    Well, I got the car "preped" for the track today. It feels a little faster too, I pulled the rear seat and frame, spare, jack, portion of the seat belts back there, and like 3 different tire irons I had hiding back there. I can hear the exhaust better now and it sounds nice. That fuel pump is freaking loud too, is this normal? I also went wingless just to see how I like it. Looks ok, will probably throw the spoiler back on in a few days. Ill go run outside an get some pics of it.

    Didn't like the way it looked, so I threw the wing back on.
    And believe it or not, those are C-springs on the back. They're just uncut.

    I'd love a leather interior, but I actually really like my cloth. I'm not a big fan of the delete kit, so the seat goes back in after the race. + that damn fuel pump is driving me nuts. I have to play music so I dont hear it "singing" away.

    I was always told that when you could hear that loud whine from your pump "it was about to go bad" I ran mine for two years like that and it was still working when I sold it.

    Well its not that loud, but enough to be annoying. I dont hear it with music softly playing, just seems loud b/c I'm not used to hearing it. Remember, I currently have no sound proofing from the front seats back, so I hear everything 10x louder b/c its all open and magnified.

    I had to pull the trunk sound proofing and spare tire and carpet and all that crap because it was wet and It needed to be dried. Anyway I was driving around withit like that and my pump was hella loud too. Sometimes if I ran into house I could hear the pump like 20 feet away. haha

    Yea, one thing I do like is that the exhaust does sound nice now without a rear seat to tone it down.
