    Yes on cams, but need to figure out if I want to use an OTS Kelford or have a custom spec made ($ dependent). Same 6266 for now. That may change though..

    Are those the same pistons that SilvaPain used back in the day?

    For those that aren't aware already, the ms3 will be no longer. It's not smart to spend the money on fixing the body damage on a 246k mile chassis. So the engine, turbo and pu gears will be getting swapped over to an ms6 chassis I bought. And then the ms3 will get parted and sent to scrap

    Anyways, heres a little compilation vid of some pics from the day I bought it, through current. And a little dyno sheet history of the car over the years

    93 octane, hypnotic tuned, stock turbo, SU tmic, UR v1 catted DP, htp 3.5" intake

    I wish there was a cry react. I know the heart is going to live on but I'd probably actually cry if I were you. I know machines cant love us back but I get attached to certain ones. I'm sure you must feel somehow attached to it after that many miles on it, work in it, trips in it, etc.

    Excited for the ms6 project though!

    Oh, I definitely cried.

    The entire way from my house to the shop, knowing it was my last drive in the car. And then again when unmarrying the accessport,knowing I'd never fire up that car again.

    I'll probably cry again when it gets hauled off to get scrapped

    I still absolutely love the Gen1 body. Sleeper with just the right amount of flare. And the vertical tachometer. I hate watching rpms tip right instead of climb up.

    I wouldn't mind dropping a different powerplant into that chassis.

    Being able to pick up the 6 for $750 with a mint interior, transfer case, and transmission as well as full harness and radiator and all lines. Simple lol
