323 or Protege? I can never remember what the grilles look like on the various generations.

It'll look awesome once you ditch those wheels - yuck! - and cram enough boost into it to force the head studs to serve as impromptu hood props.

In reply to Hungary Bill:

Looking forward to hearing this as well. This one appears to be either sans engine, or just has really blown suspension.. Explain me which one ya got!

Well that will be easy since this has a real BPT swapped in.

I love it! How giant of a turbo will it have?

What are the chances there is any power directed towards the rear wheels?

Awesome. I've had two Tropic Emerald Green Protege DXs. Wonderful cars.

Pretty much zero. It'll also take only as much power as normal BP, but that's still going to be a REALLY fun car.

Hey Jav, you want the world's pimpiest suspension for that car? I have everything you can buy, and a whole bunch of stuff you can't.

Is it challenge priced Swank?

Probably not. For the price of a challenge car i might consider giving you the whole suspension, though. At that price i'd only be losing a couple grand.
