    European "Ellipsoid" projector headlamps (huge difference)
    HRE 547, 18 lbs in the front, 19 in the rear (fav. part of the car)

    I.C.E. lol :

    Alpine 7871 Head
    MB Quart 325.20 Separates run by an Audiobahn A2600E
    JL Audio Stealthboxes powered by an MTX 4242

    I laugh because I am not a car stereo guy, and while the system sounds decent, it is only until the exhaust warms up and starts out-bassing the Stealthboxes.

    Very nice car man. I think you should tint your windows though.

    That blue is sweet! :cool:

    Thanks man, I appreciate it. I never hit the dyno while stock, but the stronger S52s put down 200 - 210 whp, with most averaging around 190-195. It is a generally agreed upon "rule" that pullies and an intake yield about 20 whp, with the exhaust and software doing little. I suspect my car was an average example.
