Hatch - Race the damn thing.

TL - Sell the damn thing.

CBR - I'm actually fairly happy with it as is. Just want to clean it up a little bit over the winter.

I want to get into a magazine one day but not shooting for that with the talon as of now.
I just want the car running again on my budget, the way I want it done, with the work being done by myself with help from close friends and family.
Goal is to break 500whp just to say i did and with the setup i'm going with it should be a problem. If a e85 station ever pops up locally i'll make the switch and turn up the boost.
