Yeah I've tinted the lights as dark as I could so I couldn't see the chrome haha ! Yeah jap rego sticker is cool alot of people asking what it is etc.. My falcon was excessively low haha.. But still doesn't compare to the nimble and a agileness of the 180, power wise the falcon was alot more responsive with the large motor and I had a lot more power in the falcon, but the 180 being so light it feels very similar.. So new wheels are on, lights tinted, I bought a Greddy front mount intercooler kit which I've installed and had made a massive change due to the blow off valve leaking.. I have also since bought an precision 5557 with tail 44mm gate, custom high mount steam pipe manifold with all aeroflow fittings and braided lines..

the surge tank setup u got with the hose clamps will give of a fuel smell

gets annoying over time and on really hot days it makes it worst

 

nice turbo setup by the way

the red dragon done some impressive things with that turbo

Yeah this is just the start, want braided & full flow fittings everywhere eventually :)

 

Will be good once on e85 and the boost is wound up.. just annoying having only 2 e85 outlets here in canberra and none of them are united but ohwell what can you do i guess!
