Thanks for all of the kind words and votes as well, I have been out of town for quite some time but wanted to answer some of the questions posted in the thread:

great suggestions - the interior is pretty tame for sure, I'll probably look at more interior mods next year. The turbo spool is still noticeably louder over stock with the catted DP. It was one of my first mods and I noticed the improved sound right away

V1's are okay, in hindsight I should have gone with the V2's for the reasons you mentioned especially since I track 5-10 days a season

Thanks! I might have to raise a bit to protect the arkym lip, although I can't tell you how many threads are left it can obviously be done with the V1's - no rubbing!

Very nice!! Car is very well put together. What size PSS's are you running in the rear?
Thank you - running 265/30-19 in the rears, I love the PSS, best street tire hands down! 10/10 in the dry and 8/10 in the wet

However, the stock shifter looks out of place in that interior shot. Any plan for that????
I would love to do OEM performance SSK with alcantara to match the steering wheel, probably my next mod

no need to sell your wheel - an upholsterer (sp?) should be able to color match. My wheel originally had the blue stripe, and we just dyed the leather stripe to match!
