"How about some details on the suspension and powertrain?"


The engine is a 3.2 from an 89 with 50,000 miles; the guy got hit, front right "nasty". The engine is stock except for the exhaust which was modified due to limited clearance between the engine and bumper. Cut out most of the catalytic converter (just after the oxygen sensor) and fit a performance muffler in the wheel well. Research suggested a front oil cooler, which has worked extremely well, although it hasn't gotten very warm here in Minnesota "no global warming going on here". The transmission is from the last owner, itís a 915 with a Wevo shifter. The whole setup is pretty fast and smooth with a fair bit of torque.

For the suspension I use Bilstein RSR coil over struts and shock kit with aluminum trailing arms with momoball mounts. Very happy with this setup, except for the rear shocks squeak, WHATS WITH THAT????

I plan to modify the engine a bit next winter.
