History
This was my first project car. I purchased it in 2005 with over 200,000 miles on the odometer. I tore it down to the frame, repainted, rebuilt the engine and transmission, and replaced critical parts. 1st gear now has dual synchros, 5th gear is taller and I installed a fwd Quaiffe lsd.

Big plans for the summer of 2014. I will be removing the supercharger and installing 15G turbos.

Modifications

Drivetrain
I installed a Thomas Knight modified M90 supercharger kit. It originally had a 4 rib belt that always slipped. I had six rib pulleys custom made and I made a new tensioner system (that has been copied by TK on his newer systems). I got 230 WHP on the dyno with 10:1 pistons and 8 psi boost. I recentily installed 8:1 pistons and have no idea what the HP gains are over stock. I am running at 9 psi.

**new 1/8/13
I was never happy with the manifold design coming off the supercharger. I just had a machine shop open it up for more air flow. I hope it make a big difference in cooling the air charge and procucing more top end power.
Interior
I recovered the seats with a two tone kit from Leatherseats.com. I originally had an A pillar pod with AFR, Boost and EGT gauges but I moved the gauges to the dashboard above my radio and got rid of the pod.
Exterior
Stock exterior. Replica wheels.
Audio
I took out the stock radio when I moved the gauges and installed a single DIN radio.
Suspension
Eibach lowering springs installed 2012. I really like them.
Also 3sx poly motor mounts.
Wheel and Tire
Stock sizes. Wheel and Cap replica 1996 six spoke wheels with P-Zero tires.

Quaife differential, aftermarket overdive 5th gear from Jack's Transmissions.
