    Soon to be added:




    The car will be run on an old school HKS Fcon piggy back system. This will allow control of fuel/spark/timing, need to source either a HKS GCC or Super AFR controller to complete my setup.
    Also grabbed an old HKS EVC 2 boost controller, all this will match my HKS turbo timer, some serious period correct mods haha.
