    Thumbs Up for Morgan's Motorsports!

    I bought my 93 Stealth RT/TT in December of 2008. Von (xwire), owner of Morgan's Motorsports, even offered to bring his truck and trailer to bring it back to STL (since I picked it up in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.) It's been quite a long time since then, and I think some of you remember seeing it in Memphis at NG09 (but I didn't race) with a fresh coat of paint and 180K maintenance done.

    Since then, I thought long and hard about my goals for the car. I wanted a powerful street car (since this was going to be my DD), and I wanted a turn key car that would always fire right up, have the power I needed, and get me where I needed to go consistently.

    Von suggested a 15G build (partly because I snagged a brand new set of 15G's for a steal on the other site right after I bought the car really. They literally sat in boxes in my basement and apartment for 2 years!)

    So Von and Levi (95gto) gave me all the advice and suggestions I needed to get my car from dream to reality. (Special mention also to Eric vr440 of Mid America Customs for my original custom exhaust and also for my most recent cosmetic upgrade). If you're curious, boomer3000 (boozer to some) is rocking my old exhaust.

    My build wasn't that radical, but as with any car build, things never go the way you want them to. My knock sensor was acting up, my wideband o2 died, my boost controller didn't want to work right away, my AWS system broke, my floorboards were rusted through, etc. You name it, this car had it or had a problem with it.

    However, Morgan's Motorsports came through for me every time, and as you can see in the video below, this car gets it done just as I had hoped.




    So once again, thanks to Morgan's Motorsports. I couldn't be happier with this car. And then of course, Von has mentioned that he has a few other special things he wants me to look at in the coming months! Stay tuned.

    Will vouch for this car and Morgan's Motorsports.

    This car was given much life from where it was and had been!

    It never fails that every year at the NG, the cars that Morgan's Motorsports build end up going home with trophies. Whether they are for the track events or for the cosmetic awards, they always seem to win something.

    It speaks volumes for the amount of work that goes into the cars that the MMS team builds.

    Hey Ft. Wayne is in my backyard! Lol. I met Von at NG11 and he was a really cool guy and easy to talk to. I know some shop owners and guys with some serious know-how are kind of an ass when talking to newbs but he talked to me like I was one of the guys.

    Big props to Von and all the Morgan's guys.

    Not to mention that they're a pretty terrific group of people. Except that they over-served me....
