    Background:
    Bought bone stock 11 years ago (2009) in Florida and simply added the 3" turbo-back exhaust, 1G bov and K&N. Ran great for 3 years till it sprung a bad oil leak. I worked two jobs at that time and had no time to work on the car but wasn't gonna sell (regretted selling past DSMs), so she has sat garaged for the past 8 years.
    Now (2020) I am finally going to get her back on the road. I have a line on a good condition FP Big 28 that I'm going to toss on, plus go over all the maintenance. All hoses (coolant, oil, vacuum) will be replaced and anything else that crops up. I assume and fully expect things to come up since she's been sitting untouched for 8 years.
    After she's back on the road I will get ECM Link and switch to speed density and E85 with supporting fuel mods, then eventually a 20G, forged internals, cams and head work.
