Hey guys!! Figured it was about time to make a build thread after almost two years of ownership.

My name is Jason. I'm a recent college graduate and currently a tech at a local shop. I bought my S2k kind of out of impulse. One day I decided to sell my three projects and invest in something nice.

The day I brought her home..











By the time I got home from picking her up and the excitement of the new car I ended up staying up all night just tinkering and snapping pictures.
