      Race valves/288 cam installed
      Bottom end is stock
      Stock ECU
      Header with straight exhaust and Borla muffler.
      Solid aluminum front engine mount.

      Stock 5 speed tranny with new clutch/pressure place installed

      Team Dynamics 15x7's w/ Yokohama A048's mounted on them.

      Ground Control camber plates and suspension
      Single adjustable Koni yellows
      600lb front springs/700lb rear springs
      No front bar/26mm rear bar

      New pads/rotors up front

      Paint has been damaged from sticker removal on top.

      Paint isn't to bad otherwise.
      It has a draw that drains the battery in a day or two.

      Will need a catalyst installed in the exhaust system if you want to get it inspected.

      It runs, quite well.
      Just installed a new battery and wheel studs.

      I would drive it daily but it does not have a catalytic converter so I don't think it will pass emissions in Austin. I've been trying to get a sticker for it.

      Any videos of it? More pictures? Interior pictures? My brother may be interested in it.

      Only has door cards and dash as far as the interior.

      Pretty much a race car without a full cage.

      I'll post the video this weekend.

      That's nice. Wow. Does the engine have idle problems or problems staying on with the port and polish.
