thanks, thats what i hear...glad i got a hell of a deal on this car. i lost my 98 TA when i lost my job (either the car or house so car went) and found this one. traded my 92 bmw for it. granted i had to build the motor for it but i was already in the process of doing a motor for a 3rd gen swap.

yes it is a list of the mods. not sure yet, havent dyno'd it yet. the previous owners setup was very similar. small difference in cams but a big difference in the heads. so it needs to be tuned. it doesnt throw any codes yet. and isnt running to rich or lean.
