Ok John, Starquest Members, I'm starting my "quest" to insanity.  I'll just start by giving a ton of credit to all of you here, indebted for the insight and knowledge gained by lurking on the forums.  So far, Engine out, the bay is stripped.  All the wiring in the car removed.  The dash and interior is out.  The harnesses are not going back in but I plan to use most of the wiring.  For those of you that replaced the factory harness after it was removed, my hat is off to you.  Pictures will soon follow.
Does anybody offer Lay-away anymore?

Oh yeah!  I'll be watching this one too.

Need more details.  What transmission?  What other modifications?  Do you plan on going to TSQ14, if so, will it be ready?

Not sure what transmission but it will be a 6 spd.  it'll take me a few years so I don't anticipate being able to attend next year.

Oh, one more thing.  I'm scrapping the stock suspension.  I'll be riding on air.  The front will be independent SLA.  Rear will also remain independent but not sure what I'll do.
