There has not been much done in the performance department of this car yet. So far I have been rolling ideas around in my head about what I would eventually like to do and currently I am thinking about building a good street-able stroker motor and swapping in a Kiesler TKO-600 transmission. The bulk of the work I have put into the car so far has been aesthetic. It originally had a saddle brown interior that was in pretty bad shape. I tore it out completely and laid down dyna-mat and heat insulation to everything. I then put all new black carpet and trim pieces in with silver and red accents and white gauges. I replaced the factory seats with Fiero seats and covers from MrMikes Fiero. I installed a custom audio system which includes 4x6's in the dash, 2 1/2's in the headrest, and an 8" sub in the jack compartment. I plan on adding some 6x9's in the rear and swapping the 8" sub for a 10". I added a head unit with a screen and a reverse camera as well. I have done some mild suspension and brake work to this car as well. My goal is to have a good foundation in place before I replace the drivetrain and have something that looks nice in the meantime. Here is a list of all of the modifications I have made so far.
17x8 Torq Thrust II's, 255/50Z-R17 Riken Raptors, VB&P SS sleeved / o-ring piston calipers, drilled and slotted rotors, SS braided brake lines, 550lb coils up front, VB&P 360lb composite rear spring, KYB GR-2 shocks, TH350 rebuilt w/ shift kit, L48 rebuilt with mild cam, MSD HEI distributor and coil, jetted Q-jet, stainless side exhaust w/ STS baffles, Motion style gas filler, MSD HEI distributor and coil, and K&N air filter
