    Background:
    Started in dsm in 1999 when I met brent rau back when I lived in minnesota. He worked at a shop called "speedwerks" at the time and helped build my first dsm a 1996 gs-t. Was making 363fwhp. From there I built a 1992 tsi as well, and then swapped all my gs-t parts to a 1995 gsx which was then upgraded and made 456awhp.
    I sold that car to buy an engagement ring for my wife. And pay for our wedding in 2007.
    My brother is a road racing instructor owner of http://proformancecoaching.com
    My brother and I always talked about me building an eclipse for road racing. So that's how this car came to be.

    Finished up my Mishimoto 25 Row universal oil cooler kit install.

    Combined with my forward facing oil filter housing and moroso oil pan. Other then gabbing up 2 brackets and changing the 2 "straight" 10an fittings for 2 "90 degree" fittings. It was an easy install and fits great.
