I think it's sweet that our xB's are getting the most attention in the "Engine, Tech & Performance" First thing most people would think to do is pile a big Audio/Video system in there ride.

I'm not turbo'd or anything but I'm not stock, but it is cool that we all are going so far with our 1.5 Liter's. Keep up the sweet work everyone!


Post your opinions here, and Hell! Why not a pic of your Engine Bay too.

The kids kill most any chance for me to make any major shows, especially out of town ones.

My valve cover could be better, It's not as shiny as I would like.

D,

the metal im using is .020 sheet metal. thats what is says on the sticker. i cut it out, soldered it like i wanted it to be, then i fiberglassed it all. the metal was just a stepping stone for the whole project and to keep form. right now its glassed and ready to bondo smooth, primer, and paint.
