Any hints as to what the first few products will be? It looks like you got some decent feedback so I'm curious what you're going to start on.

1988 N/A SE model FC, dead stock and less than 85k on the clock. This one actually runs, so I don't fuck with it.

lol, it really is nothing to look at..... yet! But I'll get some pics up. Plans are to start with some basic subframe stiffening components then control arms and probably steering rack end links.

And... sad I know... it will not be rotary powered. Plans are for a 2jz swap.

LOL I know!!! It pains me to do it too!

But alas for what I am going to do I think it's the best option. A lot of HP for the money, plus between my buddy and I (the Pro-Am car I crew chief for) we have plenty of spare parts.

However, I refuse to have anything but a rotary in my 1st gen!

I would love to see some new good quality chassis components! Maybe a more affordable 4 point strut tower bar for the front, or a improved diff mount. Just some suggestions of stuff I would buy.

That's easy stuff I could knock out fast if I had the 13B-re to work with. If anyone is close to South FL and has the parts I will be happy to knock this one out and make a jig.

Or has a set of the "other" mounts they could lend me so I can improve on it. I don't even want to know the brand...

And I will do it for the cost of materials for them....
