Figured I need a thread for this so I can just have one thread to update.

More pictures to come and details as I do stuff.



So there now I have a project thread.

ah hell one more just because




Most Recent stuff I have done,

Got Dyno?




Engine Bay at time of Dyno




This is why you use thicker aluminum for base of intake and plenum wall.




Custom Trans Mount & Reinforced SubFrame so I can run slicks






7/9 Series Drive Shaft Safety Loop Install



Proper Brakes installed




My First Set of Corbeau



Old Engine Bay shot



Looking hot once again with 'track' shoes on



Fitting 265/35/18 Tires on 18x8.5 Wheels in the rear





This is why I do not run Autolite plugs anymore, 3 passes at the track and this happens. I think my manifold might favor #4 getting a bit more air.




3.5" over the axle pipe and making it full 3.5" exhaust turbo to tail



External WG and new manifold



Dead Sexy




044 Inline install, this was to assist the Walbro intank




Trans cooler with Fan






Fitting of my Newest Corbeau Seats



Ignore the red harness as that was just a test, Once the car is caged it will have a semi proper 5 point cam lock harness



My Best time at the track that lead up to me needing a 200r4





200r4 Swap

Give me the $700+ for pistons and bearings I need to rebuild my spare engine, as I have rods, just need bearings and pistons and then assemble time.

MS will be there soon enough, Once I pass emissions in May I will have two years to tear things down and redo, for now thanks to the wonderful US Gov I am some $10,000 poor'er this year so until I can find extra funds it shall wait.

Do not tempt me as I already have one here I could do that but I fear the n/a pistons for some reason. Kenny has my thinking to not trust ring lands.

Well I give it credit as my last compression test 2 days ago showed 60psi in #3 and 60psi in #4, #2 showed 130psi which blew me away as it has gained pressure (this is also on a semi warm motor). So beat or not but numbers are better than it used to be with the same gauge. I did not bother checking #1 as I was mainly looking for where I blew my HG.

and hey my first 5 stars, woot

I have a set here out of a car but I could always use another set, Save a set for me and once I am not in the hole I might pick a set up.

There are links above most of the pics, that way people can go see more on each subject vs flooding this thread.

And yes need more stuff done here, no idea what but I need more stuff.
