Took a while to find that, mixed opinions on that.

Do you have any full pictures of the car?

Those are all the pics I shot, but this car will re-appear at WCBF.

How many beers did it take to properly lecture...

I also thought I saw an odd absence of beer....

We had a couple. He bribed me with Widmer to get my help.

Knowing we had to break the rotors in afterwards, we refrained from over-imbibance.

What a scandalous thread. WillWren takes gobs of photos of my dirty car and plasters them all over the internet. I see how Paris Hilton feels now. He couldn't just wait a couple days for me to clean the car (not the engine, that has never been clean) and then post photos.

Thanks for the comments good and bad.

Yes, cleaning the engine is on my short list now. This year I've: installed headers, put on new rotors, pads, stainless brake lines, painted my calipers and doing the wheels. I've still got a pregnant wife and another 2500 pounds of concrete blocks to finish the retaining wall around my flowerbeds. I will clean the engine sometime after that.

Background on my car: It'* a 2002 that I purchased in 2003 (9k on the clock, one previous owner) in Michigan. I took a job in Oregon and had it flatbedded out here. I've got 43k on the odometer now. Still in great shape aside from the dirt.

And yes, I like good deals. It'* the only way I can afford to mod.

PCM and 3.3" pulley (with modular pulley system): $120 shipped
Nitto tires (less than 500 miles) and Fittipaldi Force rims: $500 shipped
Headers: Open box item. Paid Jet Hot to coat them. $650 total

WillWren asked if I ever pay full price for anything... I had to think about it. I did pay full price for my plug wires and window tint.

I'm not a good photographer. I need to get out and take photos with the new mods.
