dam bad luck eh? no i dont got any pics of the outside of the caer yet, camra is flat icon4.gif and i am too lazy to do anything bout it. first of all i would suggest cheap bolt on mods like a k&n pod filter with cold air intake. ( i am still working on that) a nice big intercooler hanging off the front, (still working on that too icon4.gif ) and a aftermarket exhaust from the turbo back. also a boost controller and BOV helps... oh i would also do something with the suspension and breaks cos they dont handle the best if you know what i mean.
