I created this for several reasons:
  1. Signatures cause the threads to become too large to read text. You do allot of scrolling just to get through.
  2. As a non supporting member the signature block is limiting in the number of characters and markup code even though I tried to keep mine to a few lines with commas, there wasn't enough space to list all of the mods that you may want to consider for your cool ride.
  3. I Hope that others will follow suit.
  4. I can always come back to this thread and update it when I add or change the look of my ride.
Reply to this post and then copy the format, create your own and add it to here. For your signature, link to your post by copying the shortcut on the # of the post, you can see it next to the (permalink), right click on the number and click copy shortcut. Then paste it into your Signature.

Rules:
  1. Please do not comment on this thread except to add your own list.
  2. Do not post photos here.
  3. Create your posting for each mod in the appropriate area and then make URL references to them in your mod list here.

Welcome to MSG_McKee's Mod Page:


2007 Aggressive GXP (Manual) loaded minus On* and Smoker's Pkg (Ordered 4/29/2006 .... Born 11/10/2006 and picked up on 11/22/2006)

I named her Karma and I thought it was appropriate for the looooong road I went through to get the car.

Brief Background Story: I originally ordered one of the "Lost Sols" while in Iraq (July 2005) and after ENCS lost their allotment of 40 I got in the front of the Sky line. I lost that car when I returned from Iraq to find that the dealer wanted $2K extra. I did a 180 and got on the list for this car (#1 in Montgomery, AL) and ALMOST bought the car Mike currently owns after getting tired of waiting ... must be KARMA!

BTW, I inserted hyperlinks throughout this page, so you can access the threads dealing with my mods and "issues."

The day my car arrived.

My original review of my car.

Fujita CAI
Magnaflow 3" Catback Exhaust
Dejon 18ga steel Right Side Intercooler Pipe - Red

"T" Bolts all around ... a MUST have (trust me!)

Waste Gate Mod

Awaiting Install:

Other Mods (Stuff ):
