As a few of you may remember, my TC was side swiped into a median last February. I spent hundreds of hours researching what parts were broken/damaged and found it to be easier and cheaper to just replace the entire rear end. I have actually found a 88 Turbo Coupe rear end in my town and I am planning on picking it up later this week and hope to have everything installed and working by the end of the month (I work full time as well as attending Community College so I don't have much free time). Since the accident I have been purchasing many of the parts that I plan on installing once she is up and running again. Just got a set of White (wanted to be different) 16x7 Rota Slipstreams, Stinger Single exit 3" Full exhaust, Moog CC821 Lowering springs for the rear and BMR SP-028 lowering springs for the front. Thank you to I believe his name is Kusch, for helping me out with what springs to buy to help lower mine. I also grabbed a set of Federal Evolution ST1s in 215/45r16 that I will have put on my new wheels. Once she is up and running I also plan on purchasing a FMIC kit with a manual boost controller from Stinger and that will probably be the only "performance" mod that I will do for the time being, as I plan on dailying my TC. I'll make sure to upload some pics of the car once everything is installed and i'm sure i'll be back to ask for some help later on!

Ryan, Glad to hear your ride is getting back together soon, those Rota wheels remind me of the Saleen SC styles which they make for our cars, which I really like. Get us some in progress pics to see the work being done as that is a big project.
