Modifications

Drivetrain
Stock 2 litre with centerline exhaust headers
SPICA fuel injection

I need Wes Engram to do his Magic on the Spica Pump. Its working but requires a rebuild.
Well....Here she is (see pic)!!!! My Wes Ingram - correct - T255/1Pump. Alfa Porn!!!
Interior
Stock for the most part.
Had to re-do the wood veneer due to UV fading. I think it looks good - closer to original color.
Vinyl seats original and holding up well.
Replaced Blaupunkt Radio with Becker Mexico.
Carpet is grey and faded a bit but I like the Look....for now.
Exterior
GTA look.
Lowered, one repaint in original color (using lacquer) and well done.
GTA replica rims (Hein Brand)
PO removed bumpers
Audio
The sound of that Twin cam!!!
Louder than stock due to Magna Flow muffler and resonator.
Also my two kids when they are with me.
Suspension
Bilstein springs and shocks which lowers the car to a nice sporty level. Ride is firm but makes the car feel like a sports car.
Update-I had a 'clunk' in the front suspension and found it was the Bilstein shocks...replaced with original Spica shocks and love them.
Wheel and Tire
Yokahama Avid H4s 19565R/14
Hein Brand GTA replica rims.
