    You are building one hell of a hard-core daily driver. It's starts with UMI mounts, folks, and ends with this...

    UPDATE * 9/18/2012 *

    Had a track day at NJMP with a friend and Aaron Povoledo so I decided to stop by the shop.
    The rear bulkhead is now completely finished and painted.
    Both Front and Rear lexan has had the edges painted black and are installed
    They did some grip tape in the foot wells and clear protective tape by the door bars.
    Also, since the steering wheel trim was scratched, I had them remove the buttons on the left and relocate them. I can now toggle through my guages again.
    Just some odds and ends left before we go to corner-weight and dyno...

    I'm gonna need to lighten up the driver now too
    You would think adding that cage would have negated it but...The stock front seats are like 60-80lbs a piece, I got rid of that anchor of a clutch/flywheel. The TD wheels are lighter, the 2 piece rotors helped and switching to lexan helped alot. The best part is there are still some things I can do

    You're running headers only right? Nice dyno numbers for only headers. What does ST2 allow in the V?
