Thanks! The car really doesn’t need much. Maybe a updated stereo. Looking at a new head unit. What are everyone's thoughts on new stereo setups? I really like this Alpine unit- car does not have pcm

You may be stoked now, but if you want to be "super" stoked; get a center muffler bypass and enjoy the sounds of your Mezger engine.

When I look at GT's the thing that steers me away from being interested is an aftermarket stereo. Stay OEM, it's best for everyone. If you must have music, and don't care about the 8k RPM song, then update after the head unit. Amp and speakers, but leave the head unit intact.

Good advice, but which amp and speakers do you recommend?

This, I feel the exact same way. Keep it stock. I prefer to even keep the amp and speakers stock.

yes it is! It has one blemish on car fax for a parking lot ding. The repair looks flawless and the paint measures true. I got it for $85 and it’s almost flawless with 10,000 miles!

Sounds like the dream situation for a great track car! Hopefully we see you at some citrus PCA events.
