    This is my first DSM, purchased from a fellow dsmtuners member. Car had been sitting awile and had front end damage from hitting a deer. Over the last year I've been slowly picking away at it, doing routine repairs and a few small upgrades. Really just trying to have fun with the car for now and keep it streetable

    Been a while since I updated this, have made a few changes over the last year. Car is track only car now so made it easier to change some things. Only made it to the track twice this year but have ran a PB of 11.57 @125mph, have had a few 129mph passes but at 11.69 and 11.86

    Have been making few more changes to the car to make room for future projects. Still have to finish up inside doors and installing plexi glass windows. Also lots of clean up and finish work but it's getting there. Hope to hit the track soon and break my pb

Really excited to get the car back out and see how it goes. I’ve had this thing stripped down to nothing and made lots of changes since last time I made a pass.

    Also got my rear window swapped for plexiglass one.

    Turbo is now a 60-1 compressor wheel with tdo6h turbine wheel. Currently in stock turbine housing but I also recently got a t3 10cm housing to try out later. I’ve machined it also for bigger wheel.
