    Very nice beast you have there (its all legal im sure..hahaha)
    Noticed, or it looks like your otr rubs on your hood lining. I had the same problem (same otr) so bent the ac condensor in a gentle arc towards the radiator which allowed the otr to clear it and sit down more
    on top of the radiator and problem solved... Good that you kept the car with a low profile externally to avoid unwanted attention.. Def need a catch can M8 to keep ur intake clean..Cheers

    I like it,

    But unless Manley, Howards and ARP are paying you to have them stickers on, i'd be losing them.
