Heres where the car sits today. Ive ripped out a few things off the engine to prepare for the teardown. I dont have much time always so it goes in random stages. Here's the pics.




i bought a autometer boost gauge and a lotek guage pod.

I welded a plate to hold my msd SS coil. (my first welding ever) mig welder btw.
