Just as the title says, I picked up a 99, bone stock, 1 owner car. As of now, it will serve as my fun commuter car (25mpg mixed>15mpg mixed of my SUV)
In addition to that, its going to by my track toy. And before you ask, yes, I've spent lots of time at the track. My old rig had a massive 118whp..similar to the miata. Except it was <450lbs wet. I crashed it though
Plans for the car are, KISS, basic suspension, sticky tires and good brakes. No desire to chase plastic trophies at this point, more than content using more expensive cars as lap traffic to feed my speed ego. I do have a tow vehicle, but with a pending big financial obligations, just not going to gut it and go all out yet. That and I have to re-learn how to drive a 4 wheeled vehicle fast. Going to start off with a very conservative 5-6PSI tune (150whpish??) to accomplish this. I'll run this until I fry the clutch. Once I do that, new clutch, 55mm Radiator, oil cooler, and shoot for 200-220whp.
In addition to this, I plan to keep the car tame and CARB legal, being im stuck in commiefornia and intend to drive it daily.
