The Story

I bought it with a bad AWD system and a leaking headgasket so I ditched the awd rear subframe for a fwd one and put a different motor in the car with bigger green injectors, a tune from VAST and a 18t turbo. The boost controller was plumbed incorrectly so the motor saw 25 psi and blew up. Then the car sat for six months and I put another motor in the car and manual swapped the car with a m56. It used to have ksport coilovers that I got used but they were not damper adjustable to I switched to Bilstein B6 shocks and IPD lowering springs. It has a full turbo back exhaust from IPD but its a little too loud so in the future I'm gonna add another muffler that I've got laying around and a boost actuated cutout. Future plans include a respray in the original saffron color, a six speed m66 manual transmission and wideband gauge. Currently running Volvo Titan wheels that are super rare.
