93' black touring

Hi all, starting a new build thread. This time keeping it mostly stock, for now at least. It's going to be a slow build, as I have a few other projects under way.

I have a 94 R2 that is heavily modified, so looking to keep this more tame. But would like to hear your advise before I get started on it.

It's stock, 93 touring, black on tan, automatic, clean title, 80k miles. It has a blown motor. I have another that I'll drop in, but keeping it auto for now.

Let me know what option you'd go with:
1. Keep completely stock
2. Simplified sequential, but otherwise stock
3. Simplified sequential, plus basic mods of SMIC, fuel system, PFC or adaptronic plug and play, AEM smart coils.

I really don't want to go too crazy, but not sure if it makes sense to stay completely stock. I have most of the parts for the basic upgrades. Wouldn't mind hearing a few opinions before making a decision.

More pics to come, but here is a pic from when I picked it up.

Nice! Stinks that it's an auto. But you can't beat the mileage.

The ECU for the auto cars has a lot of control on the auto, it does the hold feature and all that jazz. If you want to do a PFC with the auto Banzai Racing has an adapter that lets the stock ECU plug in with the PFC so it can control the auto and the PFC controls the engine.

Thanks Dale, I was starting to lean toward adaptronic PnP. Any chance anyone know if that works with an Auto or know how to make it work?

Also, now that I've done a compression test and know the front rotor has 0psi on all three corners (RCT 5 doesn't even register on the front rotor and no audible pulses), I need to get the twins off to see if they ate a seal. If they are damaged, this is going to take a turn toward single turbo real fast.

Awesome. Was just about to email you haha. Wasn't sure if it worked for the different types of ecu's, but I guess if they are plug n play, pin outs must be the same for a patch harness.
