Yeah it's not Rohaib's. I forgot this guy's user name.. he lives down here too. Are you back in Tahoe?
Haha yeah well let me know when you find out who it is! We are back in Tahoe.. It's freaking snowing so I pretty much hate my life right now :lol:

Always good to see another member starting their MODding Journal! :cool:

Remember, without "lots" of pictures, it didn't happen! :wink:


['07 FSXT MODding Journal] ['03 X MODding Journal]
Haha yeah I have other pics up here somewhere... I want to take decent ones with my real camera though instead of my cell phone! Hopefully I'll get around to taking pics of all the mods that the previous owners did to the car :biggrin:

I've got a few interior pics to be posted tomorrow or something as well!

OH it's OMG's!
Yeah! I knew you'd figure it out :woohoo:

20G FXT + Snoshado = :censored: me!


Hurry up and post pics!

And congrats...I think. :crazy::biggrin:
Haha I've been keeping her out of boost as much as I can. I think I'm a safer driver with this car overall because it's so touchy and I don't wanna get a ticket :lol:

Added pics!

Did it not come with a full size? Or are you talking about getting a 5th matching wheel & tire so you can rotate it in?
No it came with a donut thing... I'm just going to get the regular full-size like the one that came in our '03.

congrats on the purchase. i know the feeling of going from no power to big power. Went from a stage 2 fxt to a fp green'd fxt. start saving for a tranny upgrade though, it is practically unavoidable
Thank you! I'm actually a little scared of this car - it's just unbelieveably fast. The tranny has already been replaced but I do plan on swapping out for a 6 speed sometime in the near future.. As well as a Stage 2 or 3 clutch!

Yay... another journal thread for Crash Bandicoot, I mean Snoshado.

I wish I was cool enough to have multiple Forester journals... :wink:
Where did you come up with that name?! I don't get it, seeing as I never crash haha. :crazy:

Freaking Remington..

Vicali, thanks! So far, so good on the mature factor. I've been keeping it at the speed limit and not doing any crazy driving stuff :lol: So many people wanna drive it too...

Pics will come! It snowed a foot last night, fml. It was in the 60's last week! I don't get it >.<
