Sure I will! I'm more than happy to see that we are getting closer to the date! Since I saw one myself I started again to feel that sept is far away! Hahahaha
Haha wish mine would come in September :p. I instead have to wait until November 10th. Hopefully school will keep my busy until then

They could have made the heat shield better looking on the 45. It looks like tin foil. Pretty cool how close and accessible the turbo is for those ballsy enough to throw in a bigger turbo.

It will fry whatever body part touches it while checking for oil at the gas station :(

The turbo on my old, old 1976 930 which had no independent lubrication other than the engine oil would glow orange after hard use at night. Insanely cool although it fried itself every 3000 miles. I had to sit and let the car idle for 5 minutes before shutting off the engine or it won't last a week.

Hmmm I'll check if this engine turns all orange at night if I drive like a mad man. Would be awesome looking if it did lol
