    Background:
    Bought this car in February 2104, in Jasper, Ind. Guy said it was all stock aside from basic maintenance, and the BOV. Said it's been garage kept it's whole life which I believe is the only thing true he said as there is no rust on the car and the interior is in immaculate condition. Driving it home the CV axle and intermediate shaft separated, after hitting a bump in the road because he didnt bolt the shaft to the back of the block. It beat the crap out of my oil pan and rattled alot of bolts loose. Also the car wouldn't go over 5K RPMS but didnt know till after I bought the car since I couldn't get to a highway to test drive it as it was over 30 minutes to the closest one. Ended up with a S16g nice, but the clutch was a ACT that got destroyed at least the disc and TOB due to the rattling loosened the bellhousing bolts and I thought I had re tightened all the bolts . Had a brand new head in it and had installed bad lifters and caused the cams to dig into the head and forced me to replace the head. But found out about the head due to running out of fuel due to bad gauge and it broke a cam sprocket bolt and jumped time as well. I also ended up with a broken oil squirter as well. In all I've had the car 3 years and have driven it for all about 3 weeks. After each problem I fixed it and got it back up and running good. Right before the Clutch issue I made up my mind that if I had one more problem I was gonna tear everything down and rebuild it this was in July of 2015. Now here we are in February of 2017 and finally getting to do so. My Plan now is to make it at least running and driving again then upgrades which Some I will do as I go now. My final goal is to at least hit 10's but I know me and speed and I know it won't stop there. But I have to learn how to walk before I can run and I'm gonna have to really get down and understand Link and anything tuning related first, Mechanical I learn quickly Tuning I'm not so sure of yet.
