ah super bummed i didnt keep up with this thread. so i had the 240.mods
hlsd, alm 1 piece driveshaft, stance coilovers, xxr 527s, brand new turbo, full exhaust, new carpet. it was awesome!!!! here it is


lightpaint hahaha

and then one tragic morning on the way to work this happened.....


at that point i was trying to decide if it was better to scrap the shell or try to get it all fixed. i tossed around all summer, even picked up a shell and tore into restoring and body work on it. then ultimately decided to keep the car as it was with some minor upgrades you now see here



















threw in an rb20, this particular motor put down 240hp to the wheels on an s13 with similar weight and supporting mods. motor is all the same, wire tucked as well as some other goods that havent been put in. the pictures are all from yesterday, scott the gent at izzys custom cages just showed me a rough draft of the finished product. he said this is a very loose look and end result will look as factory for the most part.
