    Hey thanks man! I’m planning on some big upgrades this winter. Unfortunately my one track trip this pretty humbling and dissapointing to say the least. I only made 2 runs, red lit on the first, and bogged bad on the second and was blocked from third, ran a 14 something with a 35r on 34 pounds of boost LOL. Drag racing isn’t easy I guess forgot how important seat time is. But the car was a blast on the dsm82, and I know the car was making good power, but I’m ready for a new direction with the car.

Super stoked to finally have an upgraded trans with a 4 spider diff, also gonna be pulling the motor for forged internals and upgraded valve train. Ever since I picked up a nice jh racing t4 divided manifold my mind has been spinning with new options and goals on the car. Super excited to have a new stout set up:hellyeah:

    So here’s my car currently, I’ve decided to pull the motor again and rebuild it right to handle some power. I was originally going to simply throw on a new turbo and run the new trans/clutch set up, but I figured with the fluids drained, tranny and axles out I might as well just rebuild the damn thing and not worry about the stock bottom end breaking LOL. I’ll try and ad updates as I move along, it’s a boring build thread I know but I figure I’ll give the whole participation thing a shot LOL 80E1B7A4-C48B-4639-942D-DBFABE0EDF7F.jpeg

    What’s your hp goal?

    My build isn’t exciting. Just doing what we all do and documenting it as I go and it seems to be more repairs lately on my end which is frustrating.

    My goal is 600whp, I’m planning on going with some manley h beams/pistons, and upgrading the fuel lines and intercooler while I’m at it. Hoping the rewired 450 with the addition of a Bosch 044 and hi z 1650’s will get me there, and while the block/head are at the machine swap I’ll delete the ac, and throw in my 4 bolt rear end:thumb:

    I'm still kicking myself for not buying that dsm82. It sounds like the car is going to be down for a long time. These "while I'm in there" type projects last a while as you keep thinking of things to replace while you're in there.

    Ha that’s the truth Vegas! I’m super excited tho, saying I have a t4 divided set up just sounds cool LOL, anyways as far as the dsm82 goes I was staying bolt on I guarantee I would have sold it to get that new to zero coming out LOL

I also picked up a new act flywheel a while back and some Manley pistons! Their 9:1 with the thicker wrist pin.

    7F25B7D7-C407-4E22-93D9-6E72645A4508.jpeg Finally starting the teardown! I’m excited to see what my bearings look like with less than 500 miles on them. I’ll post updates as slowly tear this thing down, I’m in no rush, again this is a perfectly fine, healthy rebuilt stock 6 bolt. I’m simply tearing it down so I can build it right to hopefully make some power. 35EF187B-C688-420C-A39B-D4B75CA064AD.jpeg It looks like I had some kind of leak on the passenger side of the intake manifold OMG
