Hey all! Its been a long arduous road with this car but I have finally been able to enjoy it for the first time in 3 years!

Sorry for the missing pics... I will try to fix them up.. I also need to apologize for the following pics as they are all cell phone pics for the most part, and therefor sh!t.

I abandoned the 2.0L ABA Carbed engine as I could never get it to work that well - It lacked the "umpf" that the car deserved... 15x10 BBS Motorsports and Hankook RS3's can handle more than 120-ish HP...

Behold! 1.8T! Thanks Mom :heart:, Jessie :heart:, BFI, APEX Tuning, Kevin, Paul, Henry, PhillyJoe, Kyle, Grizzly, Dan, Thien, Nate, Pinky, Gerich, Yareka, Nothing Leaves Stock, and everyone else that had a hand in this Car!

The Heart!

An integral Part! Thanks http://nothingleavesstock.com/

This is all win.
Thank you Sir! Not for lack of trying!

Poor squares got killed :( but impressive build. How did you fix the door?
I love the rounds man, the squares were fine while they lasted! I fixed the door by replacing it.. it was just too far gone.

That 020 is doomed lol
