Been getting a bit done here and there after work and on Sundays.
Have removed all the intake side and all the LPG gear on the exhaust side.
Taking off the extractors tonight. Still got lots of things to do!
Went and asked the closest exhaust shop for a price on a full 3" exhaust from the dump pipe back and they are going to get back to me on that.
Also the new trans cooler arrived today :D

Getting there slowly...

Yeah only 18's. They are little more practical around here in the country due to the state of the roads. Been heaps of instances of people destroying rims and tyres on the massive potholes around the place

It tempted me for years and now i am finally doing it. I havent really done it on the cheap as much as could be done. Ive gone out and got a lot of really good stuff so has cost me a bit more but at least i know its gonna allow me to go further without having to upgrade again later on..

I didnt go the xr front end because I actually prefer how ive done it with the EF headlights. The xr versions not bad or anything I just liked how ive done it.

It will look really good when it's all together, I guess you do what you can afford over time. With a year left one my P's there is no point in doing anything to mine yet...even then I am considering a ba/bf turbo after a year or so.
