1990 hatch project


i thought I would start a thread over here in the "works in progress" section because it's more applicable. I had been over on the "gen 3" page. I did get some great suggestions and feed back over there. I hope this is ok.
Here's the story:
I picked this 1990 hatchback up off craigslist in early April. Didn't run and was partially tore apart. I've gutted the inside and have the engine and trans ready to be pulled. Just need to rent a hoist. The car is from California and is absolutely rust free! It has 4 or so little dings, glass is all good.
The plan is to do a 5efe and turbo it. but I am keeping my options open. I'm shooting for a goal of 200 hp. Full suspension upgrade, brake upgrade, wheels and tires, etc etc etc. I figure it's going to take me a couple of years to do it right and I want to do it right. Any input anyone wants to throw out there will be appreciated. I'll post picture soon, I took a bunch last night.
It seems like the gen 3s don't have as strong a following or are as desirable to modify, but I'm looking forward to this challenge. Thanks.

Just picked up a 1992 paseo for $650.
140,000 miles, runs great. Seats and interior are really nice.
Minnesota rust. Bought it from an 84 year old guy, he had it for the last 19 years. It's going into my hatch project.

Well tell me what you think of this alf.

pull the 5efe and build in some more power.
I think the 1st gen paseo had the stronger internals.
Turbo!
Exhaust
Injectors
Swap over seats, trunk latch popper, gas tank latch popper, sway bar, mirrors if they will work,? I think the brakes are better too,? Gauge cluster?
255 fuel pump
Shocks and struts or coilovers
Rear sway bar
Any ideas?
Suggestions?

Exhaust

Injectors

Swap over:
seats <= Bracket fabrication required
trunk latch popper <= Plug & Play
gas tank latch popper <= Plug & Play (may require new gas door)
sway bar <= Plug & Play (Require chassis drilling for brackets)
mirrors if they will work? <= More than likely will NOT fit
I think the brakes are better too? <= Plug & Play
Gauge cluster <= Will NOT work

255 fuel pump

Shocks and struts or coilovers

Rear sway bar

Any ideas? Suggestions?


When you say, "build more power".... It all depends on how

much MORE POWER you wanna build and your money

situation....? :naughty:
