Any photos by chance? It sounds like a nice ride.
I live in Austin (78726) off 620 9 months out of the year and I've been looking for a reliable shop around the area. I'll have to come check you guys out sometime.

We cleaned it up tonight and just took some interior pics. Too dark for exterior, so I'll take some tomorrow.

We're showing it on Saturday at our shop in Georgetown. If anyone's in the Austin area, this is a map to that shop.

We'll be there most of the day working on the '94 LS6 project

As for Dyno sheets, I believe Stephanie (BEGI) has the latest. Steph, if you have any can you send them my way?

The car is now in my garage in Round Rock. The potential interest to see it at the Gtown shop didn't pan out, so if anyone is interested, shoot me an email or PM!

We finally got a dyno sheet from BEGI. This was "low boost" from what Steph says. Good curves, but does make more power now with boost turned up a bit more, but Steph couldn't find any of the latest dynos.

If this was a 10AE with a bigger turbo, then this would be my dream Miata and I'd be flyin down there to drive it home. $12,500 seems high until you read all the parts that are involved with this thing. Good luck with the sale!

Oh you mean my car? Well sort of, the motor is in my garage and I'm watching others' builds to see if the 2871 is the right choice for me...

Built engine, BEGi turbo, full exhaust, coil overs, etc. It's a really nice build.

heh, thanks guys. it's definitely not a 10AE. When the fuel management is sorted out it'll be a dream, but even right now it's still stupid fast. If it doesn't sell as a whole (make offers!) he'll probably have me part it out next. Start making your dibs now.

Dan,
Sorry to keep whoring on your thread but I was too stupid to read your signature earlier and just realized who you are. I bought Buck's 10ae that was at your shop a few months ago.
