shes not running yet. I had issues with the efi computer and have to send it back to the dealer for repairs. Since the car is in IL and Iím working in AK I only get to play with her about two weeks a year. But she is really close to running. Get the computer back and she should be running. But that wonít happen till the next trip.

Definitely best of luck in getting the car back up and running! ! Sucks to be away from a project for that amount of time.

That engine looks like it could be a daily driver, and kick as on the dragstrip, and kick *** autocrossing, and kick *** in a car show.

At car shows , it is mostly undrivable garage queens that have engines that don't even run. I hate that!!!
