That is really a test mule...

front fender fit is horrible
left exhaust outlet looks like it was cut out with a hack saw.
is that bubble gum on the cam cover?
top has the wrinkles

Also, how did these "spy" photos get taken when in one shot the hood is open and the other shot the hood is closed.

just some observations...

Looks like those rumers of turbo vs supercharger have increased merit. Nothing says "Work in Progress" like BJ Weld on the valve cover. Yet the valve cover has "turbo" in the casting. Wonder what the red doo-hicky between the exhaust tips is?

Also dont forget the two air pipes coming from the front grill area. I assume one is taking the cool air from the intercooler to the turbo and the other is taking the "hot air" back to the intercooler.

Wow...More HP...does anybody know if the SOL will require suspension or braking upgrades. It's great to have more HP, but in it's current design, can the SOLstice handle the additional stresses, and be able to stop??

Most cars with a high performance option have upgraded suspension/brakes, or they at least offer an extra package for it too. So I wouldn't be suprised to see it here too.

Would it then be (economically) practical for us EOP orders to go back after delivery to have our SOLs retro-fitted, or would we be better to order another SOL when the turbo comes out??
