I finally have another Mitsubishi...yes this is my old stealth

Well I bought it back last weekend.

After selling it roughly 12 years ago I bought it back from the guy I sold it to. It came complete with everything I sold with it.

So why?

The Corvette has hit the point to where I don't want to go much further and ruin it's street car"ness"

I feel like I have unfinished business with this platform.

The plan?

Assess parts conditions and start to acquire parts end of 2021. I need to build my shop this summer first before I tear it apart. Right now the car is loaded up with parts that I sold with it. I'll probably start with the PTE 76mm GTS single that came with it.

The parts?

76mm single to start, bigger later once I shake out the bugs (I expect the turbo to get me into the 9's)
E85/98 fuel to start
6g72 based engine
AWD Auto transmission
Proper suspension/drivetrain/tires
Keep the chassis as light as possible (for those that don't know this has a 8.5 second NHRA certified cage in it).

The goal?
Get kicked out as the cage isn't certified enough. I want to put this car well into the 8's, maybe better as time progresses. No rush but there isn't constraints on this car.

Do it right, do it proper, don't be a cheap ass. This is the new money pit.

Anyone need any 3s parts? I've got a few parts transmissions and a complete one, some stock engine parts, transfer case stuff that I know I won't be using.
