    Please tell me you brought the video gear? I would love to hear that straight six running up to 8000rpm!

    Is that the factory air filtration setup or did they use a cold air induction box?

    Sometimes form needs to follow function :)

    Does anyone here use half doors? I've heard that they do a good job of reducing turbulence and they should help keep things out of the car.
