So... what's up with the FD? Is that yours?

Nah, not mine. I share this shop with a buddy, it's his. It's pretty much a rolling (barely) shell. It's getting the 2jz/1jz hybrid we've got sitting in the back of the shop dumped in it.

This is strangely disappointing. What a pig of a motor to put in that light car.

Anyways.. carry on, lol.

It's a shell that i personally feel would be better suited in the scrapyard. Nothing of value is being lost.

It's also COMPLETELY gutted. Weight distribution might be a little weird, but overall it'll end up being lighter than a stock car.

I actually almost traded my 93 Miata for an FD roller in better shape than this one. I would have put an F2T in it as well. Just because.

Unfortunately, it's harder to put an F2T in an FD because of transmission things than a Miata i'm pretty sure. So i skipped. Plus i'd rather have a 2100lb car making all the torque than a heavier one.

The ability to fit more tire would have been nice, though.
