Started on Dec. 11 by Indy-Guy
TR7, with a performace built Buick 3.8L (231) V6 swapped in place of the stock 4 banger. It's mated to a 5-speed GM transmission (T-5). Total suspension rebuild with Polyurethane bushings, springs, KONI performance shocks and struts, etc. Awesome Compomotive wheels & BF Goodrich tires.
