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.
