She gets an upgrade boys! No more peg leg smokies.



Also got billy bob hds for all four corners, IPD front and rear sways, and have ruined enough cars to know to not cut the springs.

Just think of the possibilities, you could crawl under it to take off the air dam before the next tow home.

But on a serious note, ball and spring boost controllers are super dildos. after boost spiking to a can of marbles scenario a few times from a roll, went back to the shop, spent 320 bucks on a turbosmart e boost controller. Phuck guessing and allen grub screw tuning at chevron. Push the button, stepper motor go. Rant over. Oh and megasquirt is coming soon because the degrading harness is infuriating....

He's clearly aiming for minimum cooling and maximum hotness, of some type or other

Or he likes to spend a LOT of time stuck in traffic and take advantage of natural convection?

So I know I havnt updated too terribly much recently, been plagued with the worst thing known to man. Moving. The Ticket Magnet is still around, running strong, and shockingly has no piston slap as of yet.😎


I've done all kinds of cool stuff to this car since the last time I posted pictures, which I want to post eventually, but here's a brief synopsis. For 3 inch exhaust from the downpipe back, turbo smart electronic boost controller, and replaced a bunch of connection boots on the intercooler and charge pipes with silicone ones from HPI. This car is featured on my Instagram page also go follow me!

Keep those rare CALI plates on. I had them on 740 years ago. They didn't make them for very long (A few years max before they went to the boring ass ones) and you hardly see them any more.

That's an epic print file. Once I get my 3D printer I'm on that ish.😎 Lord knows I spent most of my extra funds and all of my spousal favors getting these wheels....😂
