Thanks!! Appreciate that a lot. Its def something to look forward to my wallet never looked forward to it though . Its cool I work for a Marketing Firm as the Interactive Services Manager. I.E. Websites, online marketing, etc. Next is the fuel system to get it upto par to handle the power and a DSS 12 Bolt Hammerhead. I have to weigh how much racing I'll be doing to see if I want to invest in it or ride the stock diff till it goes with light launches at the track.

Maybe sometime down the road I'll forge the motor and go for more power. But i'll end up probably having something new to work on by then. I'm stashing away some money to get a Gallardo in a few years its always been my dream to own one.

Thanks Joe. I got them done from a great guy on the forum here Mike The Powdercoater. I paid a core charge and got an advanced exchange so I got the powdercoated ones, installed them, boxed up my old ones, and sent them back to Mike! Its 100% top notch work and if I ever needed something powdercoated for sure i'd spend the money to send it to him.
