    It feels good to say this, the floor is 100% done! Got the harness bars all notched and fitted. As for the enclosure bar, for making a template out of taped together conduit this thing was damn close to being perfect lol. The last two bends need a little more bend in them. Once they are bent...

    Well I remade the vertical bars behind the seat, got 1 of the 3 horizontal harness belts in and made my template for the driver enclosure out of electrical conduit. This took FOREEVERR to make. This was probably revision #10 lol. I am happy with how this one looks and fitment so I can bring...

    Going for that Tesla style sunroof lol. I bought a carbon roof about 2 years ago.. I can't wait to finish this car so I can finally get that thing on! Definitely a lot of work but luckily I enjoy doing this stuff.

    FINALLY the trans case is done at powder coat, picked it up and dropped it off to Shep. Shortly after their TX2K rush is over mine should be done!! Worked on the rust rocket a bit as well, got the fuel cell support done and fuel pump mocked up so I could shave the motor mount to fit. As for...

    Pretty much went for gold with no looking back haha! The piece that I cut out will get welded back in and sealed around where the tubes go through the floor.

    Well I have made the decision to go full 25.5 on the Turd. As much as I didn't want to I ripped the whole cage out so I could do the floor bars the way I wanted to and looking back I'm so glad I did. Thankfully most of the bars were just sitting on the notches and only a few were tacked so it...

    FINALLY! I've been wanting one of these since they came out. About time I pulled the trigger and ordered one. This one has the base plate with the mount for the wilwood staging brake and both lockouts. I have a new shift arm on order that is steel vs alum and 2" shorter so I can run the...

    Progress!! Finally found some time to bring my bent conduit over to get bent out of chromoly. Got it all tacked into place finished up the fuel cell surround and the driver side. All that's left up front is the top core support piece and some fuel cell/intercooler mounting and its DONE...

    Drag Race Build 2g awd swap forward facing 6466

    Started playing around with the fuel cell and the upper tube for the passenger side. I ended up not liking the first rendition as it wasn't symmetrical to the driver side so I remade it again and I think I like this version better. This is still just out of 1" electrical conduit but now that I...

    Drag Race Build 2g awd swap forward facing 6466

    Tossed the subframe that I forgot I had back in and bolted the rear mount up so the engine sits at the correct angle so I could get the upper supports made. This is a piece of 1" conduit as a template that I will be bringing over to Mikes house so we can bend this same thing out of chromoly...

    Got my notcher fixed thankfully(the threads got doinked that the hole saw screws onto) Got the lower cross tube notched and test fitted, lookin good! Time to get the hood on this car so I can check for bumper height and make some sort of temporary mounts to make sure the bumper doesn't move...

    That's a wrap for the season! Back onto the turd! I got the mock up motor and trans in the car so I can start building the front end. Also, ended up building a pretty sweet car dolly so I can push this thing around my garage, makes working on it much easier. Tonight I'll be notching the...

    BIG TIME WINNER! 60 psi boost and coolant pressure is peerrrrrfect(I would have to look at a log as to what exactly the pressure is) This gasket is the REAL DEAL

    What an awesome weekend at Marion County Raceway! So Friday evening I took the car out to make the first pull on the new clutch before loading it into the trailer and wa bam...shredded 3rd gear LOL. I figured I was out for the weekend until Mike at Buschur saved the freaking day! He...

    Slowmotion Track day was awesome at Dragway 42 yesterday. I entered into the Street Fighter Import vs Domestic which only rule was a 28" tire max, no power adder limits. First pass off the trailer 9.8 at 149 with 4* of timing taken out and only about 43 psi with a crappy 1.66 60' - this was a...

    Intercooler pipe V2 completed. Now there is a 90* welded to the turbo with a straight coupler...now were ready for all of it! Going to Dragway 42 tomorrow evening for a couple test passes, probably not even a full pass but we will see!

    Drag Race Build 2g awd swap forward facing 6466

    We made some POWAA! best of 771/613 on Buschurs mustang dyno. Not the numbers I was expecting but it still made some jam. We started off at wastegate pressure made a few pulls to figure out timing, turned the boost up to 35 then finished at 48 psi. The triggered fuel pump some how got reset...

    1G Athena HeadGasket

    I am in the process of testing one out! I hit the dyno with it over the weekend but ran into an issue so we couldn't give it the beans quite yet. This weekend I will. I will be logging coolant pressure as well. So far its held up great to a wastegate pull lol

    Drag Race Build 2g awd swap forward facing 6466

    Unfortunately the dyno didn't go as planned. We made an initial test hit, no duty on the boost controller, pig rich, no timing we were still getting everything sorted and setup. First pull went to 4500 ish rpm and it made like 370/350 LOL. Checked the straps and we're ready to make a pull to...

    Drag Race Build 2g awd swap forward facing 6466

    ITS ALLIIIVEEEE!! I dedicated Saturday to working on this thing, started maybe around 12 and started it around 7. The only issue I had was a slight mishap on the new injectors. The injectors/fuel rail was the last piece of the puzzle to install before the first start up, go to slap them in...

    Drag Race Build 2g awd swap forward facing 6466

    It's innnnn! Couple things holding me up, OFH bolts seemed to have grown legs so hopefully this weekend I can pick a new set up. The turbo (as i figured) hits the upper core support so I will have to modify that some how, couple other miscellaneous stuff I need but by the end of this weekend I...

    dont judge me LOL No one I know personally has used one yet. They only were released to the US within the last year however people over seas have been using them on high power 4g stuff with great success. To my knowledge a lot of the high hp LS, GTR, 2J, RB cars use these SCE gaskets. Myself...

    9 days The light bulb went off in my head yesterday and it actually worked. I flipped the intercooler upside down and it fits along with the bumper and the best part is I didn't have to hack up my bumper to make this work! This is actually going to work out great because once I clock the...

    10 days. Picked up my intercooler and trans over the weekend. The local trans guru gave it a clean bill of health, welded the center diff and its ready for some action. As for the intercooler this is an issue.. When I built the tube front end it was meant for a 3.5" intercooler..not a 6" so I...
