    after that we got twin 255 lph walboro fuel pumps, 60 # injectors, geting the lower intake ported, blower rebuilt and ported and then port matched to the plenum and throttle body, new maf, upgrade the water pump, electric fans, headers, valve covers, larger intercooler resivor tank (polish aluminum), might as well do the raditor resiivor tank too, I know bad spelling,...then random gaskets and bolts, and tuning.....then the rear suspension will need some attention

    Damn that sounds like a lot of work! But then again, I should talk.. I am SO far over my head on Project WS87 that I'm not sure I can see the surface..

    yes no body work here thank god...rear suspension...set of cal-tracs, qa1s, and drive shaft loop....then start shopping for bajas and some MT slicks, once the break in is done...find me a 10# lower pulley, and ask the tuner how big a shot I can run on pump gas

    Eventually she'll get a good rebuild.. full suspension.. turbo.. the works.. but right now I'm trying to get her running.. then start saving up.. hadn't realized putting my engine back together would cost so much...
