Aside from a new body design, the engine is now direct injected and features a completely different turbo configuration with a twin scroll unit sitting right underneath the front of the engine with very short header runners leading to the turbine housing.

Part 3 of Project Blue Boxer is comprised of a handful of very functional parts with a dash of style. A mixture of more power, better handling, and preventative modifications were all thrown at the car and we can honestly say the car is starting to set itself apart from the rest...finally.Read More
