Given the amount of work already lavished on this car, we asked Bob if he was finished the modifications. He told us, "I don't think it's ever done." Despite all the fun he's having on the open track, Bob would still like a little more grunt coming out of the corners. To that end, there could be a Kenne Bell blower in the future. Should that upgrade come to pass, he'll certainly be glad of Eric LaFerriere's past guidance, because his motor was born ready. There's no doubt that a bunch more power will make this corner carver even more fun to drive... and, yes, of course, even more streetable.
