So I have owned my '05 OBXT 5MT for about 3 months now, and it has been great! I am not going all out with this build, as its my cheap/commuter car that lets me keep the miles off my weekend toy. However, I will be fixing small odds and ends, and making a few fun additions to it. Figured I'd start a thread to track and share progress of it. Also, since we all know how big of money pits these cars can be, I thought it would be fun to track exactly how much money I'm dumping into this thing! Mods, if this is frowned upon, please feel free to delete.

Purchased 2/3/18: $3,200
- 177,5xx miles
- Banjo bolt removed by previous owner at 120,xxx
- Catless downpipe
- 17psi Opensource tune by DBW Motorsports
- Stock injectors flow-matched by Fuel Injector Connection in Alpharetta, GA
- Southern car - Zero rust
- Runs and drives flawlessly. No mechanical issues, other than a slightly leaky valve cover gasket.
- Only other issue was some minor front end damage and a purple fender.

Now, on to some pics from the day I brought her home!









And here's a pic of the weekend toy, an '06 Saabaru!
