Mine isn't driven in the rain that's why I run it. Next year when I get a different vehicle it will probably go to daily driver duty since it will be worth 1/3 of the car I want to purchase.

this weekend we modified my turbo xs gt exhaust and made it an rfl. pretty happy with how the tail section came out and the fitment is nice. may try to lower it a tad if it starts to cook my bumper.

its been awhile since i posted. not much has changed as i have been just driving and enjoying it. i did pick up these black housing headlights locally for a good price. also ordered the ottp short throw shifter to replace the B&M one we got from the junkyard car. also scored a set of powell towhooks on ebay for a great price. not sure if im gonna use them yet but couldnt say no to the price.

oem style black housing headlights

i think the lnf this will be fine. when we tuned my old lsj we spliced the afr into the ac switch and used that signal to tune it without the pro hptuners. if i need to in the future ill upgrade it.

Yeah I know the ac splice is a possibility, but I dont have a need to upgrade my cable right now so I'll wait till the pro is out to do so. Lnf is fine to use the standard version since it has a wideband stock.
