When i purchased this car it was lacking in care as well as maintenance as most of our cars are found abused and neglected. Since purchase i have added a VX cam, ipd adjustable cam gear advanced 2.5degrees, new headgasket/rebuilt cylinder head, timing belt, water pump, bilstein touring shocks and struts, all new rotors and pads on all four corners, bedliner roof and hood ( faded clear), new spark plugs, cap and rotor, ipd turbo exhaust, 93 classic wheels, TLAO fuel and ignition chips, URO poly accessory bushings,new corner lenses and headlight, replaced IAC, and ceramic tint all the way around.

Yes I have all the components for a turbo build and a 531 head and extra b230f to rebuild. This is my daily driver and has been all the way to San Diego in the west and all the way to Rhode Island New York, with regular trips to Dallas, South Padre Island, New Orleans. Needless to say it has been built to be reliable. So with the Texas Heat in the summer as well as the humidity I worry about cooling. So when I go Turbo it will be mild, but I will get a new Oil cooler and ewer style inter cooler to be mounted below in the front.

NICE car man. Looks very similar to my 93 245, including the black hood. Yours appears to be in nicer condition though.

Nope she’s all stock except for a T cam, tint, iPd sways, headunit and i think that’s it. Lots of maintenance stuff done just about everything.

‘Big stuff’ coming up is the clutch when i stop being lazy.

It’s got something funky going on in the rear end. A vibration on decel and a nice clunk on accel. Waiting for the rear end to drop out.

Crap pipe ideas include koni yellows and iPd springs all the way around but man that stuffs expensive.

I’ll prolly throw a B cam I’m there soon, the T is pretty boring.
