    Been saving and searching for my first ever project car and here it is. Bought the car March 2017 with 150k miles all "stock" and was looking to keep it that way. Me being a dumbass blew the head gasket after 30 miles of driving time. I then realized there were tons of mistakes and issues left by the previous owners so I decided to pull the motor and start from scratch. Everything now other than the motor has been done by myself for the very first time.

    Goal is to be in the 12 second 1/4 mile range and for it to also handle some windy roads.

    Named this profile underrated since there were old decals on the rear side glass that said "underrated" which have now been removed. Totally fits the car though.

    Creating this profile and journal after almost one year of ownership and research in order to seek guidance and information from wisemen (especially for tuning) that may be specific to my car.
