Well it's been a while and its soon time to get started on the toy again .

If you have been out of the loop I cracked the block .

Parted out the motor and got 1/3 of my new short block money out of it .

Picked up cosworth heads and s2 cams.

There will be a closed deck block with full manley setup and billet crank going in.

Air suspension will be starting to get installed in the next few weeks and get some flares lined up and tires and we can see this baby alive again soon .

Anyway I will update soon .

didn't know if you're still working on this but I really hope you don't change to those horrible looking flares that all these kids are putting on. Anyway good luck with that motor build.

Trying to get it together .

finally bolted the flares to the car vs the screws . Flares are down to the final details on fitment on back sides after bolt up has changed a few things . These flares will be the death of me lol
