Bought my car back in 2002 with engine fire damage for $500. Here are some pics from my TD days when it was still NA.

This was on stock boost (7lbs) and a crappy fuel pump, I still have this tune but with a better pump now. But this was the best run by far, the other 2 runs made 163whp and 168whp, pretty sad for a turbo rotary.

Had to cut and extend the tierods too.



I added some cold rolled steel round stock and then used some pipe to sleeve it for extra strength.



Extended LBJ and tierods with a pirate flare, ARRRRR!

And just in case you don't think 160whp-175whp isn't enough to smoke some tires......

Almost all the parts I showed above are new for this year, still untested. Hopefully they can stand up to my abuse Smile

TIG welders are awesome but slow LOL, it took me forever to do the LBJ at my work. But someday I'll buy my own and that will solve half the problem.

Thanks Slideways.
