    Background:
    Bought the car from a friend who drove the car 2-300 miles after the 6 bolt swap. I helped with the majority of the mods after the swap. The car sat in his garage for roughly 10 years. My friend recently found the receipts for the engine build and I edited the mods section. I'm slowly fixing minor issues that arise after the car sat for soo long. I'm hoping to "resurrect" the car to the 400+ hp goals that we set for it a decade ago. Engine management and all the sensors needed to achieve that are things I'm focused on now. After thatI'll be working towards getting the fuel delivery upgrades.
