Figured I would toss up some pics of my '88 Starion. It's been a battle royale with this car to make it nice, here's some of the highlights.

4G54:
8:1 Wiseco forged pistons - 20 over
Non MCA-Jet head.
Balance shafts removed
Reciprocating assembly balanced
2.5 turbo back Magnaflow exhaust
14G Turbocharger
1G MAS
355 LPH fuel pump
Recurved distributor
Stage 4 6 puck clutch
15 pound flywheel


Rest of car:
Palermo Gray Metallic
Black velour '86 interior
Sunroof
Swapped to digital dash from '87 Technica
Polished wheels
Reproduction Starion GSR-VR decals
Premier Bluetooth stereo

How about some pics?

I never knew beige could look this good! Sweet car; I'm oddly drawn to that colour.

Clean!
Don't know why, but seeing the digital dash and 88mph, my mind automatically wants me to ask if you plan on going back to the future? :mrgreen:

Shaun, you're right... 83 Starions are limited to 85 MPH... LOL...

The later Technica dashes would go up to 155 MPH according to the FSM.

We actually tossed a function generator on the speedometer input and got Ulrich's instrument panel to max out at 158.

Awesome sauce. Wonder why the factory stated 155 then, maybe the speed sensor's resolution is maxed out at that point.
