Looks like you're on the right track with those future mods! Gonna paint/wrap up that bowtie?

Like the intake? gives the engine some bark eh?

I did notice though, the trim paint looks, wrinkled? like it was layered on a bit thick.

I agree with Stevo, might want to wet sand it down and put a couple more coats on so it's even. Otherwise looking good!

ha yeah it does have a nice bark to it :) im going to paing the bowties black eventually, but i dont mind how they look for now. as far as the paint yeah it looks eh but it was my first time ever painting anything. i am going to go back and repaint it when i have time, im also not good at sanding so im doing some learning before i tackle it again.

Nice, but please tell me you've got the supporting mods for that turbo. You'd need a clutch for sure, and that 2.5'' exhaust would likely choke the poor thing, not to mention all the other little odds and ends you'd need to keep your motor from eating itself.

Aside from that, it looks clean. Good job.
