    Getting the subframe and suspension reinstalled soon and finally putting the wheels on the ground for the first time in 7 months. I cleaned the heck out of the wheel wells and applied undercoating to them. While the car is in the paint booth, we are going to knock out the final pieces to the engine while it's on the stand. I want the motor to be ready to drop when the car comes back from paint.

    It'll all be done one day and you'll be able to enjoy it. A lot of work though...

    Thank you for the compliment on my wheels. It will be a while until I get them on. So as of last Wednesday 2/15/17 the car is currently in the paint booth. I scored a set of euro mirrors on Facebook, traded a high rise for them! They are on the way from Germany so it will be a bit because it's coming from a military APO address. I'll have updated pics soon

    Looking good! It's definitely coming together. I'm assuming it's a 7 bolt with an evo oil filter housing right?

    That is correct, an evo 9 ofh to be exact. I am going to be running an external oil cooler, plus my AEM oil pressure gauge thorough the extra port the 9ofh has available. Good eye!

    Wow, that engine looks super nice. Keep up the good work! Did you do all this by yourself? And how much did it take you? Cheers!

    good question. the motor was completely rebuilt, machine shop did their part, the shop which i go to assembled it. the shaving was me, and the powdercoating was done through a company here in phx. i appreciate the positive feedback! the car is still in the paint shop... been almost 3 months. eh, cant rush perfection.
