I guess I'll finally make a thread for the build up of RedTwilight ZERO. My 1996 laser red Cobra. I purchased it used back in Sept. 1999 with approx. 47,000 miles on the odometer. This was my first manual car, but I have been driving tractors and four wheelers since I was little. So it didn't take me long to get used to it. It was completely stock except for the intake air silencer removed and a K&N conical filter. I drove it this way until Feb. or March when I couldn't stand it any longer. It was too quiet. Something had to be done. So I ordered up a 2 1/2" BBK off road H-pipe and 2 1/2" MAC Flowpath cat back. The difference and sound was outstanding and just what it needed. I drove it like this for quite a while. Daily driven, cruising, racing, and even car shows. All the things one would want to do in such a vehicle. I have been through more clutches than I care to count, and even obliterated 3rd in the original T-45. So with that happening came it's first big change. The almighty and revered T-56 6 speed transmission! I said I could either spend $1000.00 to rebuild the T-45 or put that $1000,00 towards acquiring the 6 speed. And the later is exactly what I did. So after a call to D&D Performance a T-56 with aluminum drive shaft was on the way. At the same time I also upgraded to an 11" clutch. And this is pretty much the way it has stayed while slowly acquiring parts for paint and body, suspension and other items. It currently has well over 200,000 miles and several dents from daily driven duties and deer impacts.
