Love it! Hop over to www.merkursport.com for even more shenanigans!


Only thing I think would improve it, is to space the ponies in the rear out about 15mm and add some fender flares. Maybe some lower profile tires as well. Looks great!

thanks. I spent several hours prepping and painting them lol. I've only drove this thing on 3 pistons for like 10 Mins. I can't wait to get it done and be boosting again. Cars totally debadged and black out with tinted windows and black heated leather seats. Love it! [/code]

I'm wondering if anyone here has got there ecu chipped from some last name potter. His name is on the ecu and wasn't wondering more about my program or chipp to see the fuel curve. The guy I got it off messed up a ring and it ripped out of the top of piston. I don't want that happening lol. Any suggestions on a tune. I know I need bigger injectors and jus wanna make sure she runs good and hard. But safe

Ian does the internal re-pinning of those so they are plug and play with the Merkur harness. No custom tune, just some wiring so it works.


As for larger injectors and a tune, check out going with MegaSquirt:

Yeah. that's the sticker that Ian puts on his re-pinned ECU's. It doesn't necessarily mean it's an LA, but definitely a TBird ECU.

You can see the sticker here:

Nice build up! One question tho....why is everything painted except the head? This is like the 4th 2.3t build up I have seen that did that.
