It's in the garage and I took a few photos (in the garage). They aren't great, but you can get an idea of what kind of work I still have cut out for me.

Don't give me any crap about the picture sizes. I switched this machine to Windows Vista and my resizer won't work and I had to find another one. So, I'm stuck with what I've got right now.

It's a bit ugly, and plenty dusty, but it's "mine".

You have been slacking lately with no car to work on. I'd say you better get cracking. (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/whip.gif)

Yes I do. Thank you very much for the donation!

You just want to autocross it, that's why you gave me a seat..... (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/ph34r.gif)

Holley Stealth Ram. It's basically an EFI tunnel ram setup. I guess Holley is selling it as a Weiand piece too, but it's this one:

Well, this one has "track whore" written all over it. I've got a brake kit in a box, 4 IROC wheels in a stack, a seat on the floor, Koni's in a box, rear GC springs and jacks in the corner, tires on the way, and a 22mm hollow sway bar in the garage. I need front springs, front Koni's and 17" wheels (and to get all of it installed).

Let me know when you're bored..... (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/2thumbs.gif)

It's already got a large front sway bar, SFC's, and a reasonable amount of torque (and possibly some horsepower).

17" wheels are overrated. Run the 16"'ers and build it for CMC... this is coming from a guy trying to run AI. (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

It's got a splayed main cap 353 with a billet front cap, ARP studs, a crane roller cam, aluminum heads, undercut valves, comp pro magnum roller rockers, a stealth ram and a 6 speed/3.73 combo, I've got C4hd rotors and "1LE" calipers in a box to install and plenty of other stuff (spohn crossmember/torque arm combo, etc). It's way too far gone to back up now.

I've got a set of 1992 wheels that are mostly round (I think they'd be ok for track wheels, but the bead area is slightly not round, but it doesn't seem to have actually bent the wheel) and I've got 4 IROC wheels that I'm going to use for a while then they'll be up for sale.

Very cool project, sort of like my '91 Formula! I will give you some crap about the kitty litter - one might say keeping cats and hi-po/race cars are very compatible in a way, eh Mitch? Meow!!!! (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

That could take a while. Got a few things of my own to take care of. Still, let me know when you need a hand.

Nah, it's not too far gone until you start doing stuff like cutting the roof support out for weight... (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/rotf.gif)

C4HD rotors work, you'd just have to cut them down to 12".

Anyway, run it as a track car with the bullet, then WHEN you decide to race, give CMC a long think (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

I'll probably go AV8SS if I run any series. I won't make all of the events, but I might hit the close ones. That might leave me to run AI/AIX from time to time as well. And, I suspect that we'll autocross the crap out of it too.

I've done it before, it's easy. Rip it all out, cut plates, seal with sealer (silicone?) and rivet in place. It's not a difficult job.
