Mark, I was just scanning through some posts on the site when I came across this picture, and noticed it had an uncanny resemblance to what the 944 I purchased should would have looked like at one point. When I looked through your old posts I saw that after you had sold her, she was in an accident and was indeed the car I purchased. I thought you might perk up to know that during my free time (full time student) I've been putting life back into this baby, and she is now completed, aside from a few very minor things that I will finish up soon. I will post some before and after pictures when I get a chance.

joshl1978- where was that picture taken? Looks like it's in the staging lines for the Gateway drag strip..

You live in MO?

well, my setup is still in the final stages of being finished. However I'm predicting it will make about 215-220whp and 240 ft-lbs tq. on 11psi.
Do you have any under-hood pictures of your setup?
