Default Something Very Different

I cut 2 holes in my hood for my hater pipe and my air filter. I'm planning to set 13 second quarter miles in this thing and hopefully turn heads. Things I have left are Raceland coilovers for the front, a transmission, beefier brakes, bushing kit, ECU, engine bay harness, wiring, and intercooler. I'm going for the crazy tuner look in this car and I just wanted to know what you guys think!
Eventually the car will be white and it will have black gt wheels.

Sounds like a very cool project.

I'm very excited to see some folks actually attempting to build fast PT's. Can't wait see how this all comes together.

would look cool if you had one of these carbon fiber K&N's visible when you peer in the hole

Weight reduction is almost done, all the interior panels are removed, using two neon front seats, and there's still more to go. I'm gonna be removing the AC compressor soon, I accidentally discharged the system by unbolting it from the condenser and thankfully I didn't get hurt My car should weigh around 2800 lbs now.

are you planning to ditch the power steering as well? or keep the power steering and buy this?

I'm still thinking about removing power steering as of right now, I may just to simplify my build. The thing is, I have no idea how hard or easy it would be to remove.

just so you know a lot of what you're doing is just destroying the car and won't actually do anything to make it faster. if you want to have it explained to you feel free to disagree or have me explain some suggestions that would actually get you somewhere.
