Let me know.  I'm going to sell my red one shortly and concentrate on my XR2, don't really need much, but love to get out and ramble anyway.

I will do for sure, I've been itching to get out for awhile now. I really got to pick up a set of knuckles so I can finally put the big brakes on.

Alright here's a little update, and I'm sorry for my lack of pictures and stuff I've been incredibly busy these last couple weeks. Anyway onto the good/bad stuff my Capri sprung a huge leak in the heater hose and I've had trouble replacing it, I just finally got it replaced. As of next week I'm going to be on Vacation so I plan on banging some stuff out. I'm planning on getting my interior cleaned up then and shooting pictures, aswell as cleaning up the engine bay. Another cool thing I have to share is I'm getting extremely close to the amount needed to turbo the engine, and do it right so that should be coming soon. I've started looking onto running BG suspension in hopes of using the e153 awd trans. I'll post more layer hope everyone is doing well.

Here's a couple questions regarding the GTX for Clay. 1 does it share it's own unique K-Frame or is it different. If it does and I can acquire it will it bolt into the fwd chassis or is that different aswell.

Yup that's the plan all of his stuff has great reviews. It is pretty pricey though so that's been abit of a problem. I'm planning on running his COP plate and one of their Evo8 Ecus.

Cool, all that custom stuff is going to be expensive.  Lots of work has to go into R&D and also the manufacturing.  There's no economy of scale because so few people are interested and the guy's gotta make a living.  I hope it all works for you.  You know he has to have something going when his Festiva does 150 in a quarter.
