VEHICLE STORY

Found the car on Craigslist for 1500, high mileage chassis, but had a low miles jdm b20b swap. Seemed like a decent deal, was looking for a small underpowered car with good chassis dynamics and good potential. Drove 2 hours, picked it up drove it home that night. Describe the modifications you've made. Where did you start, what’s the most recent mod and what motivated it? So the car had a fully stock b20b swap when I purchased it, initial mods were really just routine maintenance. First real mods were focused on handling, coilovers, brakes and tires. Of all the mods you’ve made, which do you think offers the biggest bang for the buck? Tires, tires, tires How did you go about selecting the specific parts for this build? Any installation tips to share? What are you planning next? Semi built turbo b16 (built with good quality parts and reliability in mind). Hoping to make around 375/400whp, sway bars, aero. What’s been the biggest challenge with this build? Dealing with high mileage, 25+ year old maintenance a lot of little parts have been discontinued, so you have to improvise.

The closest track to me is a 1/4 mile drag strip, would like to do circuit racing but the closest to me is virginia international or Charlotte, both 5 hours away.
