History
Bought in September '09 as a father / son project car. (He was 13 at the time.) Had fresh (but not very good) paint job and a few new parts on it. Headlight kit, stock replacement springs and shocks, and a Magnaflow cat-back. Other than that it was a dead-stock LX hatch with 86K miles.

Modifications

Drivetrain
The current engine is the bone stock 5.0 that came with the car.
Runs great! Never gave me a problem.
The one on the stand is the new one:
Stock-block 331
First-Gen Performer RPM heads
Scat cast steel crank
Scat H-beam rods
Mahle flat-tops
Comp 276HR
GT40 intake
Aviaid road-race pan
Blah, blah, blah.
I wanted a performance increase without boosting, yet I keep my A/C and low-speed driveability.
Interior
Fat Mat coated floor pan, dark gray ('85 or '86 color) mass-backed carpet.
Lots of scrubbing.
Exterior
GT spoiler, Mach 1 chin spoiler going on as part of this winter's update.
Audio
Sony head unit and speakers, Kenwood 150W sub-woofer
Suspension
The whole Maximum Motorsports catalog except the torque arm.
Bilsteins, front coil-overs, welded SFC's, MM STB, M-2300-K kit.
Wheel and Tire
1999-2004 17" GT wheels with 245/45-17's.
Working on an upgrade there.
