The WAI is new to me. Looks sweet though. I’ll check with him tonight. It looks like it might be on the car.
I just noticed in that picture that he appears to have an intake temp gauge just to the left of the steering wheel. More pics of the WAI on the photobucket page, including underhood pics of it installed.

The wai is adjustable by choke cable left of steering wheel. It is the same setup as the link in my signature.

Notice the skirt doesn’t require a “bulge” to clear the bridgestone re92 165/65/14.
I did notice on the original photo, mostly because I have the VX wheels and have been wishing I could manage little or no bulge around the rear fenders on my 1998 civic. Double thanks for that great detail. I also have been wondering about using some lexan I have around from a house project for the tail light area around a similar part boattail.... so cool to see it has been done. Looks like he painted part of the lexan and also drilled into the body to secure the pieces. Is that correct?

What is the Kammback made out of? What tire's is he running on those spares? Most spare tires are not low rolling resistance despite being thin.

Gotta put the kids in bed. Sheepdog, aluminum and re32? Can't remember. It is in an earlier post.
Wd40, thanks but....I don't deserve congratulations. My dad and uncle did this car in Memphis. But I wish I could have helped

Yeah, he left the fuel pump relay accessible in case his kill switch craps out.
