Definitely like what you have done with your car. Something I aspire to get done in my copious spare time... hows the TC holdin up?
Yea it takes mine anywhere form 8-10 minutes depending on how cold it is. I gotta turn on the JB4 blinkers when warm whenever I get a chance cause I have them off now and I always have to keep an eye on the oil gauge.

Thanks, hopefully gonna order a few more cosmetic mods today. As far as performance I think I might be done other than adding an exhaust although that doesn't really count. So far TC and clutch are holding up perfectly. I don't do any hard launches and rarely do moderate launches. I am the second owner and I think the car may have a aftermarket clutch although idk... It was one of the stiffest clutch's i've ever driven and it sometimes engages very harsh. I'm also surprised its not slipping considering the car has 52k miles and the power it's probably making... I'm hoping to hop on a dyno sometime soon in the next few weeknds.
