cable bracket had to be adjusted. otherwise,
just waiting to get a tune refresh for the newfound airflow.

bangin it in the shop -



factory set up -

got it tore down, and dam it was dirty -

getting everything fitted -

Looks good, Jason. That's a newer Svede, huh? The WCS one?

I need to post some pics of my hooptie. Got her dropped a bit, but I have these God-awful black wheels on it.

Paleface Ranch isn't far from me. Is his place on the Travis County side or the Burnet/Blanco side of the Pedernales?

Yup. With 275s in the rear.

Gonna get EddieZ to dip 'em a darker grey, or something similar. I do not like black wheels.

The 17s aren't going anywhere until I can afford C6 wheels.

Thanks for the compliment but meh, it only looks good cause the paint is blazing crazy in ur face. I really am looking for some type of gunmetal wheel, prolly the standard vmr everyone gets. Just cant decide on 18's or 19's. Have this 14" wilwood bbk sitting around needing to be installed.
Lemme know next time you are out that way. I could bring some "orange sodas" over and check it out.
