Nice! I've got a short block from an 87 turbocoupe sitting in the shop. I'm going to steal the pistons from them for my build. I've got a header and injectors, but my build probably won't be finished anytime soon...need to finish college first.

What are the plans for this build?? 2.3t are a sick motor.

plans for this build is a/c delete, new header, hurst shifter, thought about a new clutch since i blew off the last stage 3 spec... but i think that was due to a bad slave. and wanting to do a 8.8, and i am wanting to get that new AEM water meth kit with the new pump... more timing more power!

the headlights... not a product i would buy again..idk i just wasnt pleased.. they fit good just sometimes they fog up once in a while.

No vids yet. i will post some this spring when i get her back on the road.. and trust me she sings at 25lbs of boost.. :)
