Re: 1990 Tiger Provan GT rwd to awd or 4x4

2000 miles in, all systems good. Between the bigger tires, different intake (CPI vs TBI), and the extra metal weight its carrying underneath it took a significant MPG penalty, even in 2wd. Used to go just over 400 miles on a tank of gas, now goes just over 300. That's my only gripe. That and I need a bigger tranny cooler. But stoked! Just need to order the tool box for the back!

Storage box mounted with tail lights! This is a game changer since the pop-top GT's don't have a lot of storage with the top down. Big enough for snowboards and great for wet/stinky stuff too!

Paint job will be the next major project!!!
