Hey all, been kicking around for a few years and never really introduced myself or my car. This is what I was working on, you probably all know it.
Decided to scrap that plan and start on a more basic/subtle hatch. Bought a 03 Xls a few weeks ago and finially got a chance to do some work on it.
Stripped out all the interior in preparation for dry ice to remove sound deadening, clean up all the wiring and give the inside a coat of red to tidy it up a bit.
Short term plans are to drop the motor and running gear from the coupe (6 bolt 63t with gsr box and eco running gear) into the Satria and get it working. There has been ongoing wiring problems with the coupe ever since I bought it. Exterior wise I will keep it as is with maybe a set of wider plain looking 15s or 16s. Whole reason i bought it was because of the paint being rooted, no-one (including the police hopefully) will look twice and i will get left alone, unlike getting hammered in the coupe.
Long term plans are to finially install the AWD which has been sitting in the shed for a year. Maybe a set of cams to unlock some more ponies and maybe even a more user friendly ECU. Currently it runs a microtech MT8 which is a bit out dated now.
