Interesting, thanks for the pictures! Looks like a lot of the stuff in the performance forum, though the alcohol injection caught me off guard--I wonder how much boost he's running through that thing...I considered water/alc for my stealth but realized I didn't have the money to touch it .

I'd guess that he has the VNT set to top out at 18-20psi and is pushing 1gph(x5) of the alcohol

It would be super easy for somebody to steal that car without a steering lock.

There's no stereo because it's off the road right now.

The keyed ignition replaced the pushbutton ignition
