I'm the second owner. The first owner garaged the car in Seattle WA. The car was a CA emissions car and well maintained. One layer metallic paint and the US dealer turbo appliqué were properly maintained; As was the mechanics and interior. The first owner kept the car original.

Personal Notes

Still trying to get a consistent 12 psi of boost. However I have resolved an APC over boost issue, with a 3rd computer. The enrichment is installed but still needs to be verified. No intercooler planned, but considering BTM for the stock ignition, pending the enrichment. Also may get Spax front shocks. Still need to install the replacement airdam, but plan to get it painted first when I have the paint chips repaired. Needs the headliner redone still. But I have installed cheap carpet insulation and tweeters in the doors. I'm having a plywood deck built to replace the very heavy rear seat and hide a stealth 8" subwoofer. It's very street and trackable... But not to much track planned, as it's mostly original. I hope to build a 99 dedicated track car someday.
