I'd like to go turbo.
That's the main thing I want to do to the
engine right now.
I was going for a basic NA tune setup,
however certain things have made me want to
go tbo. I have thought about superchargers,
however finding all the parts for a d-series
dohc and getting them for a good price is a
good deal harder than just getting a turbo
set for it that just about every place has
for sale. And the gains for SC setups that
I've seen haven't been anything world
shaking, a basic turbo setup is just better
hp for money.
I'd like to do the whole
buckets and race harness thing, but I'm not
sure what I'll end up doing as I need to
keep it so that I can revert to stock or
near stock for the annual inspection we have
over here. Having no rear seat is a problem,
but I've heard that having the seat belts
back there is enough. Odd as that may seem I
will find out shortly.
Also I'm gonna get stock black air vents
etc. when I see a good set that I can grab.
There's really nothing I'd
change right now. Possibly fix some of the
things that didn't turn out as good as I
would have liked. Mainly stuff nobody can
see, but I know are there.
