    Thank you and depends on what you are looking for. Honestly, not much left that is stock.

    This makes me laugh, people will ask what's done to it and I'm just like honestly, it's easier to tell you whats not been done.. The seats, carpet, calipers, 2 wheels and the paint are still OEM lol

    I'm basically wanting to return this car closer to stock. (It's not far from that anyways) So I need a stock air box, altenator, and water pump pulleys. This car had the underdrive pulleys and I'm taking them off. I'm not sure about the crank pulley. It looks like the balancer just bolts to the outside of that. And I was going to ask about your trans. I assume you had a 3650 in it. I think mine is actually a T45 but I was hoping the 3650 would work too.

    My body panels, interior panels, dash, and rear seats are stock. Lol

    Everything else, not so much. I have not had the parts he is looking for since 2007.

    I could be wrong, but I think there were some 99 GTs with the T45.

    Ordered the Timing Components, Head Change Kit, new water pump, and a few extras to that I researched as helping with the timing component differences in using the Teksid Block in a 2V setup.

    Got the throttle and cruise cables from a Cobra hooked up. Also adjusted the latch to properly close and latch the Cervini Hood.

    Saw Stiffler, but not his mom, and picked up my T56 mount along with new hardware for my K Member, A Arms, and rear control arms.

    Speaking of A Arms, my order of A Arms from BMR showed up yesterday. They are quite the piece.

    Got the rear end dropped off at the fabricator. They are making certain it is straight, welding the tubes, removing the quad shock mount, and installing and machining Strange Billet Caps. I believe I am also going to add a Swarr Bar or CHE Brace to it.

    Looking to sell my J&M Upper and Lower Control Arms and I stead going to buy some BMR Adjustable Control Arms. So if anyone wants a deal on some brand new Control Arms, hit me up.

    Also bought a set of Cobra R Brembos. I currently have a stock set of 13” Cobra fronts.

    Things are getting warmed up with the build. The rear end is at the fabricator which means it is going to be time to start putting the car back together.

    I am ditching the 2 piston 13” front brake setup that I put on the car back in 2011 as an upgrade in favor of 13” 4 piston Cobra R Brembos. I am also stepping up from the stock GT rear brakes to 11.65” Cobra rear Kit.

    I also knew that with the 2.3 TVS and power it makes the question would not be if but when would the 10 spline input shaft tap out. So I am upgrading to a 26 spline input shaft and steel TOB retainer.

    The next question was what clutch and Flywheel? After researching I decided on the McLeod RXT Twin Disk clutch good for 1000hp and their matching Aluminum Flywheel.

    Shifting duties fall to a MGW with their standard handle.

    I hope this car will be as stout as I am trying to build it.

    Forgot to add pictures of the Tork Tech Kit. I will me making some modifications and personal touches to the kit. Should be only the third person with a 2.3 TVS. Going to paint the pulley bridge. The Steeda HD Tensioner should fit but need to take some measurements to make certain. Also, need to figure out a modification to clean up the coolant crossover.
