F Street Prepared SCCA Solo (autox) Stock 2.0 engine with header, dual DCOE webers, pertronix ignition, electric fuel pump, aluminum flywheel, limited slip, strut brace, front camber plates, ugraded brake balance, Green brake pads, braded lines, poly bushings, uprated custom rear lateral supports, Spax shocks, HD front swaybar, no rear swaybar, 14x8 diamond wheels front with hoosiers 225/50/14, 15x8 rear wheels with 245/50/15 hoosiers, and a friggin blast to drive! (probably getting about 115 hp and it weighs in at 2260lbs w/o driver)
The TR7 has a very wide track and is great for autox (remember this engine is the same as the Saab 900).
Future mods include electric water pump, aluminum crank pully, more tuning on the webers, and constantly improving driving skills.
Our greatest satisfaction is beating newer cars with our old (and some say ugly) technology. Bought the car for $1k and have about $6k into it (not including tires or paint-I own a body shop). We run against Mazda 3,s civics, BMW2002 commonly in our region (SFR). Very few 100% English cars out there these days.
