    Been building cars since 1978 mostly GM Camaros, Novas, Chevelles and V-8 Vegas now building 3rd gen Camaros without computers and ...DSM's Have an all original 1990 GSX with new transfer case and transmission for a parts car. This 1990 Red/Black Talon was RESCUED from an Army mechanic that had slapped it together with mismatched head/intake and every nut bolt and screw on the car was loose when I got it. The head is a 7 bolt and the PO had HAMMERED in the ARP 6 bolt studs, what a bad home. It is in much better hands now!

    Terrible 60' times on only night before she broke, will get better with seat time in this new AWD platform, even better with the new upgrades coming next year being installed.

    I just let the car "work", no fancy fast shifts, just ALOT of RIGHT FOOT!

    I have been building cars since I was 13 and I am 55 this year. Lots of builds under my belt and mods that have come from both the past and the present. I was doing water injection back in 1980 and people were asking me "what the hell is that windshield washer sprayer doing on your air breather stud?". I just smiled and said its special. :)
    Thanks Matt!!!

      Thank you. After a year of being down and working 6 days a week, I finally heard her start for the first time on the new engine in my profile yesterday first crank. It is a very rewarding feeling. Today I get to tear the turbo back off due to a seeping freeze plug behind the water tube but I'm on vacation and plan on having that fixed by the end of the day today. Sure appreciate your comment and I'm here to help if you ever need anything. Marty
