    I saw a 2nd gen teg with a full wooden spoiler and it was cracked in half so it kinda hung off the car... need to start carrying a cam with me theres some really nasty cars in this city now. Don't know if you guys have seen the Tempo(maybe taurus) with the house siding body kit hehe someone needs put that thing out of its misery

    haha ya, I'm not sure if its GOOD for cars but some of us are putting pretty good numbers reliably. See, the way I'm doing manifolds...etc... there is no difference between them and say revhard or fmax. There exactly the same. Same flanges, same materials, even from the same manufactuer. Here's an example, I have lots more pics at home too to compair:



    SFP



    H22



    Dropshop



    ME



    Full-Race



    ME



    D16 with a/c





    And I really have a bunch more, and more examples.

    Dirty_SOHC's manifold was a copy of this:

    and his looks just as good, just not polished!

    and some downpipes:





    again, I have alot more of my pics at home. But you can't really slam these "homemade turbo kits" because there not really homemade. All new parts, new turbo's (well, some), pipes, flanges...etc...

    The funny thing is, legendboy is spending a 1/10 of what everyone else spends and his ride looks just as good and is just as fast.

    I'm sure other people have seen the old rx-7 with the big wooden spoiler and wood sideskirts. The car is blue and the crap is painted yellow. Funny shit. haha I could actualy make thoes but aluminum spoilers people have. We have the same aluminum extrusions we use for damper blades hahaha

    what about that clown with the red lude and the rain gutter side skirts? haha just j/k!

    Legend boy, I don't know if Nguyen already asked you but, we need manifolds made for the SR20DET s, we want to be able to mount it with the turbo coming up from the manifold instead of down, we can give you one to copy from, how much for 5?

    What the hell is wrong with home made turbo kits, if im not mistaken Legendboy ran a mid 13 second run with his home made turbo kit, another guy from speedtech with the white civic runs low 13's home made. I see nothing wrong with them at all, instead of having a company make it for you, its personally made by someone else, same shit. The way you say "how about home made turbos?" sounds so ignorant. I could say the same " what about those home made graphics on the type R?"

    What do you think all the guys are running down in the states, all their stuff is made in shop or by themselves. Before you diss something you obviously know nothing about learn something about it first.

    That Ford Tempo has got to be the most ugly car on the road.
