LT1 your car looks so good with the stock lines... Absolutely superb... But I like myself some rotary whine more the. The V8. Burble....

Looks so killer though!!! Huge props for that....


And supernaut only thing I would do is add a little subtle touch of angry somewhere on the car, exterior wise.... But still looks amazing...


Both are awesome cars, but I'm leaning towards dorito power :P

Thanks man. I'd love to add more to the exterior and interior but wanted that part of the car to be a replica :(. I've got to stay true to my original goals. I'll be able to have a little more fun with my other LS2 FD haaaa.

Wassup T! It was awesome meeting you at deals man.

You could go with OEM... even the OEM side skirts would give it a little bit of extra flare that I think it could use...

but thats my opinion, and its your car... it looks awesome, I just like it when they have a little dash or angry, to go with the smooth seductive lines...
(Yes i'm talking about the FD this time...)

I love my 383 LT-1... probably will leave that engine alone, it does great for the mountains... LT-1 FDs aren't as common as the LSx ones...

Arg I forgot to add stuff! Spirit R engine bay tag, replica foot rest and R magic oil cooler ducts! I'm sure I'm missing other stuff anyway haha.

Yeah I thougt about doing this at the time. Ditching the front mud guards and going Mazda skirts but it looked to different from what I wanted the car to be. Those skirts are really freaking nice.

I went with the LT1 powered FD, but the Super you have a clean car man.

Thank you good sir. I have alot of people to thank for it and certainly couldn't do it without the resources of the community. Importing Spirit R or even rare JDM parts is super hard. Finding people with the skills to replicate the parts I couldn't put on the car (after I bought them :( ) was even harder.

honestly... did we ever think that a piston-FD would ever beat a rotary FD on a rotary car forum?

Supernaut

Waaaaaah? Even though there are some people who hate on v8 FDs I think they are in the minority. There are tons of people here who are pro swappers and hate rotary as well.
