Transmission Rebuild and new clutch

New 8.8 rear end with upgraded Moser axles
New suspension - New Konis all around, new H&R springs, new bushings, SN95 control arms, rear lower control arms, sway bars, front bracing, subframe connectors, inner/outer tie rods, cc plates, most from Maximum Motorsports

The engine has been upgraded as follows:
Huber tuned engine, big valve head, roller cam. ported exhaust, upgraded turbo, new vane meter, air intake system, LA3, 35lb injectors, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, external fuel pump, and upgraded TurboCoupe intercooler. The vehicle has been safely tuned and the dyno from Huber showed 260/295 (dyno chart is not in my possession, sorry).
From a old listing of this vehicle, which was listed for $9,500 in 2005, it was noted the vehicle has a short block from Jon Huber's 1979 which "is .060 over, with nitrided and shot-peened internals, Ranger roller cam, etc." I have no way of verifying that, unfortunately, just wanted to share the tidbit though.
The vehicle is equipped with its original wheels (refinished), original steering wheel, original dash, original shifter, original door panels, and original leather seats. To my knowledge, no interior items have been permanently altered and it visually looks original except for the radio.
Below is the list of defects, issues, or simply past history with the vehicle:
Vehicle has had one repaint
There are two small paint defects on the passenger side near the door and front fender
One small door ding in the driver's door (PDR would most likely remove it)
One ~3" hairline crack in the dash between the passenger glove box and radio
One ball-point pen size puncture in the middle of the rear seat
One ~1/4" nick in the driver's side door panel trim in the bottom left corner
Small amount of front-end chips due to normal driving
Engine struggles to find idle when cold (I have a video that can be sent of what I'm referring to)
Except for these items, I am unaware of any of flaws. I disclose them in full transparency. The vehicle is rust free and stored in a 2-car garage under a car cover when not being driven.
