finally got some more parts! my innovate LC-1 wideband controller finally came and is installed, so nice to know my air/fuel at 5000rpm and 15psi. also picked up a set of 17" svt cobra rims, only down side is now it desperately needs to be slammed.
on to the pictures

a/f gauge location is only temporary


this is what i see at night

the rims
