Finances didn't really allow for upgrading the turbo or intake manifold. Just needed to get the turbo back to operational. Thanks though, eventually I'll get to the other things. :)

Awesome work dude. Driving the car stock is better than not driving it but getting a bigger turbo. I dig the undertray, I wonder how it will do at high speeds. I want to build a splitter very similar to that that extends out the front like 3". Need to figure out how to mount it to the structure though rather just the bumper, I'm afraid the bumper can't handle the downforce created.

Even if it could, it probably wouldn't transfer much of it to the car.

Plenty of spots under the chassis to connect to. You just need the splitter connectors that have the swivel on the base and you can use the lower rad mount, and even extend from the RC bumper brace.

I have seen plenty of poly bumpers with these connected to them as well, and have proven to hold up in race conditions.

The RC brace is where I was thinking of dropping a few pieces of all thread stock down for mounting points. I am also kicking around the idea of just making it a cosmetic thing. More of a lip plus under shield.Take Landon's design and add a front wind diffuser from a CTS-V and sandwich it between bumper and shield. I think it would work well and give that "lower" appearance. Here's an image of the diffuser I'm talking about.#15. It's soft enough to contour to the shape of our bumpers and is about an inch and a half tall.

Well, as sad as this is to write.. The alltrac is gone. :( Traded it last night for a 1995 m3. Seemed like the best thing to do. I already miss the car like crazy, especially this morning in the snow. :doh: but I really like the m3 as well. So, for now, I don't have a alltrac, but if you'll all still accept me I'll still be around on here. Definitely see a alltrac coming back into my life at some point down the road, don't worry. Anyway, thats that and I will post up some pics of the m3 later.

You will be back full of regret. They always are. ;)

It is sad. :( But Josh is right, I already know I'll be back. Probably find another one and pick it up as straight project instead of daily.

This is what came along to replace the trac. Been pretty happy with it so far.
