After a thousand or so miles she's holding strong and just the pump gas tune has been more than adequate to surprise quite a few.

Finally got the A/C charged up and so far temps have stayed nice and low.

I rebuilt the alt but am still having some charging woes. With the added fuel pump as well as the new Denale fan added to the existing sound system it is beyond time to upgrade the wiring and add a high amp alt unfortunately. With everything on I can only achieve 12.4-13.5ish. Then all I have to do is hit the turn signal and everything dims to the flash and it sounds like I put my cams back in..

Like any project it has an on going list of little things.

Well a year has passed and still going strong! I haven't turned a wrench in a year and that's a great feeling.. But since I normally change things up every two years.. What oh what should I plan for next year? Twins?

yeah, tub it and keep the rear seat

turbo and manual is probably meh unless the turbo's were sized for a badass Tq curve and not a peak number.

upside to turbo's is that with a good controller and some switches you can keep boost low for the traction limits of 1st/2nd etc

Ha, funny you bump this now. I passed a black Marauder with cowl hood parked on my block, and screeched the car to a stop to check it out. Still get a hard-on when I see these things.

As for what to do next, take it to the track!
