Default Tinkering LP570 Performante

So I was digging around under the hood of my Perf and I decided that the soft top takes up a lot of space.



I think there seemed to be a lot of dead space in the bay. It also occurred to me that with a little tweaking, I could make it a lot like an El Camino! So that's what I did...

First I had to get the engine lid off...



Then I needed room so I got rid of the whole exhaust system, took the bumper off of course...



The engine was in the way too, so I got that out...



And now it's practically like a small truck bed in there! Plenty of room!




Once I figure out how to get some of this back in I think we're going to have that El Camino look and practicality...




More to come!

Oh my! Besides having the engine out, the UGR logo pretty much gave it away.

Wow, exciting and scary at the same time!

One thing that caught my eye. Look at how HUGE the headers are! I suppose that's because of the build in cats in there. I really really hope someone develops some catless headers. I want my free flowing sound back! lol
