But with the ute sold off to family friend Craig Tropeano, and the company’s Barra-powered Fox-body Mustang not quite ready to roll for DC 2019, Tuff Mounts frontman Jason Waye set out to revisit his youth with one of Mitsubishi’s finest-ever offerings: the Sigma.
Jase tracked down a mint example in Melbourne, already V8-equipped and a staunch little streeter in its own right. But the plan is to relieve the car of its Holden bent-eight so it can become a Tuff Mounts development mule for LS conversion hardware. Yep, you’ll soon be able to purchase off-the-shelf engine mounts to stuff an LS into a Sigma of your very own.

The car will soon be fitted with a warmed-over LS that Jason hopes will put it in the low-11/high-10-second zone. It’ll be a fun build, and we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop!
