So a buddy of mine back in that Commie state started the build, and he is known in the third gen world apparently quite well. In the 14 years I have known him, maybe 36 LSx swaps on various third gens and FC RX7's.

He was going for a "theme" build, but I am not a fan of making up trims that don't exist, and I need to fix a fair amount of stuff that he did kinda shitty, but he is a friend so I ain't gonna crap on him too hard lol.

Here is what's done, and a recent pic of the slow car.
