With Holley Street Avenger carburetor, and stainless steel KOOKS headers, an estimated horsepower rating of 450 is conservative. The hood was modified with with a cowl intake with a K&N filter installed, as well as an aluminum radiator and electric FlexLite fans.

From an Enthusiast - Durham, North Carolina

With complete documentation of work performed, and tuning notes; built with Autocross in mind, this car is fast, turns like it's on rails, and stops like it hit a wall; paint and chrome overall are excellent.

Overall wonderful condition; new window seals and gaskets are included but not installed; headlights have been rebuilt; window regulators and door latches replaced; many parts replaced, or upgraded; front bumper with some cracking to paint; no apparent concerns.
