This car has been forsale around here for about a year, on eBay and craigslist. Had a few different owners and after they bought it they put it up forsale again. there was someone here that posted that they were going to buy this car and tune it and drive it back to new Hampshire and everyone said not to do it. I though about buying this car but it has a bad rep. Last year the guys was trying to sell it cause it was a pile, hopefully you didn't buy a $5000 piece of crap.
Good luck with it and get it sorted out before the dyno day and let's run it.

Gotta love that.

Looks awesome. Your interior wires looked a little ghetto. I love the ITB set up and I even dig the way that front bumper is cut.

I must say, that car is DEFINITELY worth the price you paid for it.

Such a steal and a cool car, I wouldn't mind doing a swap like this or the F series Honda motor...


Does the Oil cooler effect the efficiency of the intercooler?

If the cooler is worth a ****, for street driving you will want to bypass the cooler. I couldn't get my oil temps up to 170-180 on the V8 before folding the license plate up and using it as a block off plate.

Neat looking car though. Its a 3.5 inch turbo back exhaust, a real radiator, and 6UL's with NT01's away from being 100% sexy.

I want 6UL'S so bad and i want to run a massive half radiator so the filter could get cold air not hot air, plus run a bigger filter.
