Default Bruh : The Thread[Matt's 945]

[UPDATE - 8/27/16 - Not much gets done on this over the years, I just kinda talk in circles and yell at people.]


The basic jist so far.

Started as this:


Currently sits like this:


Engine bay:

The MAF and "turbo" airbox cover aren't on it anymore, the MAF was bad so I just swapped over the cone filter and MAF from my green car.

Thanks to sir psycho for hooking me up with an air intake hose for a great price after I discovered mine has a huge hole in it.

Future plans include lowering springs, and the wheels which I ordered 6 weeks ago going on the car. Basically gonna keep it stock mechanically and just make it low.

Oh and eventually fix the sunroof or upgrade to a glass one. The stock slider is broken on one side.

Nice 1

I don't know if European 940 Headlights is legal in US/Canada but if they are. You should buy them I think they are nicer.

Seriously? That looks pretty bad actually. 225/60 is where it's at for 8" wide rims!

It looks pretty cool now but it would look better if they were 16's IMO.
