My story: Where to begin and how not to ramble? I bought this car in 2003, not to long after I fell asleep at the wheel of my 92 SL and hit 8 trees. I also owned a 91 Kandy Tangerine VR4 at the time, but it was a 10 foot car, and a piece of crap. I was about to go on a long distance trip when my Dad came across this 99, perfectly stock and with only 47k on it. We bartered with the dealer, and bought we drove 200 miles and I bought it that very night. It was a couple years before I became bitten with the mod bug, but I was eventually bitten pretty hard. Luckily I owned a store that could support my habit. I started out small, hood here, rims there... and of course a stereo. Well, RIPP Mods posted that they wanted to do a supercharger for our car, and I was able to get my way into the prototypers list. When my car finally went down for the charger, it had already been painted. Paint was thanks to two people hitting me, and getting insurance money from them. When the charger was put on, it instantly blew a piece of the piston, forcing me to do a rebuild. My moto is, if you're going to do something, do it right, so I spent my last dollar on that rebuild. I called up Brian and Denis over at GTPro (who are awesome guys by the way) and they set me right up. Ripp sent the engine out to get redone, and put in the new pistons from CPPistons (designed by GTPro). Once I got the car out of RIPP Mods, I made it home, and within 20 hours, I blew up the transmission when showing off. So off the tranny went to Team Rip Engineering to be rebuilt. Again, if you're going to do it, do it right. I put in a LSD, double synchro in first, and cryogenic treatment of the whole tranny to ensure that it would be bulletproof for the amount of power I wanted to put down. This teamed up with the stage 2/2.5 clutch from GTPro that was already put in. This is about as far as the car has come, with minor modifications here and there. I'm currently trying to switch over the interior to black, and hoping to get enough money together to put in a roll cage.
