Justineffingp's pos airflow ;)

So I've decided to compile the majority of my project into one single thread, as a result of seeing multiple others' project threads. I was a total noob when I got my car and have been spontaneously posting throughout TSL at random, now I suppose this will be a bit more direct.

So, I got the car back in 08 Looking like a gem.*



It had a bad trans and I got it for the massive sum of $0 usd. (not bad right?)

Over the course of the next few years it received several upgrades, changes, so on and so forth.

It now has

Afco springs (adjustable)
17's with hankooks
Spec Stg3 Clutch
Garret Gt28 Journal bearing turbo, with garret upgraded wastegate actuator
Exhaust
Fmic
34lb injectors
3.0 bar fpr
EPL stg 3 Apc
Full airflow kit
Tenzo ricer Racing bucket seats (lol)
And several other odds and ends I'm sure I'm forgetting.

It looks something like this when it's not in peices










It was on this day that it all went downhill. I broke a brake line, which led to the uncovering of some severe cancer, not easily detected from outside the car.

Oh yeah, and it's getting a whaletail!



Before it hits the road again this season it is getting bigger injectors, t5, a tubular header, tial mvs (38mm) ewg, polyurethane bushings all around, stainless braided brake lines, and a solid tune.

Thanks for looking and I will continue updating the progress of my car here!

Wow, nice car and great progress. I give people like you so much credit for doing the dirty work that so many other c900 owners don't even think twice about attempting. Keep up the awesome work.

I just finished a 1991 Saab 9000cd, I am on the lookout for a Saab 900 classic convertible in black, for this one I'm planning to do a full restoration over the next couple of years.

Very excited, fedex just dropped off my discharge flange for the dp, and my new Bosch o40 fuel pump. Also, Ups tracking says my injectors and ecu will be here today! Also, the Speedparts header is in the U.S., hopefully being flanged for my ewg right now
