Or we will try that ISmeet @ 'Hooters'

Well my friend, that is 8 more PSi than I have... very cool . Sounds like a nice setup. I would like to have a similar install with a Camp2 or something like it plugged into a monitor.
Been looking at the XS-Power Kit @

XSPower - Club NA-T Forums

Looks like an affordable and solid starter kit.

You can help me build it if all you want in return is Taco Bell ! You should have asked for Cash Money$
I had Forgot about that Hooters ISmeet Idea . . . That or a trip to the Nurenburg Ring .. .

I'm not asking for money, wrenching ist still fun to me!

But maybe I need an APO to cut down shipping costs for some parts e.g. eBay braces, BBall sneakers, floorstanding speakers, conrods, . . .

Whatever you want man. Just keep that under the radar.

I will take about a month off from work when I return so the Month of January will be the prime time to do your shopping and tuning.

eBay braces are good but ya might want to double check and make sure they are aluminum and not heavy steal . . . also.. you might have different specs for your Strut bar..? You most likely know more about that than I do… The Zeitronix website has some tricky stuff. I especially like the idea of the ALL in One Full Color Touch Screen Display… Bad @SS

The shop youo've found sounds good, but I'm sceptic about their "Toyota-knowledge". Most of German "Tuning & Styling" shops is for show and shine or fpr European mostly German cars.

There are only a few serious places to go if you're driving a non German car and want some serious power upgrades. Since I accidently found a 2JZ upgrade and mapping shop in Koblenz - thats a 95km ride for you - I would suggest to get theire for power upgrades!

For a new paintjob you'll find a good place everywhere - cuz thats a common upgrade for VW Golf guys :-)

Sounds like a good start. I'm a fan of the Evo 2. I'm using headers with mine... it's loud but I like it. Performance moding in Germany can be a little difficult because of vehicle inspections and finding the right mechanic. Let me know if your lookin for anything man. Once the weather gets a little better we should get an IS Meet together.
