Just picked up a brand new aluminum RS hood from 7L Autosport for $500.




I also decided to weigh both hood since they were off. The stock hood was first:


The new aluminum hood came in at:



That's a 19 pound difference off the front of the car, not too shabby. It feels waaaaay lighter when you open the hood. Plus it came primed in black, it matches my car better than the STM hood I had before.

I Also just finished collecting the necessary parts I need to swap over to try to get the engine swap BAR certified in CA. I don't need the cops ruing my day if they pop the hood.

Yup, down to two colors I was happy when I saw it came in black.

Just picked up a set of 60mm Defi gauges, they match the version 8 cluster perfectly. I'm also making it so i can mount the pod to the hinges for the center dash pod so i can keep the upper storage bin.

Also went to another autox this past weekend at El Toro. I got to test out the lap timer app and mount I got for my iPhone. Not bad quality for a phone:
