    Background:
    Purchased the GST from a local guy, had proof of a built motor, a mediocre engine bay repair, and a rats nest electrical system. Which I didn't know any better to avoid at the time, yet here we are.

    Moved forwards dealing with small issues, ran into a huge hiccup when the CAS was flipped 180 out by a friend that was "helping" me fix the misc oil leaks. Took longer than I'd like to admit to diagnose the no start issue.

    CAS was not working, did not cause CEL for months, ended up resorting to a shop to sort out my electrical issues, sorted them with hackjob fixes, tuned the car to mediocre AFR's made 323 WHP, was happy for the afternoon the transmission lasted. ( Which I suspect was drained by them. ) I had a spare transmission and fluid in the hatch in the event it did fail, truck and trailer were at the shop when I picked up my vehicle, somehow made the 2 hour drive home before losing 3-5th. $1,200 down the drain, ( Was quoted $800 for everything, everything wasn't even completed, total sh**show. )

    Fast forward about a year, PLDSM temporarily had the car in his hands, and did amazing body work to the engine bay, and helped me get this to where I wanted it. All credit for the bay paint, and rust repair goes to him.

      Still pretty involved with it. Going to be picking it back up soon. Have strongly realized I need a DSM in my life.
