Default I'M Back!

i just picked up a mani. the guy says it is a OBX, but it is a cast Aluminum. It looks simular 2 a HKS.

He was using it racing until he wrecked.

And Rails hooked me up with some 305cc's.

Know I just need to decide if I'm going bipes or staying with the MSD.

I'm not to worried about running base 14*. As long as i can keep the base 10-12. Life will be simple. Turn the key, watch the WB, TAKE MUSTANGS.

Maybe it's just really cheap steel that's as light as aluminum.

I'm just going by what the idiot on ebay said. It isn't a OBX for sure. And it does look like a Greddy, and I had my doubts on aluminum too. But he swares he had a T25 on it.

As long as it is cast, I'm good.

If the T25 doesn't fit, my cousin has a td04-15G in the garage. I'll just rebuild it and sell it as a combo.

Thanks guys.
