    Wow. Turbo Neon ftw! Mod list? You've done some serious work to get those numbers.. I have seen fast neons (2-300whp range) but your numbers are really serious! Nice job!

    Thanks for the positive replies everyone! UD218, I'm sure the RX7 project will be just as rewarding as the Nissan one. Did you ever get a Dyno sheet for that little drifter? Wow, I'm looking forward to your thread! Lots of Pics please!! I read a Mk.II resto project this morning on Vortex, you might enjoy it: Second Chance GTI Of course I expect parts will be easier for you than they were for him, as you said you're in the Land of Golfs! I'd love some euro parts, and I know others that would too but international shipping makes it a little difficult (read: painfully expensive), however if I have trouble finding anything here I will keep the offer in mind! A friend of mine got his Mk.II Project car for $100! It's in the early stages right now, so there is little else to report for his though.. I am starting to form quite an addiction to these fun little German cars. I did a good job piecing together my suspension bits, and now I am mating a 2.5" downpipe with a magnaflow exhaust. Expecting mild power gains and a much improved exhaust note. Once I have that taken care of, it's time for some gauges, and a MBC. Here's another pic, you can see Kuma's noseprints on the rear window..

    Some very sick rides here, nice detailing job Orion! That CX7 is very nice Sorrento, but i think you need a proper manual tranny to use the Turbo accordingly Here is a pic from today of my beater. Got some new rims and rubber! :nod:

    Turbo, FMIC, "Chip", improved induction system and exhaust, etc etc etc - the list of additions for a Big turbo project is indeed staggering. I am a patient guy, by doing the body work and suspension first it allows me to consider the entire package before I buy any "bolt ons" or anything that would be considered a tuning upgrade. I don't know if I can resist a 'temporary' ecu remapping before I can afford the whole turbo upgrade though! Today we put some miles on her, warm weather testing so to speak. This car is quick stock, easily hitting 180km/h (110mph) at aboout 5700rpm in (edit: 4th) (on private property!!). Not alot left before the rev limiter at that point but I'll never need more than that on a public road anyways...

    I too, have the fever. My suspension needs some attention, and a little body work is in store for me this spring. Once I am content with the rest of the car, engine mod time! I am hoping the budget has room for a big turbo setup in it...

    My new keychains.

    I regularly use old/dead ram sticks for keychains. Most of my friends sport them now! :nod:

    The upgrade debate continues

    The extra money will be be better spent on other components, I own a P5B Deluxe (among other asus conroe boards) and it's not worth the extra over the gigabyte board unless there's a specific feature that you require.

    :D:D Thanks for noticing UncleDavid! AFAIK it's all stock right now.. but there will be a new thread when I get to work on it. For now I am just getting used to the tranny - manual ftw! For the first car I buy, I am really happy with it. I can't wait for spring, I can get the tools out and start modding!

    iiyama CRT's 19"(x2) 17"(x1)

    I have an old Iiyama vision master 450, these are fantastic Die Hard monitors. Great for testing out higher resolution benchmarks/gaming that LCD's cannot reach. Good deal for someone that needs a screen!
