Car Description:
2005 Baja Turbo Mod List

--------- interior --------------
- 9.7/10 interior. one of the cleanest ive ever seen. Leather looks brand new, soft touch areas are still immaculate

-------- mechanicals------------
- as close to stock as possible
- has a Mishimoto rad to help with cooling issues, trans cooler is custom work

***** I was not sure which category to enter the Baja in. I use it as an off roader, but I feel that if I enter the overlanding category it will be up against people with 10k in RTTs and awnings, we don't so much live in our Baja, We use it to explore the hard to reach places in the Rockies. I would appreciate any suggestions on which category would be best for this lifted Turbo Baja. ****

I spent half my life waiting to get this Baja, and the last 3 years slowly realizing the vision I had for it, piece by piece. I would be so honored to show it to other people. This build has a lot of the big checkboxes marked off for the people that get into them, the last piece of the puzzle I need is an EJ dual range 5 speed.
