I'm more interested in this "modern ABS" being planned. I know the 968 font hub's & spindles have the reluctor ring & stuff on them, but theres got to be a better solution, right?

Mines a 2010, would highly recommend anywhere in that ball park. Waaaay less rust, and if you pull it yourself you have the added benefit of potentially less miles.

Depending on final cost I'd be interested in another group buy as well. The last one was before I even had my license, so hopefully I'll be able to make this one 😅

My donor car was around $500+tools to rip the engine out, right around 90k. I was able to get the wiring harness, the exhaust manifold, and AC lines, just in case.

Actually by sheer happenstance, looking at all the electric PS equipment in online stores, I saw the S40 pump along with the Mazda 3 and Mini pumps. Thanks for the bump in the right direction!...

I'm trying to figure out a way to do an electric PS pump in hopes of keeping those. There's a guy on here who I think used either an MR2 or TRW electric pump with fitting conversions.

I'm probably going with black again, after I sand blast it and get all the rust off... since the theme of my car is gold with black accents, and also stock/oem colors are more inconspicuous ;)

Woooo!! Excellent news. Even though it'll probably be a while before I'm able to add any sort of traction control, seeing as how I would need to convert to a different front hub and spindle setup......

Apparently there's a speed sensor on the transmission that goes to the MPG gauge on early cars, and later cars with ABS has that VSS wire to the speedo.... I think 🤔

If you can, ask them about Idle control as well. I know the VR6 has some sort of an actuator for when there isn't any force on the cable, and the pinout that was posted a couple times...

Throttle Setups

Right, so here's how I see our options to control the vroomz from the engine.
