I guess that is why I don't understand why someone would buy a kit like Hippo or Cwest without a turbo kit. Not a flame just an opinion. I think those kits are made for turbo cars and they simply don't look the same without one.

That is easy for someone who is boosted to say... :D

Anyway, I bought mine because I really like the way it looks and the fact it is quite rare here in the states...

But you are right, Wxman, I had planned on going FI well before the purchase was made, and this feb. that plan will be realized... 8)

Philz, honestly I respect that. I think building a car is about a vision and realizing it. When people "talk" about going f/i and get c-west or hippo, then that is kind of wierd to me. It needs the IC to look right or you will be showing off you radiator!!! I can't wait to see your car when it is done. It already looks great my friend!
