Icon6 ssmrico's 1991 ef 600hp turbo progress build

1991 4 Door EF sedan

the pink is for memory of my aunt that passed away from breast cancer me and my father had built the car in her memory, now the blue and pink are for both of them since he passes away of colon cancer. his goal was always for the car to go low 10s or a high 9 so that's where I'm heading with the car and build.


car sits at 440hp right now. made 567 before then ran out of fuel.

its going to TURBO ELEMENTS here in a week or so for a new coolant reservoir, hood lashes, dual pump install , front bumper bracket so it don't sag, new top mount manifold and hood or side exits and solid mounts inserts.

Sweet ride, I bought those cams years ago while stacking up parts for my build. Can't wait to see what they do for you.

yes sir, time to get it where it should of been long ago. really thinking about some new tails so the outside looks nice too but they are 300 but new and hard to come by so im thinking about it hard, I want to make sure I have all I need for the motor and maintenance before I spend on other things.
