Ben didn't post with the hood up b/c there a HUGE snarl of wiring that is a full race harness that I'm doing with John Reed, it looks a mess right now. The Motec PDM's will handle the power distribution, I've removed the factory PCM and the factory fuse box
Your car was nasty before, what are you trying to do with it? Particular type of race?
Long story short is that Sebastian and i began talking about our cars during a discussion about sequential transmissions. Seb is very knowledgeable about all aspects of FI, so when he researched turbos and was able to get me the first set of the badass tial's that are going into the car, I traded him a spare tilton quad carbon clutch for the set.
I already had the car apart to strip some further weigh out (the wiring project and the xrp lines). I got ambitious and decided i'd build headers as well, even bought a welder. Also had made the decision to go ETB's, which was going to require some additional fab work. As I got started i got embroiled in a nasty divorce, the car sat for 6 months.
Enter today; the new turbos required new hot/cold side piping. the TB's required new piping from IC to the intake manifold. John Reed had introduced me to Dana awhile back. Since it had been about 10 months and I hadn't even turned the welder on I knew I'd never get the fab work done, so I dropped the car of to VW. VW will do the fab on all the new plumbing, etc. I am still using the original IC, but working with marston to get a different core, redo that as well.
As to particular race, none. Still want to chase that mile number, didn't think the 76's would get me there.
