Default Shaggy's R53

Well I wasn't going to make a build thread, but Chase persuaded me to go ahead and do it.

I have had the car for about five months and absolutely love it. It is MC40 #934. I purchased it from a dealer in NJ and had it shipped down. Since then, It has been nothing but a blast and is getting better every day. Most of the mods you see were put on by the previous owner.

Performance:
15% pulley
K&N Filter on throttle body
Alta intercooler diverter
MSD ignition
Bosche 550cc injectors
Alta oil catch can
Meagan racing headers
Borla race exhaust
Detroit Tuned bpv
rear strut bar
TSW Upper Engine mount
BSH Lower Engine mount
WMW Race Gearbox mount inserts
Hotchkis 25.5mm Competition Rear sway bar
Hotchkis lower rear control arms
Bilstein Pss9 with Hypercoil springs (450/400lb)
Helix Camber plates
DBA 4000 294mm slotted rotors
R56s calipers
Ireland Engineering R56 Stainless Steel brake lines
Motul rbf600
Hawk HPS
Detroit Tuned Fan Relay
Crower NS1 camshaft
Bytetronik Tune
Alta PSRS
Cabrio Braces
Team dynamics pro race 1.2 17x9et23


Style:
Zeemax body kit
Tinted Tail lights
rear wiper delete
rear seat delete
OEM boost and voltage
Autometer Oil Temperature and Pressure gauges
Innovate Wideband gauge
big boned hula girl
shift lights
Craven speed shift well cover
Palo Uber hood scoop
Ocari bonnet vents scoops
Facelift Halogen headlights

I'll keep this list updated as things change.

Hope you guys like it,
Hayden

You should make an intro thread (if you havent already) so that everyone knows your sort of new around these parts.

Yeah i was at Track One today and we got to talking about your car

Hmmm tail lights... they didnt say anything about that! Haha
The oil leak is at the port for the oil cooler. Its so small that it hasnt affected oil level in two months. I plan on addressing it when i change my oil.

its a knock off zeemax? yes it has wide arches, the fitment isnt bad at all. Im just not a fan of the hood scoop, tail lights, and some stickers haha, but i have already told him that. Also needs wider wheels.

But he is off to a good start. Just gotts get somethings sorted.
