A few months back I found a pretty mint granny spec TF at a local wreckers. There was only one minor, slightly major problem with it; it had been hit in the rear end and written off.

So, naturally, I did what any sane Gemini owner would do and walked away from it - there's no point buying a 30 year old written off car that's completely standard.

Hah, like f*#k. There's no such thing as a 'sane' Gemini owner.

And then primer, yadda yadda. Next up was to fix the 'standard' part.

So with that sorted, it's time to make it start to look alright. I was originally going to go with the standard metallic green, but the bank account didn't agree with me on that front, so white it is!

More will happen. I may take photos. We'll see.

It's nothing fancy, really. Just a G180Z with a lightly ported head, late model TF rodeo injectors (330ish cc,) ebay spec 2871, turbogemini.com T2 SS manifold, delco '808 ECM, and all 2.5" stainless piping. I've got a better head for it here, but I can't afford bigger injectors at this point so I'm going to keep the power output a bit low so I don't max these out.

I'm hoping to get the car rego'd early next week, then it's time for a bit of road tuning, then it's off to the dyno!

I got it rego'd today, had a bit of a drive. Everything works, now just to put the interior back together and to tune!
