    I haven't driven it in almost 3 months. Been waiting for parts and the like. Worked head, cams, tubular manifold, T3/4 upgrade, rebuilt tranny with quaiffe, DriveShaft shop stg3 axles. We're looking for arond 300whp. Everything is finished and being reassembeled now and should be done by friday. The valence is off the car so it fits over the lift.

    You ahve no idea. You have to remove EVERYTHING to get to the god damned water pump. This was the reason for starting to take shit apart. The water pump went so while it was apart i just said fuck it and we're going all out now.

    You went waaaaaaaaay overboard with your mods if you want 300whp.

    AEM axles? T3/T4 turbo? Quaiffe diff? Overkill... :ugh:

    quaiffe = good not overkill

    you dont know the specs of the turbo

    better axles = they wont break under 300whp

    Damn... I need to start selling aftermarket car parts to take advantage of you people. Now I suddenly see why so many people do it. If I could part idiots with their money so easily... hmmmmm.
