It's not perfect, but I'm excited about it. You'll see some posts soon asking how to fix a couple little things, I know many here are very knowledgeable when it comes to these cars.

Oh, and Mike at New Era Performance was cool enough to get rid of the SES codes for me because of the ORY and other mods. Now I just have to hope the inspection places doesn't go looking for cats. :secret2:

Only thing better in my book would be a SOM hawk, but I'm a little prejudiced. Nice car!
