    i baught it at the end of july 2008, about 3 weeks before i started college. baught it from a used car dealership that i will never go to again. car had 190K on it and he said the engine had 130K, and the trans had been completely redone about 6 months before i got it. i put the radio i had just bought in it, i had a jvc arsenal hu. speakers where all aftermarket, 6.5" alpines up front, and 6.5" power acoustic in the back. when i got around to taking the engine out over the summer to do some work to it i had noticed all kinds of s**t that either the dealer or the previous owner severely fucked up. i have a flared crankshaft end, the clutch was s**t, the intake tube is for the wrong car, and was smashed in on the end.

    the plans:
    ss 4-2-1 header
    correct short ram intake
    better system
    edelbrock turbo kit
    built d16z6
    my 17's with better tires
    oem spoiler
    2" drop
    type R front lip
    reupholstered leather seats
    carbon fiber hood, either the ss hood or the vader.
    the header will be going on until i can afford to get the build d16 and turbo kit (will probably take about 2-3 years)

    got some brembo blanks at the local napa store. by the time you figure in shipping its just as expensive to get them at napa, and if they dont have it in stock they will have it the next day. now i just have to wait till i get some other projects done and out of my grandpas shop so i can get my car in. need to change the oil, pass. side axle, fuel filter, rotors.

    you said in your first post under "the plans:" part at the bottom you said the header would be going on when you build and turbo the D, but when you turbo it, you will a need a downpipe... so you might as well throw it on there now.

    And take those "Fast and Furious" L.E.D lights outta there
