Nice Mark, So much for not touching the car and leaving it stock.

What's in the pipeline?

Thanks, like I say, just making it better! Haha
I have a oil temp gauge to install, some regular maintenance, thats it for now....looking at a tune....not ready to do that just yet.
Doing a track night at LRP June 13th...looking forward to that. Heading down to VA for motorfest too.

Is it me or does that mean BOOST is in the future? (poke);)

Not right now....Id like to do the supercharger, but the tuning doesnt seem all figured out...cats burning up and some stumbling issues....but I think Fab 9, has most of this figured out, or at least thats what Im hearing.

Couple of more appearance mods went in this week...
Cravenspeed battery tie down and their improved dip stick handle, added Moroso washer and overflow tanks, got rid of that plastic crap.

So I decided to add an oil temp gauge to go along with the pressure gauge. Instead of adding another pod, I went with a dual digital one from glow shift. So Ill have pressure on the top and temp below in a single unit.
Much cleaner an install as well, newer styles like this one dont require a sender unit with a oil line attached.

The car is looking good! I have always admired your taste in mods. Are those the smoked bumper markers from FM? I'm still hoping that they will make a set for the NC. I have Lamin-X smoked vinyl installed on mine but would prefer the nice clean look of no vinyl. But vinyl is better than amber/red. haha
