Thumbs up these really are extraordinary cars...ain't they?

Replaced the clutch cable and installed a new O-ring on the throttle body to intercooler interface (had a small boost leak there), and proceeded to flog the car like I had stolen it AND was angry!!! Clubbed her like a baby seal! I'm really just amazed at how good these cars feel!!! Mine turned 21 this year and still has no squeaks, rattles, or shakes!! The fit and finish every where is just impeccable!

I have no regrets in foregoing more "traditional" transportation to utilize this car as my daily driver.

Next on my list is the suspension...

They truly are. I have a long list of friends who want to go for a ride. when I take them out I find a lonely stretch of back road and just open her up. I tell them to scream when they want me to stop. I dont usual get to far before they start screaming. Then there like "I never knew such an old car could be that fast"

any big plans for your suspension? poly-bronze? rsr coil overs? full track set up? hahaha. I keep forgeting that car is your daily driver, I dont know how you do it...

Very well put, sandman. I don't know how many other 21 year-old stock cars I'd feel comfortable in rocketing along a downhill straight heavy into the boost, seeing the upcoming corner's guardrail loom closer and closer, visualizing the precipitous cliff on the other side of said armco, and still feeling comfortable hitting the brakes late and hard to scrub off enough speed to make the tight corner ahead.

Let me know when you get to the torsion bars so I can swing by and take a look. I know I will have to upgrade mine in the near future as I am getting too much flex. I need to get back over and visit Olli in High Point now that he has his car off the lift. He is running a coil over set up.

Cant forget sway bars with beefed up WEVO mounts.... The "while you were in there's" are what will really kill ya!

He he, funny you say that. Last year my cousin visited from overseas and I took him for a spirited drive in the turbo cab. Afterwards, he said he felt "nauseous" from the acceleration. Still got the claw marks on the dash. What a p*ssy

You know, I wondered why there were scratch marks in the leather on the dash and around the passenger door handle when I got the car. I'm beginning to understand how that happened...

The car ran fine off boost, but when I'd start spooling, a sort of "whooshing" / "whistling" sound that wasn't coming from the turbo or wastegate could be heard. Plus I noticed that the engine was having a hard time maintaining boost all the way to my redline. Being that I'm now on 965 intercooler running gear, I thought that my billet compressor by-pass valve might be stuck, but then I noticed that the intercooler seemed to be sort of cocked where it fit on the throttle body. Further inspection revealed that the O-ring was cut.
