Current to do list--

 

-Figure out battery draw/drain issue

-Figure out throttle positions sensor issue and upload proper tuning Map

-Exhaust work - header back (was hoping to get my spare rear crossmember exhaust opened and adjustable... but I dont think thats gonna happen... Ill just go full 2.5" or full 3" and have then do a smaller pipe through the x-member and replace it down the road)

-Get a trans tunnel cover fabbed and welded

-Fill or plug the random holes in the floor and firewall

-Figure out whats needed to pass MA saftey inspection

-New tires- these Falkens are getting old and beat... time for something new and sticky

 

 

Eventually-

-Redo motor mounts

-Better trans mount

-Adjustable LCAs, TC rods,  ties rods --- possibly T3 GTX2s

-Redo steering - all bushings etc --- possibly rebuilt box

-Race seats --- Corbeau likely 

-New wheels --- 13x7 race wheels --- possibly 15x7ish Rota Grids for daily use

-Rear Coilovers

 

 

... Im sure there is more

 

 

Also getting the itch to get a 2nd 510... should have done this while I was in Cali... but year couldnt afford it. This is probably 2 years out pending on buying a house (2+ car garage required)

Everett just outside of Boston - Was just out your way- there is a 4 door shell for sale... but its pretty stripped and beat up. Went to check it out. Considered grabbing it and parting it, keeping the x-members and rear end.. but cant justify it right now -- https://worcester.cr...435080805.html

Yea not too far away- Fairfield. Although I typically end up running down 84 and then 8.
