Hey Mic, where've you been hiding? Yeah the info I used to compile the list were from your old threads but I wasn't sure if you did get the internals changed nor if it was a garret vs a turbonetics with garret housing. Its running well and no complaints here

booo frank. they were pretty wheels, now you've gotta get some



Alright, teaser time! Been waiting for some of these mods for quite some time now. This one is from some of the jzs147 guys in Australia (drink much buddy lol? ). THANK YOU NICK for this! Only guy on the forum who would ship to the US and help me out

Drumroll please...




Ta da!



Finally an aftermarket grille. Decided there were too many people going the VIP route, wanted something a little more aggressive but still in keeping with the look of the car. Don't really know how the hood latch is gonna work with this, but i'll figure something out... (any ideas though would be fantastic)

And these here have been sitting in my room for the last 2 months. Almost ready for em'; Large and yummy... (TWSS!)




Well thats that for now. Waiting for tires and paint and TIME to do these things. Who knows when that'll happen...

Nice build!

You beat me to that NA-T kit! I was going to put it on my DD. that is a perfect to give the 1st gen the hp's it should have had from the get go!

Can't wait to see the grill on.

nah not 20's. Went with 19s again. I just feel that 20s are a little too big and the car is low enough to pull off the 19s.

The grille isn't cracked. The paint is cracked. I knew this when I was getting it though and plan to have it repainted with the rest of the car.

Please, who needs a turbo kit after you have that immaculate example of a 1GS? Holy christ I must've viewed that thread 100 times by now. Talk about attention to detail...

But yeah, the NA-t kit gives it the pep it was missing

I can't wait to put the grille on, but I've got to be patient. I'm kinda OCD about stuff like this; I refuse to put on a part if I feel like something else has to go on first. It has to be balanced at all times or it bothers me. Wheels first, then body prep, then grille, then paint.

Ok. I caved. I wanted to see what the grille would look like, so I put it on.







Easy as pie to put on and just what I was looking for! Upgrades aggressiveness by quite a bit.

Well everyone, its been fun.

I overboosted. Threw a rod.

I'm currently debating fixing it, or parting out everything I've put into it. Leaning toward parting out. So look for the part out thread fairly soon unless someone feels like fixing the block for free...
