haha thanks, she's a runner alright. I fooled around with a shelby cobra gt500 and kept pace with him till he used full throttle...but the fact that he HAD to use full throttle to get away is pretty sweet

I have a custom tuned ECU that was programmed by jim wolf. they remapped the fuel curve, pushed by the fuel cut and rev limiter, and wrote it in for a z32 MAF...along with a bunch of other stuff.

wow the s12 looks pretty good on its own. but the supercharger peeking out the hood makes the imagination go wild. really really nice! now if you can just get a nice hood to kind of cover it up....

yeah it's definitely a really pretty car, I like it a lot.

I'm going to get a custom hood fabricated. it's basically gonna look as factory and indiscreet as possible, so you can't tell what's under there until you hear the whine

lol honestly i don't see how a big bulge on the hood is going to look discreet but i am anxious to see what you will come up with. also, are those watanabes?

haha well as much as possible, we're working on the design...it shouldn't be too bad, it's not as tall as it looks at that angle.

and yessir they are, genuine rs-8's. a rare five lug, staggered set

you could do a small cowl on the hood, in my head that seems like it would match the styling of the cars body pretty well and most people wont think too much of it. probably get more people making fun of it and not taking it seriously then they wont be laughing once they see what that thing does in a race then you'll be the one laughing at them heh

I've looked into a turbo hood, they're not tall enough...or I would have, just to make it look completely factory.

as for those fenders...there's no way in hell I'll ever find any.

ehhh yeah, the spacing the hinges agitates me...just a personal peeve. I don't like it..

and yes, the GP edition cars are retardedly rare. they only made like some ridiculously small number of them, euro only, to celebrate the s12 winning a rally...I forget a lot of the details
