    Yes, closed dif is a term a adopted from some of the older guys i work with, unless your used to it, it hits the ear weird. Hear something 3 or 400 times and your bound to start calling it that. But yes that was my question was open dif or LSD. I see you don't, sorry for the confusion. Wise choice to take the maintenance route first, so many people don't.

    So I’m waiting to order an all OEM timing belt kit. Then it should be able to start right up. Afterward, I will be flushing all fluids to refresh the performance of the brakes, engine and cooling system.

    The car looks great btw! Being a GST owner myself i was wondering if you have done a closed differential as i didn't see it in your mod list. I did one and its a completely different experience, corner acceleration and straight line acceleration. It took alot of wheel spin away at a dig.

      Do you mean limited slip? I haven’t done that yet, my transmission may be next on the list. She has sat for quite a while now, so I’m taking care of all maintenance to get back to like new condition.
