    I bought the car in 2005 without knowing anything about cars in general. The car taught me to work on cars, shop junk yards, and share knowledge with others online. I am now a "car guy" and own multiple vehicle projects including a pretty slick rare Imperial Jade MIca IS300 that I've turbo'd the stock GE engine on..... anyway, thank you for visiting.

    Hi Poncho. I like your W2A setup. I am planning on ditching the A2A intercooler and going W2A setup. I trying to find some pics of your setup and or a write up but only found one picture. If you don't mind me asking: What are you running as a heat exchanger?
    I'm trying to go as stealth as possible and I read that your front bumper looks basically stock.
    Thanks Poncho.

    Jorge .

      . My apologies. The thing here is that Poncho is a name in Spanish. Well it's the nice name for Alfonso. So your cars name is Alfonso. Had a friend in Mexico who's name was Alfonso but we called him Tocho. That's another nick name for it.

      Lol, I named it after one of my grandfather's favorite songs. Poncho & Lefty, give it a listen if you haven't heard it. I'm left handed, so I'm Lefty and the car is Poncho :). I think it's got a lot of analogues to racing cars if you think about it.

      Awesome! Yes, I have heard Poncho and Lefty. I believe It's by Willie Nelson. A good country song.
      I'm left handed too but I was forced to write with my right hand. So I never developed my writing skills with my natural hand and I have sh**ty handwriting with my right hand. Hahaha.
