History This car had an engine bay fire (started at coil) and I got it for $2500. It had a ton of goodies installed, most of which I'm keeping but some I'm selling on because they aren't my taste.

Car is currently a work in progress, I'm still repairing the fire damage and finishing a new engine for it.

Besides a Lindsey boost enhancer, Autothority chips, a 3 bar FPR, and a Forge recirc valve, the car was completely stock when I got it save for the interior. The fields below show my plans for the car, some of which are already ticked off as I have time.
Exterior Half-ass respray, I'll likely plastidip or do a re-respray correctly.

Has that 'turbo' decal on the passenger fender, which I think is cool...

Script door handles

Interior Full 968 interior, this is what made me sure I got a good deal. Pleated door cards, uncracked airbag dash, split rear seat, etc. All in mint condition.

I've since installed brushed aluminum sun visor clips, a brushed aluminum shifter knob insert, and a 3-pod gauge panel in place of the cubby. There are matching 14point7 gauges (Solid Gauge Series) for wideband AFR, EGT, and boost. Brushed aluminum rims sort of match the other stuff.

Performance Upgrades TBD. Shooting for 16-17 psi on pump gas, maybe 17-18 on E85, if we still even have E85 by the time this car is driving. 375whp is my eventual target once I get everything mapped in.
