Okay guys, I wanted to re-introduce myself to the community. Actually I guess this is my formal "hi", as I've been on here for awhile. Anywho, I bought this car about a year and a half ago, and it's been a blast. Of course I've dumped large sums of money into it, but hey I have no regrets with this car, and I do not plan on selling it. As a matter of fact, this was the first car that I purchased by myself. I've done a few mods so far, but nothing major. When I bought the car, I knew what I was getting into. It had mismatched wheels (sawblades and some off brand 16s) :wtflol: , hideous pintripes, and later down the road, the engine was replaced. It's not a powerhouse by any means, just an NA, but I love it. I know it's still got a ways to go, so don't be too critical :) Anywho, here ya go.















And here are some of the parts that I bought.






Finally here's me and a pic of my lovely assistant.

Looking good bro. I think it needs a nice white 3piece spoiler on it though.

Thanks. I agree, it does need something. I do plan on updating the body. As for a spoiler, I plan to get the whaletail from Shineautoproject.

I like it spoilerless. But anyway, it looks nice, very fitting rims. Keep up the good work !

Thanks. I picked them up not to long after I purchased the car. They are only 17 * 7 Enkeis, but I like the 5-spoke design.

I usually don't like the mk3's wingless, but the wheels complete it man, they're SICK.
I can't wait to get some money once I pay off my parents and get a new turbo among other things and finally get some new rims.

Thanks again guys. The body is not in the best shape, I have some hail damage on the hood, driver side fender, and the passenger side rear fender near the tail lights. But I will get everything repaired when I do the entire body makeover. I like the wheels, but I want to upgrade them to these next perhaps. What are some opinions?

very nice, maybe GTE swap in the future?
Well I made a post talking about trying to do that, but it seems like that is going to extremely difficult trying to find the parts I need. I WOULD like to, but apparently any spare wiring components for 89 Auto Turbos are non existent.

like what parts.i got a 7mgte auto ecu (gray plugs)and some other parts that would get you started.
Well the parts I need would have to be for an 89. I was told by several sources that for the swap to work, I would need to have the electronics(ECU and wiring harness) exact. I made a thread and got one decent response, but something came up with my car, and had to spend the money on my tranny. So I am sure the parts are not available anymore. Oh well, if I get another chance, I would gladly jump on the idea, as I have repaired the MAJOR necessary parts on this car.
