hey everyone.

i decided to make a project thread for my 9000. a little history first. the car has 150K miles. I towed it home from Brooklyn New York to my home in Maryland on a U-haul trailer because it had no tags. It has since went to carlisle and since then sat on jack stands on my driveway while i work on making it into my dream car.

Anyway, I think it would be cool to have everything im doing to the car in

one place for myself to look back on(and anyone else who cares) anyway. i have lots of pics below. feel free to comment. just please dont flame me if u see something u dont like.

just know i love this car (its my baby lolz) and plan to continue to dump all my money into it. haha

here's pics of what Ive done so far.

PICTURES!



as most of you guys know, im building my own coilovers. still working on these. put them on hold because i bought new wheels/tires. haha. if u scroll down thou youll see that it was totally worth it. gonna finish these up within the next few weeks.



i hate rusty/old/nasty looking parts. so im slowly taking off every part and either polishing it or painting it this pretty blue. above pic is of the radiator fan.



almost done installing my FMIC. just have to t-clamp the HOT side. looks pretty sweet i think.



just painted this support beam gloss black. why? cause im anal and i need everything to looks brand new. haha



the misc piping for the HOT side. would have done it this morning but its raining. :(



pic of the cold side IC piping.



K&N open air intake. sounds badass.:D



polished the DIC. im happy with how it looks. just gotta do the valve cover now. lol i already know thats gonna suckkk



my favorite part of the car. zeh TURBO! haha and the blue vac hoses. ooo pretty.



just a pic of the whole car as it sits...for now. muwahaha



just another angle of the car.



interior shot. 5 spddd



aluminum pedals. i like um. there not ricey. just a nice look. better then that rubber crapp.



airflow spoiler chillin in the backseat. gonna get painted up when i get the whole car repainted in afew months.



pics of the 3inch turbo back. all stainless. NO CAT! lol exhaust sounds awesomee i <3 it.



another pic of the exhaust.

annd tahts where we leave off for now. thanks for reading/viewing the pics. hope some of you guys like my car.

You sure you will even need spacers with wheels of that offset?? I am running ET 37 + ~10mm spacers with 7.5" wide wheels. the wheels arent 'hella' flush, but are definitely better looking then the stock offset

my brand new falken 512s:smile:





this came today too. yay. now i can hook up my boost gauge.

oh, i took out the clock, made the hole bigger and mounted the gauge there but the housing doesnt really sit tight in the dash. what did u guys do to keep it mounted to the dash nice and tight?
