Re: sneak peek pics (R_Rated)

So, tell us what is going on in these pics. Besides the obvious of course.

Re: sneak peek pics (R_Rated)

Why do all the pictures and details concerning the mods for your car have to be so discreet? I see in one of the pictures a different pipe, the turbo, and the other I have no clue. Is there concern people would copy what you are doing to your car? Sorry, I just like it when someone does a little write-up on what is going on in the pictures.

Re: (R_Rated)

that makes sense.<p><br>did you have to remove your A/C condenser in order to get the stock IC out like these guys did? Any other major obstacles?
