I'm not sure if I sold my stock downpipe or not. The Aussie downpipe was my first mod 7 years ago. I might sell it since my GT35R kit has a downpipe. I also might sell my brand new ATS Racing CT27 turbo.

Its true, aussies like to use force to resolve problems....bashing down doors and stuff.
- malicious damage
- break-in & enter
- intimidation
- assault
- theft
stop off for a beer on the way home :D
- drink driving

Got my ACPT carbon fiber driveshaft a few weeks ago, haven't even opened the box yet. Seems the shop is busy with asbestos removal, yet another delay. No idea if I'll have the car for the summer now. Been busy lately, had a wedding social and I'm planning a wedding at the lake and a ceremony/trip to China and Malaysia. I also picked up another car on the weekend, a 1995 Toyota Supra Twin Turbo 6-Speed Canadian Spec Model with 123,000 kms. This has been my dream car for 13 years. Looking forward to doing all the work to it myself, NO MORE SHOPS!!

I know how shops go. I once took a truck to get some transmission work done. They gave the transmission to me in pieces, and with the wrong transfer case! I didn't realize it at the time. I just paid the labor bill and towed it back to my house. Of course I was working, with a young family at the time and had no money so it was several months before I got around to it. By the time I went back to get my transfer case they said "Oh, sorry. We don't have any record of your truck ever being here." It was a place called Edwards Transmissions. I think it's a Midwest thing.

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of shops. They screw you every time. I try to do everything myself and just learn along the way. It's much more fun!

I hope you like your Supra. I've always liked those, nice engines! though personally I don't care for the interior design. But hey, that's me.

Just don't forget about us when you're making 1000HP. :wink:

Until I get back my All-Trac, I'll be working on the Supra. It has a body kit and TRD replica spoiler I have to remove. I'm going to return the car back to stock body and rims and update it with 98 headlights and taillights. I'm thinking of going single turbo as well. The only parts I need for the All-Trac are front and rear big brake kit and rear Torsen LSD. That's about it. Boths cars are so nice and low kms, I might have to search for a winter beater...

What's the alltrac in for right now? Should drive it till you get the big brake kit and torsen LSD. :) I need more 5th gens to join the winnipeg toptierimports group. Got a couple gt4 6th gens and dragged Brady "stubble" to join.

Would love to see your build in person!
