I purchased this car in 2002 with 190k/mi miles from an enthusiast who had a time shortage. At 193k/mi I removed the motor for what was supposed to be timing and reseal work, but have gone all-in for a complete rebuild and Miller MAF/WAR kit. Future mods: Bilstein shocks (HD or Sport), restore bodywork and paint, better brakes.

Update (06/09): Engine is in reassembly stage in the basement. ETA: 1mo

Update (09/16): I was optimistic about being able to complete in 1 month, 7 yrs ago. Now it truly is together, but still working out the kinks with the DME. ETA: 1mo
