Hi Guys, Thought I should start a thread. I don't have the car yet, but I am just documenting ideas/links so I am ready when I do get it.
This is the planned colour:
This is the car as it sits now:
Wheels: At this stage looking at 15" Steelies from a 740 so I can hopefully run some larger brakes (want to run VT Calipers)
Tossing up lots of options, but currently leaning towards Megasquirt Build it yourself Kit.
I Want to Keep the Carb Look (for stealth), so I am looking at using the following bits and pieces:
-TBI/CPI System for an EA Ford Falcon
- GM Coil Packs
- LC-1 Wideband Sensor
- GM IAT Sensor
-GM Coolant Temp Sensor
- TPS - Unknown (Open to Suggestions on what works)
- CAS - Maybe DSM CAS http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=224740
Links for my own reference
Gearbox: Open to suggestions here, Its got a 3 Speed auto atm, I'd like something that has a good cruising ratio. I know Supra Gearboxes Fit (Manual Conversion), but not sure if there's another Auto option that is 4 Speed.
Black Interior - Cloth Seats and Vinyl Trims + Dash. A Friend of mine has access to a CNC to cut some custom Door Trims + Console items for me.
-Stainless/Billet Switchgear (Similar to these: http://bluewiremotorsport.com/collections/billet-buttons
-Sound deadening / rust proofing in doors
Wiring: Want to start fresh with this, looking at new harnesses I have seen online:

New Shocks: Recommendations on Brand would be good.
Bushes: Recommendations ?
