Sounds like you need a turbo or two. No matter what you are doing, that should be enough hahah

I finally got all of my O2 sensors today, and all of them have sensors! Woot! I just hope they are the right ones lol. Also, I got an email today, MSDS sent my headers to get ceramic coated. With any luck, I will have my headers by my vacation time the week of Christmas...fingers crossed!

So yesterday, I got some little stuff done. Painted the inside of my headlights. Painted my wheels (until I get powder caoted RX-8 wheels lol) and started painting my emblems to match the dark grey accents. It's coming along.

Good news, I should be getting my headers Tuesday! In the mean time, I moved my battery to the trunk. I ran the 2 gauge wire from the passenger side of the trunk to the driver side the ran it with all the other wires down the door sills, by the fuze panel and out the fire wall. There was a white cap that I popped out, drilfille hole though, and installed a grommet. I then cit the access wire down, and soldered them together. I cut the ground wire off, since that cable grounds in the middle of the wire. I ground the negative cable using the ground for the taillights. I drilled four holes in the trunk, and mounted my battery box. The whole thing cost me $65. $50 for some 20' 2gauge, jumper cabes and $15 for a battery box. Pretty easy install, it took a couple of hours, most time consuming thong was soldering that much cable lol.
