    Frank's a LONG time racing veteran.
    Literally has raced all over the world.

    He purchased this M12 last year and planned to work on it at his immaculate race shop. He ordered parts and prepared a plan to build his car for a combination of road and track use. For the past 7 months, we've fabricated and warehoused an entire shelf of goodies for this build.

    His current recipe is:

    1. Engine
    2. Single Turbo
    3. Upgraded Intercooler
    4. Dry Sump
    5. Suspension Mods.
    6. Cooling System Upgrade
    7. Stage 1 Transmission upgrade
    8. 6 Piston Brakes
    9. Front Aero
    10. Stage 1 Clutch
    11. Fire System
    12. Carbon Dipped Center Display panel
    13. Carbon Diffuser with 5 strakes
    14. Shifter Upgrade to M400 and short shifter kit

    We started off the build and dyno tested the engine and general inspection for a car that has 20K+ miles.
    It's very clean and runs as expected.

    We will keep every updated on our progress......

    FWIW, that could be condensed oil vapor from the crankcase breather that is ending up in the front turbo inlet hose .

    So true.
    But oil is also on the compressor outlet side.
