Info: I bought the Esprit back in December of 05 with the intent on just doing a couple of things, like maybe some wheels and a K&N filter. Now I've just completed adding a chargecooler and adding the secondary injectors now I'll send the GMP4 ecm to John at WC for reprogramming and hopefully see about 300whp. I love the looks you get in the Esprit and everyone wants to look at the engine! I plan on doing a full paint respray next year and retrim some of the interior leather soon as well.
