yeah you should definitely take that off the trunk

i'm not really a fan of SS or Redline badges/embroidering/etc on something thats not the real deal but i understand the stock seats are garbage. trade for some redline Recaros

so BadMab header is finally installed...this one fits! Only problem I ran into is I can't tighten one of the nuts with a socket because the header is in the way. Still trying to figure that one out but its 99.9% on



i also found out why i've got smoke coming out of my exhaust, check out all that oil

I don't know, car still runs fine so lol. This happened the last time I went to the track. After a run the exhaust started smoking hardcore and hasn't really stopped since. I ran two times after that before calling it quits and my times stayed the same so I'm not sure whats up.

Either way its about time for a bottom end build

nah its one of the nuts on the flange to head connection, its like one of the runners angles up slightly and the head of the nut gets stuck.
