    Awesome car man, interior is really nice. And if you post the IMG codes from photobucket then the images will be right in your thread, no need for clicking :thumbsup:

    Went to the local exhaust shop today to get a quote on welding up my cats when I put my exhaust on. Almost fainted when he said 4hrs at 90/hr lol I mean **** straight pipe between extractor and cat x2 ain't gonna take me 4 hours to do so I wonder why it would take a exhaust shop that long! Haha

    the last couple of days i've been playing with tuner pro 5 rt in the calais! finally figured out why my quarter times are ****! the slip between 1-2 at WOT is a good second and between 2-3 is 1.8-2secs! once i can get a tune to get the shift times down i should be sweet! should easily be able to get them under a second each!
