My Story:

Well I first got my car in 2000 it had 86,000 miles on it. I orginally wanted a VR-4 like everyone but my dad wouldn't let me get it so I settled for a NA. The car was bone stock and the modding began slowly. Basically every B-day and Christmas present was something for my car and every extra penny I had was going into it also. Most frustrating was installing the SC kit which kept my car down for 3 years. It was very hard going to meets and being the only one without a 3s. I'm sure most of the people didn't believe I had one hanging around so long and not having a 3s. I finally got the car running decent at the begining of this year, I have a alcohol injection kit that I should be installing this or next week to help with knock and I still have a problem ripping SC belt's but I guess if it was easy it would be no fun. Hope you guys enjoy the pics. Thanks
