I bought my 1988 Sophia white SPH car a few years ago from its original owner and started off just wanting to get her back on the road. After some routine maintenance and a new fuel system I started driving her some before converting to Scott's MS2 plug and play TBI system. Bigger injectors, a walbro 255 and some other supporting mods she was back on the road again........  for a little while. Then it was time to go MPI. 4 1300 cc injectors, AEM 380lph fuel pump and an eBay gt35r turbo, edis crank trigger, optical dizzy, Scott's COP system, an Aussie M9 head, and some other engine parts, boost controller, blah blah blah.  She gets caught out in a storm and hail damage.  Not bad just a few spots but that is what has led me to taking her in for a face lift and some other things.

Borg Warner SX257-sxe
T4 Header by Chad to compliment the intake he built
Tial wastegate
Rack swap
CX racing inter cooler and radiator
More than I need to list so here comes some pictures
