    Well, despite that some people aren't huge fans of the year I got the car. I appreciate the advice from everyone. I like hearing both sides of things. The car ran great when I test drove it, no idle issues and it seemed to have plenty of power to me, it felt very strong getting up to 80 on the highway. It was very clean, the owner ordered it from Toyota so it never even sat at a dealership (she had the papers to prove it) and everything on the car is stock. The mud flaps were taken off of the rear wheels is the only thing I saw. Thanks for the advice everyone for real.

    Ironically, in the early days of turbocharging with piggyback systems, the 82's were sought after because the electronics are easier to piggyback and the rearend gearing is better for turbocharging.

    In my Sig? those are 17" Square G6 Wheels. Here is a pic test fit on the L-type, but they aren't really enough positive offset for it (lots of poke in the front and rubbing).
