    This post is super vague. We cant possibly help without knowing what you are trying to do. Budget? Goals? Why the ten days?

    Also,

    Much respect, wiseman. As you can see the need for speed is paramount! This car is going to be a long distance commuter and soon. I dont know my way around them and dont want to overlook anything that could deprive me of a functioning vehicle and or freely achieved hp. Hope that's specific enough.

    Hmm, if you just want cheap performance stuff then look up 1g dsm free mods. It's all the stuff people used to do back in the day when most dsms were stock. Other then that, just fix anything that is broken? :)

    If you just got this car then maintenance is first. Belts, hoses etc. You need documented history or fix it yourself. I wouldn't even do a free mod right now. How much have you driven it? Are you saying it's gutted or you plan to gut it. We need more info. Does it run now?

    Runs. Kid rebuilt the engine with his old man. 20thou K on rebuild. Its been parked and hadnt run for a year. She barks up nice. After taking it up to the gas station I discovered a fuel leak at the rail connection. She was idleing fast while the leak was present. I changed the o ring but havent run it since as shes up on jackstands getting fluids and filters done as well as any obvious stuff buttoned. Clutch needs to be adjusted me thinks. And yes, Ive ripped out the interior. I will proceed as instructed with routine maint and post again if any gremlins rear their ugly heads. 5 40 penz platinum synthetic engine. 75 90 lucas synthetic trans.

    No way I would drive it far without a full timing belt job. It's been sitting in one place too long.

    Visual inspection likely won't tell you much. If it does then that's way worse. You will spot leaks. Fix them.

    1g pulls puss so hard bro, you need to invest in rubbers by the hundred pack. Don't even sweat anything else, just make a bed frame in the hatch and call it done.

    Banjo fitting for the turbo oil feed appeared to be leaking...hard line was wet all the way down to the top of the turbo. Got a wrench on there to snug it up and the banjo bolt spun into two pieces! And yes I understand over torqueing. Luckily I was able to spin out the portion left in the head by hand. Makes me wonder about the rebuild...hopefully those boys had there torque wrench handy.
