Nice spec, what power levels are you running?

Any plans to uprate the suspension or braking? What OBD2 upgrade did you go with?

I have no idea what the power levels are the first time we took it out it smoked the first gear clutch pack. so we're in the process of rebuilding the transmission so we can take it up to the local tuner shop and get it pulled into place. It's on all polyurethane bushings stock suspension in springs enkei 15-inch wheels 205 60 15 Yokohama s drives

That's often the way, a tuned car shows up any other weak components.

I think we've all been there. I had one project car that didn't even do more than 200 miles before something broke and it needed to go in for repairs!

It's been my experience with hot rodding that no " Project" is actually driveable until it breaks about 6 things. Then it's almost reliable
