    Just picked up a really ruff 98 GST Spider. The interior has no carpet and all the interior panels seem to have been taken off and are loose or missing fasteners. Seems that the top was left open at some point. Will be a complete restoration. It has Megan coilovers and a front mount Intercooler that appears to be rigged in. Lots of hoses capped and or screws inserted in them. Will post more pictures once I get home. The clutch went out 30 minutes from home. In 5th gear and the rpms would just go up with no acceleration.

    I am usually a starion guy. I have had 8 of those and know them well. Hope to meet some of you here and possible meets.

    My daily is a mini cooper turbo. Thus far just intake, intercooler, upgraded turbo. Waiting for exhaust to get a tune. Fun little car.

    Welcome to the site! Overall the car looks straight, that bypass valve port looks interesting, almost like it's plumbed straight into the upper intercooler pipe.
    Either way I look forward to updates!
