What made you choose this car?
Wanted a turbo car. This one was lady owned, bone stock, only 75K on the clock, and exactly what I wanted to spend.

What are you goals for the car?

What’s your favorite thing about your car?
It is aggressive enough to pull bikes on the highway, yet subtle enough to daily drive.

When people see your ride, what do you want them to say?
"That car is slow."

How long have you owned this car?
Exactly 5 years.

Is there anything unique about the history of this car?
It was bone stock when I bought it and I knew nothing about online forums.

Who helped you build this car?
Me, myself, and Casey (turboinline4)!!! Nothing like changing out a water pump in the freezing cold on New Years Eve. Big thanks to him and the rest of the Campbells!! All the DSM forums I have been on in the past. They have been a great source of information and friends.

What don't you like about this car?
It's slow.

What would you change if you could?
Bigger turbo, bigger injectors, intake manifold, slicks, another car so I don't have to DD this one........It is a never ending list.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how satisfied are you with the outcome of this project?
"A 10, a 10, a fucking 10!!!" 455ft.lbs on a 16G and a 2.0L, is "gettin'er done" if you ask me.

What is your favorite place to drive this car?
Any long, smooth, desolate, straight stretch of road where I can top out 5th. One of these days, I will get out to Bonneville.

If you had to name your car, what would you name it?
The Poison Apple. Hopefully, it will be able to take out Snow White....

What was your previous project?
A 125cc shifter Kart.

What is your next project?
1966 VW Beetle. Chopped, extended, fuel injected, and boosted.

What one word best describes your car?

Top 3 times your DSM left you stranded:
1. Blowing my motor because of a pinched plug wire.
2. Blew off an intercooler pipe on the highway. After I got it back together, the battery died. I had to push start it in the shoulder
3. When I lived in NC, the oil seal on the filter housing blew out. This left a 30 ft oil line that is still there.
