A lot of shit has happened in the last 9 months since I last posted, most of you do not know but, I lost my house and my fathers house from flooding to Hurricane Sandy, fucking dirty bitch. Fortunately only good thing my family and I moved all our cars before the event so the Spec is fine but all our tools, garages etc is gone, all gone.

Starting a new is more difficult then most even know or even care to know, still things are an icy up hill battle.

Even though the Spec is fine the motor is on it's way out with pre-cat failure. With only 48k on the clock she's burning oil at a quarter of a quart every 300 miles, time to rebuild the car once again.
Still up in the air on what to do, QR Gen2 upgrade, Hi Comp or go crazy with turbo or VQ.

But the biggest issues is my families homes and getting my life back together.

While I knew the motor was on its way out I picked up a 06 1.8 as a station car to get around to work and whatnot, it too needs some TLC but when I get a chance. As of now I gotta get it to pass emissions.




Who else would have 2 1.8s besides me haha



Before I picked up the station car a few months back, I ran over some dead zombies in the middle of the road at 5 am on my way to work didn't end to well.
Bent the 4 point tie bar and blew out my factory exhaust at the resonator. 4 inches of clearance doesn't help, huge chopping blade at 60 mph.





Ended up picking up a new 2.25 Stromung exhaust along with, a fixed up Hotshot Header as a Holiday gift to myself after all this bullshit that happened.









Things are extremely crazy, but ill keep you guys updated.
