Just a general rule with me. Clean, clean, clean and when you THINK it's clean, clean again.

2001 LE, auto, billet grille, tall shifter, polished aluminum spare, K&N filter and Hedman hedder. Why a header? Because it makes me happy!

there's quite a few threads in the "member PT projects section. have a look. unfortunately most of the threads kinda suck now due to photobucket

what are you intending to do? just rebuild it? race it?

I'm going to build it back stock, its a pretty nice car, 06 touring, I'm a firefighter and was going to build it to drive to work so i didn't have to drive my truck every day but the more I fooled with it I decided that I'm going to sell it and buy me a turbo car!. I bought a 03 GT with a bad head but after talking to one of the members here I decided to part it out and buy me a newer turbo car.
