Hey what's good man! Your turbo sounds f*kin dirty! Haha when I get back I definitely wanna see your Forte! I'm not racing you this time though LOL :p And I also got a new HD camera I'll bring out, I'm very interested in getting some vids of that turbo lol

Hey btw, you might already know this but I remember a while back you asked me about the Koup bumper going onto the sedan. I was on the Malaysian forums a couple days ago and I found this pic. I thought it couldn't be done, but it can.

I've been talking to a lot of the guys on the Malaysian forums and what they've been telling me is they get their body kits done at local body shops there. So I'm guessing that the Koup bumper is one that was custom made. I haven't asked so I'm just assuming that's how it was done. I wanna say that the whole rear bumper is custom made because if you look at the tail lights the quality of the lines below the bottom of the tail lights isn't that good.

I believe you have to sign up to see the forum post but here's the link.

That's sweet! Your gonna make everyone want a turbo noW, including me, you need a camera man though, so we can see trees flyin by etc. Great job though, and ballsy move saying bye bye to the warranty.
