    So I guess I'm gonna do another build thread for my new car since I like it so much lol. Well here it is 97 gt got in in a trade for my old fox with 1200 on my end so I said screw it I'll take it

    Sooo it's a 97 248a car 5 speed pretty much stock when I got it all that was done was a ram clutch, Hurst short throw, shaved rear bumper, a muffler delete and he cut the stock springs. Still had all the cats on it!! Love finding stock cars. The only issue with the car is the left side of the cluster doesnt work. So first things first put some real springs on it and of course the struts are shot. After the real springs were installed found a o/r x pipe and ordered some pypes m80s for it. Muffler ended up not being near as loud as I wanted with the stock flow tubes so was pretty disappointed about that

    So trying to figure out what wrong with the cluster pulled it out and found a messed up wire on the back

    So got a cluster from a friend hoping it would fix no luck. Found out when you fill it up the gauges go to half way and stays there for a like 75 miles then it goes down. So ordered a new sending unit to replace the old one and hopefully fix the problem all together

    Great work so far man! The cobra wheels look perfect, I wish I could have found a set of those new edge seats in that good of condition before I replaced mine with the old tweed color. Keep us posted on the progress

    Haha yea was 40 bucks and one of the resistors was broke on the back so he said I'll give it to you for 20 so I swapped the gauges in my working gt cluster and it's good to go now

    The coolant sensor is messed up I think it always chills there and the gas gauge don't work either. I posted in the beginning the left side of the cluster don't work lol
