    Well, based on pressure and the want to help TW not live by the mantra of "Because TW"

    I give you the "Home of 2Fang Engineering"

    Current pic of the Yota Fam


    Where we learn by f$%$ing s%#& up, doing things multiple times, and learning the hard way.
    We help the KC guys when we can, as much as we can. Save the KCTC group, we do not
    play nicely with them.

    I'm sure there will a bunch of BS around here, but hey, this is TW. Occasional dumpster fire,
    a huge side of influencing, and all that is TW. I have personally met a great group of people
    through TW and it is that that keeps me driving on here. This is the only type of social
    media I do.

    So, without further ado......I give you "DevilPenguin"......

    Stockish on the 3rd day of ownership...



    As she sits currently....


    I'm sure this will evolve, and it will certainly change. Forgotten things will surface, and the shaking my head at the build list I'm about to post will definitely occur.

    Many times.

    So.....here's a few more pics to give you and idea of where we have come from....

    Stock but with better tires.....

    Then the Icons and Fuels with 285's


    Then came the Stealth 6's, I would have stayed with these had I not be
    contacted on the SR8's.....


    Yep. That was the first unicorn......
    After that kinda accelerated...... @Mrs2Fang is excellent and has only
    opposed me about one thing.

    The Dorkus.

    Guess it set in though....since now we are on to her rig. The bus.


    Or as we have named it......The DropBear.
    Fox 2.5 fronts, 2.0 rears.
    RCI aluminum skid trilogy
    RCI sliders (thanx @Gramps )
    Prinsu rack
    SCS F5's with 255/70R17 Cooper AT3s's

    And the other project. The Tealady.

    Currently has the 8v Redblock that's boosted with a 940 manifold and a
    16T turbocharger.

    We bought at least 3 of the 16v heads with the intention of converting this
    one but after everything J went through to get one in the race car.....I
    decided to forgo that and just install a new drivetrain.....

    Probably swap a F-body drivetrain in with an 8" toyota for the rear axle.
    T56 of course.......
