    You're probably right. I was just trying to think of ways to make my car stand out.

    It already does stand out to most people who actually know what a clean car (specifically DSM) should look like. You don't need trick colored interior panels to achieve that.

    However, when I was young, I did a lot of stuff I thought was cool to make my car stand out. I definitely understand the urge.

    My advice would be to do things that can easily be reversed. That way, when you decide redoing your interior in carbor fiber wasn't such a great idea and you're sick of it, you're not stuck replacing interior parts. I'm pretty sure you can get some of the stock bezels redone in CF, so maybe look around for some of those parts. Then, you can just swap them back and forth whenever you want.

    Very Cool! I breezed through your thread and it brings back some memories for me. Your way ahead of the game and have a sweet car, I remember when I was in high school going through similar situations that you are. There has been some great advice given here and it sounds like you have an awesome dad pointing you in the right direction! Wait until you swap to AWD and do your first couple launches! Thats a cool feeling.

    Eprom ECU used to be the only way to install DSMlink/ECMlink and be able to tune, you would have it socketed so you could plug the chip in to tune. I've been out of the loop for a few years but I know they are flashing the black ECU's now if I remember correctly.

    Believe me I'm ready. I've had the whole awd rear assembly, gas tank, everything in there for some time now. We've been so busy working on other things that we actually make money on, so I'm basically driving around with a useless 300 pound weight in the back for no reason at the moment. All we have to do is swap out the transmissions, put the driveshaft in, and I think change the starter.

    Well it's been a couple weeks since this happened but I thought you all would enjoy it anyways. I don't even remember why they were doing it, but all my buddies were flying American flags for the first football game of the year. They all went home and made custom mounts a few days before. But me being who I am, I waited till a couple hours before the game to decide hey why not. I went out to my car and just looked at it. Well guys there is a lot more places to mount a flag on a truck then on a dsm. I had a couple people tell me to just get the little ones that go on the door windows but I wanted to go big or go home. So what did I do? I flew a 3x5. The same size flag as the lifted f-250s, Silverados, Tacomas, etc. I went and got two old rake handles drilled them together and drilled holes out to zip tie the flag then stuck it down my sunroof hole. I showed up to the tailgate and everyone was freaking out. On the way to and leaving the game I had countless "USA!" "Yeeyee!" "Right ons!" Etc being screamed at me. Everyone riding behind me told me I was turning heads left and right. I pulled up to sonic after the game and a bunch of people asked me why and I just said don't tell me I won't do something LOL or why not I'm American too.

    Yeah don't be fooled thinking that was on my first attempt. There was some trial and error. Anywhere from what I used was too short to if the pvc was too flimsy for my liking. I wasn't the happiest camper in that process either LOL.

    Yes sir I am. I am running a 12 inch puller on the passenger side and a 10 inch pusher on the drivers side. The pusher is of course behind the intercooler facing the condenser. They’re both mishimoto fans.

    Nice build! I painted some of my interior pieces when I was young. Thought it was cool back then, but I look back now and it makes it look cheap. Simple=clean imo
