    3/14/18: Quick update. Lifted the car from a “Stance” car to a more performance oriented setup.
    2013 GP2 #0295

    4/14/2018 Update: Making a list and checking it twice. Work on the parts list for the changes which will include:
    P3 Guages - I like the clean integrated design. http://www.p3cars.com/mini/mini-r55-59-p3-obd2-multi-gauge/
    Air intake - remove the ALTA open intake and change to a closed intake. Discussion located here: Aftermarket Intake Systems

    Still working on the exhaust and determining which carbon fiber bits I'm going to replace... more soon!
