I got some Verus goodies in today. A full cap set, AOS with Auto drain kit, and the 6 port heat shield. Thanks to Eric there for getting some of these pieces in raw aluminum for my color scheme.

Got some of the aesthetic pieces thrown on today. Forgive the dustiness of the car. I haven't pulled it out of the garage since I last washed it. I'm waiting for it to go back into the shop This Thursday to resolve some issues created by another shop in my area.

I'll be putting in a new engine cover without the red accents and the blue strut braces will be powder coated black this week. There are too many different colors under the hood for my tastes.

Just as a heads up. The intake manifold will block your ability to get to the oil filter, but they have a mod on the way for that.
Holy shit - that's insane.

Questions:
- From where: Nevermind
- I assume you're unlocked ECU, right: Nevermind. Looking into MOTEC
- How much: Nevermind: $3900
- What are your goals?

If you've answered all of those somewhere else, feel free to tell me to RTFM.

I'm trying to hit 650 whp reliably and safely. I'm not sure how I'm going to handle fueling yet. I also want to keep OEM like functionality. In terms of aesthetics, I'm going for a Japanese/German muscle car. We'll see.

It's going to take a while. Next focus will be body work, exhaust system, intake system and then the transmission and drivetrain.

Wing is in. It will be customized to fit with the A91 spoiler. Some people think this wing is played out, but I love it. Jon Sibal did an amazing job on the design. There will be some things that we will try in case the "gap" issue arises with these. There's an awesome in house fabricator at Velocity Motorworks and it shouldn't be an issue to to get this thing fitted correctly.

I ordered the wing as well, but was completely blind to the fact that the a91 spoiler was drilled in. Are you going to keep the a91 spoiler on and install the wing? Is there a way to fix the holes that were drilled previously?

This intake looks better than the sales sites. The SUPRA label on it looks insane. Like I said I am interested to see what you do with the engine cover. I understand cutting it but it appears you lose two of the hold down pins. I am seriously interested in this mod!

I'm keeping the spoiler and modifying the wing and/or spoiler to make it all fit.

Got the ECS steering wheel today. It feels amazing to hold. I can't wait to start get this and everything else installed!

ECS as in ECS Tuning? I don’t see it on their site. Do you happen to have a link, by any chance?

thanks!

I saw who you ordered the intercooler manifold from. Did they powder coat it and was there options? It did not appear to be an option when ordering. Speed industries will do it for a charge.

Nice. This is the first time i've seen someone use a full alcantara option on a steering wheel for the A90.
