Anyways MODS....

These mods will be installed in the coming days:

(Getting ready for my trip to Dallas)

- 2jz GTE swap
- Airrunner suspension
- Q45 retro
- TRD sways

Detailed list of mods on pg.2 # 27...

Pics of the items would be up, some time in the coming days. As I shipped the items to Dallas. And live in Ontario...

Plans in Dallas is to get the mods completed... Then head back home.

What tourist attractions are in Dallas ?

Actually I am driving down, 28 hrs without traffic delays.

Will be trailering the GS...

There are plenty of shops that are closer, but Jeff Tsai

is one of the best to get the swap done from. Along with the other
items.

Theres lots of good shopping and restarants here. Good clubs and bars. but as far as events, you should see if you can make it to this event in Austin, 3 hrs away. It should be a good one, and you can track your car. its the 512 project, June 26th

Theres also a couple of shows:

Wow thanks for the info. This should help kill time.

As for tracking, I am not sure if they would allow 'air suspensions' on the track.

Each air bag is rated at 2000 lbs, which means it can handle a lot of power.

My goal is around 500 rwhp for daily driving.
