Default not so new

I've been doing the hpde thing with my 97 for a while now. It started out naturally aspirated and now has a gt2554 @ 15psi. It's been fun, but I'm trying to save some money now and I also replaced my well-behaved mspnp with a diypnp + sequential injection which is making me go crazy from trying to track down random misfires. The 97 needs some work before it can be driven hard again.

On the side I picked up this naturally aspirated 95 and am hoping to make it my track car after selling off my 05 gto. The headlights will be the first to go.

Dunno about the headlights. I couldn't pass up the 95 when it went for sale so I had to store it somewhere for a few months while the gto is parted out and sold. The place that has it might sell the lights for me or I might do it when it comes back.

No one is interested in the black 95? What if I post a pic of the engine bay.
