Your Projects: LS-Swapping With a Cause

By Ed Higginbotham
Jul 20, 2018 | Mitsubishi

Most V8 swaps are motivated by a desire for speed and power. That may be the case here, too, but the main driving force behind this build is honor. The previous owner of this 1988 Mitsubishi Starion was planning a V8 swap, but was stopped by a freak accident that resulted in some brain damage. Luckily he had a friend—forum member Mikiedriftsjunk—who wanted to take on the project for him. The build has been a long time coming and features some pretty trick fabrication, but it’s in the final stages and now runs and drives with the help of Chevy LS1 V8 power.

Ahhh ok I missed that.  I was thinking that the rest of the story was going to be a more detailed writeup by the GRM staff.  I was wanting to know what happened to the car and his friend and I am searching all over the rest of the story link and nothing.  I keep getting "rick rolled" by that dam rest of the story link.  Just not going to use it any more.  Kind of, sort of irritating in a way.
