hey SN95 forum members,

so ive never posted much on the forum, but would like to be on it more often so heres some pics of the Stealth Mare.
im the second owner and got her bone stock. the car had 210k miles when i got it and i bought her for $1500. its 97 gt with stock motor with plans for a teksid build to come with hopes of 320/350rwhp and similar torque numbers. i am building the car for autocross and maybe in the future it will be road raced. if the car lasts long enough to complete my vision for it the car will be fully built with a griggs gr40 system, coyote engine and a tremec 6 speed transmission.

on to the car!

Put on my steeda cc plates the other day. So theres about a two finger gap, my fingers at least so maybe 1inch inch and a half, between the fender and top of my tires. I want to go lower, and the fiance doesn't want that, but what would be a good coil over set up? Want to tubular the whole front (a arms and k member)
