Also, that exhaust setup is going to look and sound MEAN.

Random thought; is yours still registered for road use? This will be the most fun errand runner ever.
I need to figure out a way to get some cold air in there, although its a track car so it'll probably be getting plenty of cold air at 100mph+ just with the openings.

It is actual registered and insured for the street but hasn't been on the street in a long time. It attracts way to much attention for me. Next year itll be 25 years old and registerable as classic in VA so that allow me to bypass the state inspection which it of course would not pass.

I made some progress on the trunk yesterday, I'm really excited about how this is turning out. The factory humps in the trunk really line up perfectly with the turbos which was super lucky. I can't wait to see it all together with the exhaust.

OK one more photo because I'm just so pumped about how this is turning out. And yes it'll be wrapped like the rest of the car
