Awesame build. I really like your nice interior and the black exterior color. Are they oem lexus floor mats? With Lexus logo on them? I'm really looking for a set like that in tan color. I can only find darker colors. The steering wheel looks nice too.

And the supercharger, thats just pure evil What kind of exhaust are you looking for? Will look forward to hear when you get it on the dyno and see the results.

Must be fun to drive? :-)

But i'm sorry to say that i really dont like your eyeline trim

ordered my PLX gauges today (boost and wideband O2). they have a nice set-up with daisy-chaining the sensor modules which i think will mount in the glove box or some place under the dash (maybe the passenger side kick panel)

www.plxdevices.com

ill post pics of the install and custom mount. i can hook up the boost now, but have to wait until i get my exhaust done to mount the wideband in the Y-pipe

custom mount is going to be in the center vents. AFR on the left and Boost on the right.

removed center vent and disassembled.



started the template for the gauge backing plates. i bought a piece of the wood trim (from the shifter area) that i am going to use as the backing plates.

i took out a 40 lb battery from the passenger side front and put in a 21 lb battery on the drivers side rear. i needed room under the hood for the methanol tank/pump, so a bit of weight will go back in that corner. so, the stance is ok. once i have everything done i'll either go bagged or adjust the coils.
