I have a few more pics of the development stages and another video. We also did a custom downpipe and a resonator delete on this car. It sounds loud and mean!

Click the image to open in full size.

it surprises me that no one has filled the void the Swift left for these SC's. with younger folks getting these 400/430's and the mod scene blowing up...the market seems RIPE for a reasonably priced kit.

That car is a BEAST
