Its been 2 years since I bought the 2002. I cant believe it! Its been a labor of love. I have made some modifications…repairs and driven the hell out of it. Its truly the best car I have ever owned and by far the most fun to drive. There is something about a lightweight car with a pesky high revving engine and a simple interior that makes a car just…DRIVABLE!

In the 2 years I have done the following:

Replace Engine Piano Top Pistons (9.5:1 comp) 284 Cam
Sachs Clutch
New Guibo
New Transmission Mounts
Ireland Engineering Step Headers
New Weber 38 DGES Carb
Recaro Seats
Recovered Rear Seats to Match
Nakamichi CD500 Stereo
Hertz HSK 165 Seperate Speaker system
New Door Panels
14” BBS RZ Rims
Ireland Engineering Stage II Springs
Bilstein Sport Shocks
Electric Fan Conversion
Replaced Radiator
Replaced Head Gasket
Replaced Master Cylinder
Euro Bumper Conversion
Replaced Fuel Sender

Still to do:
Big Brake Upgrade (have it in boxes! Its the next mod!)
5 Speed Conversion (Good 5 speed sitting in Garage!)
Dual Weber DCOE 40 Sidedrafts (sitting in a box waiting to go in!)
Install new Carpet Kit (Sitting in Box!)
Install AC system (Sitting In Box)
Rebuild and Install new Heater Box (all parts sitting in box)
Ireland Engineering/Zender Air Dam
Hella 160 Fog Lights
Replace upper Chrome Trim
Fix Radio Antenna
Install New Door Brakes
Install Rear Speakers
Install Amp
Install Subwoofer
Euro Turn Signals

As you can see, its come a long way, and its still got a ways to go…but here is what t looks like today!
