    Just got back from a car meet today and got caught in the rain. I washed the car and figured I would post some pics and updates. I have relocated the tachometer, put new seats in, and got the audio dialed in. I've done tons of small things that I can't remember right now...

    Did some mundane shit like put in new o2 sensor, plugs, oil. Installing a secondary fuel pump and remote nitrous bottle opener this week and putting in a new high flow in tank BBK fuel pump. Additionally I plan on putting a smaller supercharger pulley and intercooler on in a few months to try and hit 500+ RWHP without nitrous. I need more power. I feel like only 600 RWHP will make me happy. Anyway, here's some boring pics from the house since I was worried about getting rained on again.

    Yeah thanks man, I will get some more pics on a real camera and not my phone here soon, and not at my house. Maybe some with the front end too. The shift knob is a plain Jane Modern Billet that is powdercoated along with my e-brake cover to match. I'll get some more pics of the seats once it stops raining. Weather is crazy in Montana and cleaning black cars I've come to learn is never ending.

    Just out today with the lady and snapped a few basic shots. Putting in new primary BBK in tank fuel pump and Bosch external tomorrow. Ordered a remote bottle opener and bottle warmer today. Only running at 750-800 PSI with no heater. Aiming for 950 for more efficient nitrous shot.

    This bad boy should help make that 75 shot more felt!

    Once you run nitrous you realize how easily it bleeds off, and at 8 bucks a pound you don't want to waste it... So I grabbed this guy.

    Holy bright blue engine bay! Looks really good. I bet that sound system of yours is F'ing stellar.

    It's obnoxiously loud and clear if I get a wild hair up my ass. But I designed it to be played at about 65% volume for clarity and mid-bass punch.

    Honestly, I don't really like the blue, I was thinking this Winter I would take everything blue off and powder coat it to match my wheels, the copper color. Then possibly tuck some stuff away as well for a cleaner look.

    Matching the engine bay to those badass copper rims would really tie it all together. As for the audio system, I prefer quality over volume, any day.

    Right on, thanks man. Not quite as slick as your seats and such, but I pride myself on my clean/basic interior. Just need some better photo taking skills, not really doing it justice. BTW, where did you get your seats?

    Ah yes, the seats. These were a quick replacement for my last racing seats that had a bolt break in the support. Since I didn't want to drive with a busted seat and needed seat fast I bought these. http://www.ebay.com/itm/400895710860?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    They look good, they're comfortable, and I like the material. They hug me well. I am 5'11 175 pounds. Plus I hear they will collapse in a car wreck and create a black hole that opens up to a world where cars are sentient and buy human beings to ride on. They are better than the Summit seats.
