Oh man that's awesome! I've been looking for a small manual short bed 2wd truck! Hope you can get it running!
Sway is like a race horse; if you push it sometimes, it's ok, but if you are hard on it all the time, then it's going to break its ankle and then you will have to shoot it.

If I had to do my GTSR5 conversion again, I would have done a Carbs setup. Safe from the EFI hassle, and you can reuse your harnesses.

Car is pretty much done just need a few minor things done to it. Putting carpet and bucket seats in it, building front coilovers and then destroying it.

Got tired of driving this thing on the stupid blown suspension so I finally spent a little bit of money to upgrade. This will be a world of difference considering the car was riding on stock suspension with the springs cut to the point that the car was just sitting on the top of the strut housing. I cut off the spring perch and took 40mm out of the strut housing and welded it back together. It's getting short stroke KYB shocks in place of the stock blown ones and will be getting ground control collars welded to the new strut housing as soon as they get here.

Also picked up some new spares. Didn't notice how blurry this pic was

IIRC the KYBs should be pretty decent until you go full coilovers. Should make a decent difference.
