Next time your in my neck of the woods let me know we will go out and have a good time! We might be driving down in November after i get back from the Bahamas with the wife i am thinking Disneyland before all the kids grow up and move out!

Woohoo!! You made a build thread!

Congrats my friend. Your car looks absolutely amazing and it's clear you have great taste. I love everything you've done to the car so far, and I am eager to see what mods are in your future. Let me know if you ever need any help with installing stuff and I'll do the best I can. We should all have a mod day.

Yeah, the crew kinda adopted me by default. I tried to join all the local crews...and got rejected. I was a noob at the time, and got the "this seat's taken" treatment. LoL A bunch of great guys...Steve, Rick, Tom, Robert, David, and myself are regulars, but you know you're welcome anytime!

Thanks Tommy! Bro, you got my favorite turbo build modern muscle car. I started late in the game. I wasn't gonna mod anything, just leave it stock. Then every search I did brought up this site. I'd read your thread probably 100 times before I even joined. Thanks for the compliments. It's turning out great for me.

Please do! Gives me a reason to log on. Hahaha! I'm on 24/7. Tim, a tab on my back bumper broke by the side marker. Ordered the part, should be in this week. Not too noticeable, but it drives me crazy!

Yeah, gonna be $46 for the new piece. I was gonna get the PowerAid throttle body spacer too, but a guy said it's not worth it. Even though I have the AirAid intake. My car's still dirty from Borrego, so I need to wash it up real good tomorrow.

Damn Aaron, that breaking of the tab sucks ass. I hate when crap like that happens. We took off my front bumper when installing the new headlights and all the LED's and a clip on my LED sidemarker snapped off. That royally pissed me off, lol. I bought some clear windshield epoxy and used that to secure it temporarily. I can't believe that plastic piece that broke off your car is so expensive.

What's next on your mods list?

Yeah Tommy, it sticks out like a sore thumb to me. Next I'm gonna do NS stripes, but have to get MnP to get the color. Then I'm waiting on a GFX kit from WCC if they come through. It came off the Rascal Flats SS and I might get it for a great deal. Then I'm gonna do all I can to get FI. That's the plan...just have to stick to it. My wife wants some things for her car, so I gotta fit that in too. LoL
