But i'm the first poster.

Hey everyone. My name's Damon, and i have a problem :P

since i haven't quite figured out where to put a mod list on my car, i'll put it all in this thread for the time being. Hope everyone enjoys it, and also hope i'm setting a nice benchmark B)

Yeah, it's got some rust, but it's an average 92 with 150k+ miles. i'm fine with that. if i ever get serious enough about it i'll find a rust free shell. but for now, form follows function.

yeah, it's the LX9. No hard numbers yet but whenb i dyno this summer i'm thinking it'll be around 260ish WHP.

Stock tranny = NVG550. now that i think about it, it's actually a 91, which would be a Getrag, but there's no difference in this case.

3.1 was stock. 100-110whp FTL.
