A little history on the car. The original motor blew so they replaced it with a jdm long block. They couldn't get it to to start because of a different cas. I rewired the cas and it fired right up. Now to the problem. I spoted a leak and traced it to a weird location, one of the injector rail bolts was leaking oil! Doh

    So pulled the head off and sent it out. With the head off I then proceded to check out the rest of the engine bay. Found some missing bolts and a stock clutch. So I then decided not to risk it and pulled every thing out of the engine bay and go over it and paint the engine bay.

    When I got the the car it had 4 spares on it . well it made it a pain to load on the trailer because they were the wrong size. so to get it off the trailer I had to put these on for the time being till my other wheels made it in.

    I picked these up for the gst ,used but brand new never mounted for 400 for the set, 18x8 3/4 with a 20 offset.

    Test fire went well this past weekend. Had a oil leak at the turbo drain , fixed that. Have to set biss and put the sheet metal back on and talon sides. Have to get it to the shop for inspection, alignment, and recharge the a/c. Then once tagged I can go thru the tunning processes.
