Description
My 1985 Plymouth Turismo has been an ongoing project since I acquired ownership of it in October, 2001. It has gone through many changes over the years. I always had the intent of transplanting a turbo motor into the T-Riz, but after purchasing a low mileage 1983 Shelby Charger, I am now content with keeping her naturally aspirated. I will be swapping the low mileage HO motor from the '83 in this winter along with an a555 5 speed swap (finally!). In addition, I plan on swapping to a Shelby Charger 5-lug conversion. I wish to install a different muffler over the winter time as well in order to get a quieter sound from the exhaust. I am still debating as to whether or not to change up my interior to that of the early '83 style in the same color scheme. Only time will tell on that.

Notable Modifications Made to the T-Riz:
Complete 1985-86 Blue/Gray Shelby Charger Interior
FWD Performance Koni/Eibach Adjustable Coilover Setup
FWD Performance 2.5" Mandrel Bent Exhaust with Dynomax Muffler and '85 Daytona Turbo Z Exhaust Tip
Direct Connection Chrome Dress-up Pieces for Engine Bay
Direct Connection Whale Tail Spoiler
Direct Connection Izumi 4-Spoke Steering Wheel w/Shelby Horn Button
Direct Connection Floormats with Pentastar
Rear Window Louvers
CS Windshield Banner
1987 Shelby GLHS Gauge Cluster
Charger 2.2 GFX
Charger 2.2 Hoodscoop
Shelby Charger 4-Lug Pizza Rims
Alpine Head Unit

I am privileged to have received so much positive feedback on my car over the years, as it is my pride and joy out of my entire fleet. I appreciate all of the support I have received in designing this car to my liking, and cannot thank my brother Pat and my Dad enough for all of their help and guidance.

The car wasn't at SDAC-20 (you had a different toy to show off!)
