Looks great and I am impressed to see a car built with reputable parts and not done "on the cheap" I hope that you get loads of fun on the street. Have you had the install dynoed yet or had the car down the strip. I am sure you will get a lot of interest from the SP, Protege drivers over here.
Congrats and welcome to our home

G'day Mate

Protege is looking great that's for sure.. I had a bit of a browse through your gallery too, did you get that evo style bonnet for nothing even though the order was canned? The "blue" kevlar certainly looks nice too.. Well done!

Regards
Adam

My friend needs electronic door popers to open the doors. He doesn't have them yet, so he has to go thru the back hatch.


My car has not been dyno'd yet, but we are expecting around 230 WHP with my current 10 PSI setup with the not so adequate for higher boost intercooler I currently have. I plan to change out my IC soon for the giant one you saw in the pictures. Then I can crank up the boost to the 15-20 PSI range.

Got questions about the Xenarc? Look here:

http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=27445

On the second page, I have info about my Xenarc install. That site is the best for carputer projects!!
