    Did this really need its own new thread? Couldn’t you have just updated the thread you started about the car?? 

    no and yes.

    I paid $7,500 for the 850R. The midwest is a p80 desert, especially for R's. 

    Did you really need to post that here?  You could have easily put that in my previous post.  ;)

  2. Still very much in transition but here is where I am currently.  Completed a LENGTHY stage 0.  This car came to me as a time capsule, and not all in a good way.  Original plugs, wires cap and rotor.  Wires were dated 1996.  TME springs looked good but were very tired so I swapped them out with Eibach.  Installed C70 subframe and all the braces, swapped out the headlights and corners for C70 jewels.  Decided to sell the Nebulas and go with 17" wheels and used the money I made by selling the two BBK's on....you guessed it a BBK.    Still have to install the rears.  The only issue I am currently having is tracing down the "large evap leak".  Got the smell of gas in the back and the stained tank but when I pulled the top hose it was fine.  Just have to keep on it until I track it down.

    Oh and George I think you were right about the tune.  Its pretty peppy.  I wish I knew someone that had Ostrich and could copy the tune adding rear o2 delete and sas delete.  If you know anyone please hook me up.

  3. TME lowering springs from the IPD project S70 in the pics. These are the lowest springs I have ever owned. They tucked the rear and there was no finger gap in the fronts. I dont know if IPD had these specially made because the car was going to be in a magazine but they look incredible. Picture is a front spring side by side with an Eibach front spring. If they need to be shipped that will be extra.
