    Congrats on the new car and welcome. Nothing beats a B/W.

    Very nice car with some nice mods, especially replacing the anemic exhaust.
    Welcome to the party!

    What is the next progression of bolt ons for me? Should I do rollers? Anything else to gain a little power out of her NA? I'll probably get a nice lightweight flywheel and a good clutch next because my hydraulics are leaking a bit.

    Your next progression is tires. Those tires are way out of date and need replaced.

    My CCW's came in Monday. Running a 345 rear 17"x13" and a 315 or 335 if it will fit front 18"x12".

    Expect awesome burn out video on old rubbers shortly hahaha.

    Also how is the exhaust system that I have? The header primaries look small, I'm guessing 1.5". Is there any better headers with say 1.75" or 2" primaries? Does anyone know off hand the size of the Borla exhaust? Would headers with 2" primaries and a true 3" dual exhaust free up more power? Thanks guys!

    Beautiful car. Hope you'll lose that front plate.

    Pulled off the plate! Now I just need to get the holes filled and the bumper re-painted. :-(
