Welcome to the site. You could do some pretty sweet stuff with that car. Any specific plans?

I see you got rid of the TRX wheels, looks like a nice starting point, is it an auto or a stick, if it is a stick, 4 or 5 speed?

straight pipes do not have the same scavanging ability as a H or X pipe. Your fuel pump is located on the passenger side where the 86-93 muffler would be, so you will have to relocate it, and you will need an 86-93 tranny crossmember for duel exhaust. Before giving you too much advise, what state do you live in?

Welcome. I know the environmental laws here in Texas are getting crazy. Farting is now by EPA permit only. I would check out the laws before you begin to modify too much of anything. Unless you go all the way and build a strict track car. That is what I did.
