sounds crazy, but i think if you opened the fenders up kinda how they're ripped open like that, it'd look kinda cool.

Dan, I have a Sachs 740T clutch and pressure plate for dog dish flywheels. Only saw boost for about 30 miles, about 10k on it total. Does $90+ shipping sound fair to you?

YES!!! Sweet build!

If I may suggest, Cut your fenders and run bolt ons. Give that wheel space.

Oh, and If your state laws allow it, maybe run a offroad 'bumper' set up.

Already have a Spec stage 3 for the flat flywheel. Flat flywheel's been in the plan since the beginning. Thanks for the offer though.

I think it would be cool also, I definitely have been kicking a few ideas around for the fenders.

Prerunner style bumpers are in the works, the rear will have some sort of tire carrier so I don't have to keep the spare on the roof.

Wherever I can find some 8" travel truck coilovers for cheap. Probably polyperformance.com or f-o-a.com if I cant find anything decent used.

Welp, turbo happened this weekend, all is well. I'll get some pics up sometime. Only running 5psi right now, but it's way better than the n/a horribleness.

I think you may be on to something there.

In other news, torque rods are trashed already. 3/4" heims are ordered, should be the last set of torque rods this car sees.

Very cool. You took the idea I had for my 245 to the extreme, but I love it. Any clue what gas mileage you see with it in its current state? Does it drive/track decent on the highway?
