My 765 (purchased from Dale)
 
So here it is, I picked up this 760 from Dale a few weeks back to replace my 945 that got torched. There's a vid here that explains the progress in the first day (saves me from typing it out)

1986 765ti
B23E with B23FT pistons
405 head
A-cam
42/48 T-3
3" open pipe
Browntops
K&N cone filter
13psi
Stock AW
940 locker rear end with G80 mod done
cut 1.5 coils from front, rear coming soon
850 front bumper - in progress
.60 Ford T3 compressor - in progress
Black leather seats inside a red interior.


On to some pictures!

When I first got back to Edmonton with it, went parking lot drifting, came SUPER close to a curb, stopped the car just in time:

Sittin' low, needs some plastic mending/mangling/grafting for the bumper to fit right. Gonna go out and work on it now. Probably going to get new corner lamps and turn signals.

I probably can't make it down. On the weekend of the 27th-29th, Erik wants to get a mega-thrash going on at his place, to get the 245 goin'. I'm gonna try and get the 90+ all ported up tonight and installed with the 60 trim ford compressor on my turbo. I'll wait on the holset for now.
