    I wanted to start a local thread for AZ DSMers to post their DSM build project they've been wrenching on for months or just a quick post about a bolt-on they installed. Feel free to post pictures of the bling...

    Personally, I've been getting my car ready to make a few 1/4 mile passes at the new Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park next month. AFR tuning is complete at 28psi with conservative timing, I'll be getting a little more aggressive with it and see if I can increase airflow 5-6lbs/min.

    Thanks. Yea, hopefully those virtual dyno graphs get closer to 450whp before the track visit. They are just estimates but the airflow readings are a bit low, I'm doing some experimenting with different IM's to see if I can get more airflow at the same boost level.
    That's a sh**ty job, did you pull the IM to do it?

    Damn, Kyle. I completely forgot about this thread with the new AZ DSM Facebook group it seems like everyone uses it instead. Thanks for bumping it, I like posting stuff on here rather than Facebook.

    Here's what I've been busy doing these last few months, sweating my ass off in the garage.

    Started installing a brand new OE clutch master/slave cylinder, I was using cheap Auto Zone reman'd to get by, and found that the TOB was seized to the clutch PP fingers, had to drop the transmission.

    20150324_202225_zpsrheudc4w.jpg

    20150324_202834_zpskxby9lpe.jpg

    While I had the clutch hydraulics apart I bought speed bleeders for my brake calipers and clutch slave cylinder, now I don't have to recruit my wife to come out and help pump the brake/clutch pedal to bleed the hydraulics.

    20150304_202321_zpseqxg0xn6.jpg

    Installed and re-wired my EDM tail lights, not everyone likes the swap from the USDM ones but I like it on a red car. ---> Video of operation

    Took my VIS CF hood to the body shop and had it re-sprayed with clear coat, the sun was really starting to eat through the resin that originally came with the hood.

    20150706_182110_zps6mdbyqcc.jpg

    Current engine bay shot, transmissions installed but that's about it...

    20150721_162014_zpsiwrgdohi.jpg

    I pulled a washer out from under the fulcrum ball when I installed the transmission with the new TOB and pivot ball, clutch fork position was perfect. Which was a huge relief since installing a transmission sucks by yourself with no transmission jack or engine hoist and I didn't want to drop it and do it again.

    20150716_211630_zpswccznail.jpg

    Long to do list, still have to install the 4g64 water pipe, Jeff Bush t-case brace, ARP exhaust manifold studs, and get the 16AN bungs welded to the radiator and t-stat housing. I also designed a VIN # plate that's currently being made, the one in my car is destroyed after 18yrs of engine bay temps and greasy hands. Probably the thing I'm most excited about getting and installing... LOL

    Here's a picture of the old VIN plate on the firewall and below is the blueprint of the one being made, can't wait! It's going to be aluminum plate, powder coated black, and the text laser etched. The dimensions are the same as the OE placard...

    Pretty sure you just need a smaller hotside. How much power are you looking to make? I've seen almost 70lbs/min out of my bolton 3582htz and see 30psi at 4600-4700 rpms.

    Yea I didn't even think about that, I found a shop in Mesa doing it for a reasonable price so I jumped on the deal.

    Next time. :)

    Started my wire tuck on my Spyder. Did as much research as possible before I started this project. Wish me luck.

    Yep, that's exactly what I've been doing too. LOL

    I've got a stack of parts on the work bench waiting for the break in the heat, looks like we might get one this weekend so GET READY!
