Rough plans
I still wanna lower the girl. Just not sure on how low, what company, what method. Blah Blah blah.
As I stated the interior leather thing.
The woman & I are gonna custom paint the wood grain and center console. Either blacked out with a blue Dragon, or blacked out with Digital blue camo ( she's an artist )
Obviously I wanna throw that AMR turbo in, with 750's, fuel pump upgrade, the UP.
Im afraid of over powering my tranny so I may get it rebuilt or replaced.
Moore performance in Pittsburgh and I are in talks to test fir a LGT exhaust because at the moment the do not sell one. I'm thinking i personally wanna end up with blue ceramic wrapped straight pipes with Onyx tips ( possibly single exit) But I'm undecided.

and a boat load of other things like shrouds from Subtle and hydro dipping the 2.5 GT badge, front sway, bushings, blah blah blah

I'm open to suggestions and comments as always. Now with the Pictures.

Day I Got her towed home, Bought her in Decemer 2011 from a dealer in OH, motor noise turned out to be a rod as predicted. spun the bearing 10 miles from the dealer and waited 3 hours for a tow back to Pittsburgh ( dont expect these to be in order haha)

First day on the road and I didn't even get to drive ( February 2012)

Making my girl put one of my bolts on my BPV because my hand wouldn't fit ( they match )

Quick snap of me after putting my wheels on, feeling like a whole new ride
