I like you guys better than some of the other forums I've been on,.. so I guess you guys need to know what my cars looks like

first off,.. this is the "dirty bird"

project I've been working on for my girlfriend and was a test subject to an engine swap I'm now definitely going to do in my pride and joy

91 Pontiac Sunbird SE

2.0 sohc turbo

don't mind the smoke,.. that was the TGP (turbo grand prix) turbo installed which I finally blew all the seals on it that night at the drag strip



And yes,.. it is multi coloured
I was repairing rust and shaving the door mouldings off. I started with the gray primer and ran out,.. then the girlfriend bought me black primer



This is me and my Girlfriend



Aside from my kids,.. this is my pride and joy

Before pics,.. when I first got it 3 years ago

92 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24

One of the local car shows this year I had some decals temporarily put on (they aren't there now - I added them to catch peoples attention and bring them to our booth, which worked wonderfully)



The engine that I killed :D, which I wanna take out and install the 2.0 8v sohc turbo




And the last couple good pics before my baby was put into the garage

Rolling in the last car show I showed in

I'm not sure what this one is putting out

My 92 with a previous outdated version of the chip put down 134hp @ the wheels and ran 1 second slower than the 91 with the different turbo at the track

so I can only guess maybe 140-145ish hp @ the wheels?
