Back On the Road!

Happy Happy Holiday Season!

As an early gift to myself, I got my REPU registered! It looks like it hasn't been on the road since 1993... but with some TLC and a few grand, I give you this:

There are 23 pics from today:

This is a list of what I've done: (incomplete?)

* TurboII swap, Jspec, 1990
* TurboII Tranny
* Haltech E6k
* 2 Pusher Fans
* One Peice Drive Shaft
* 17" 6 Spoke Rims with 235/45 series tires
* RePainted to white, minor body work, dings and dents
* Spray On Bed Liner
* LED Tail Lights
* German Hella(?) Crystal Headlights
* "ROTARY POWER" Stickers from Vintage Rotary Decals

Left todo:
* Tune the Haltech, engine
* Interior Door Panels
* Carpet
* Headliner
* Radio
* Dash
* Gauges
* Air/Water Intercooler
* Lower Valance


The best way to predict the future is to invent it!

Oh happiness is

The truck looks good Dan.
I really like the shot of the laptop hooked to the Haltech.
I guess as well as perfomance and gas milage this Haltech my have the ability to map you a "pulling" fuel curve?
I can only imagine not having to listen to the 4 barrel suck air every time I drive my truck.
Whats up with the rear LED lights? Where did you get them? How much were they?

Wow, that looks really nice!!! Maybe in a year after my rx7 is paid off I will finally be able to put some money into the body/interior of mine. I would love for it to look that clean! I guess the other option is to learn some body working skills over the winter, hmmm...

I was already decided on going with a Weber and Turbo but looking at the Haltech makes it very tempting.. Damn.. How does it run right now that it isn't tuned?

Bodyworking skills are good to know.. I am in the class at school this semester and I really like it.. You learn all the right tools to use for a job.. and the proper technique too.. I may just be able to rivitalize my valance..

NICE! it's always nice when there is a new skin on an old body. white is cool too...other than that, the blue is another nice color...I have yellow which I am not fond of on the truck, but on the regular cars it is cool. i bet the bed was a lot of sanding! I have yet to allocate a block of time to do some of that. Keep on truckin...
ROTARY POWER!!! V8 is a great juice for consumption.

looks great!!!!!! You'll have to let me know if those 2 pusher fans are enough to keep your turbo motor cool. I was thinking of 2 pushers also and eventually i'll be supercharged. Is that stock T2 intercooler even doing anything without ventilation??
