Haha...the factory wheels were 12". Couldn't get tires anymore, so I upgraded to 13" Mazda 323 alloys with 175/50R13 Sumitomos. I originally planned on doing a 1.6L DOHC Turbo engine swap from a Mercury Capri XR2, but the only engine I could find was pretty much toast. I decided to go with the 1.6L SOHC due to the fact that it's a direct bolt-in and adds ~40% more power. I may add a junkyard turbo after the engine is broke in, but all I want is enough power to cruise the highway safe and comfortable. There's a guy in Sacramento with a 1.8 DOHC swap (Escort GT motor) and a junkyard turbo set-up that runs low 12's with 2.0 60'. Another guy in Phoenix runs his at Firebird on the road course with great success. When the car only weighs 1700Lbs, it responds well to simple suspension upgrades...Urethane bushings, better struts, cut springs, good tires and factory sway bars are all it takes to pull ~1.0G.
