History
I am the third owner and final owner. Drove down to NJ to pick it up from member XteekayX with 88k miles in 2006. It was mostly stock and had a slipping clutch, so I got it for a steal at $14k. 5 mods later it ran a best of [email protected] on the stock turbos, and dyno'd 269hp & 290 tq @ 15psi on stock turbos. Not long after, it spun a rod bearing which prompted a forced upgrade rebuild. Many labor hours and thousands of dollars later it's a 19T'd, pretty much bullet-proof, rocket of a car. And there's plenty more to come.

Curious how you like the D2 coilovers? I am currently running Evo 8 HKS coilovers and have always been curious of the D2's. Mainly because of their color. LOL.
