Thanks again. My stuff... Sony A350 with Sigma 18-200 lens and Hoya circular-polarizer.


And by the way... "clean" is an ironic expression in my case, isn't it?

Three winter shots...








Ford Probe GT F2T is a very reliable car by the way. Even in harsh road conditions (it's normal here... road services are allways surprised with that strange white thing falling from the sky...) it didn't dissapoint me. And it's still in a quite good shape for a car that is almost older than me. But on stock GE wheels (whitch are 185/65R14) it hasn't got traction in first ... three gears. Too much of a torque for those baby tires... but I'm a calm driver... especially when the mileage doesn't want to let me forget about my wallet.

Greetings, and... Happy Christmas

Thanks ;)

Yesterday a ehaust magic guy made an outstanding free-flow system. This is a enormous improvement comparing to the old system which was welded probably 100 times by probably 200 "specialists". Every single inch of my past ehaust was a disaster. My new exhaust is fully custom including self made mufflers - middle and last one - both full free flow with special French sound dampening mat. This setup is incredibly quiet and comfortable. For now I can't really tell you about the performance, because ECU isn't remaped yet ... other magic guy - this time from electronics - thought that I had bought other type of piggy-back and he couldn't do anything for that moment. I have already arranged a next a sesion in about week or so. For now my IHI turbo is pulling a 0.7 bar of boost and on higher gears under bigger boost pressure the stock setted computer is cutting off the fuel ... but firs three gears are amazing - on stock fuel map and only 0.7 bar of uncontrollable boost (the MBC wasn't installed because of the stock fuel maps). My exhaust specialist is looking for a intercooler that will easily fit my car without reconstructing the whole piping... stock FMIC from Iveco Daily truck should be a good way to go, esspecially that it costs about 70$ here, and is very rare because of it's performance and design (intlet/outlet are on one side). I installed a Properfekt BOV which is terribly loud (101dB at 0.7b) but that is what I've always wanted - wrrrrr...psss - pure awesome. Stock airbox was replaced with my recently bought air filter. The adapter was matched to the VAF for the best air flow rate. Now I'm going to install new springs, and Kosei wheels ... I've already painted my calipers in red.
