This is my 1987 Ls I am in the process of a three year build the engine is from an '88 XR7, all the work to the motor including the machining was done by eric's machine shop here in carmel, where I was fortunate enough to ba able to participate inthe actual machine process from cc'ing my heads to the port and polish. I am also in the process of ordering a transmission from performance automatic with titanium bands and a manual valve body.I have close to ten thousand dollars tied up in the build alone, and don't care how much more it costs, my first actual car was a grey 1987 ls with the 3.8, I loved that car until I got rear ended by a mitsu montero. This build is kind of a tribute to that car and to my brother who died in a car accident some years later he also loved the cougar in all of it's feral glory.

Future Plans:
I plan to buy the GTp Body kit, paint it a dark gunmetal or cahrcoal, with glass flake clear, finding wheels is proving a challenge, but if custom fab is the only way than so be it!
