There used to be a large list of what I would like to do to this car, I do however imagine that I will keep this as my daily and get a RWD project car. The issue is that this car is front wheel drive, there is no point in trying to make too much power. I will likely set the car to around 8 psi of boost and leave it there. There is however the possibility of me machining some pistons, not that I want to make more power, I just want a stronger engine. The clutch is my main obsticle, I just can't justify the money on this particular car.
