That's a legit list Jordan! Very well thought out.

Id def. keep your eye out for used parts to help save you some $$ for the new go fast parts you need.


Your spring rates seem very high at 700f/350r. Going to be a stiff ride for sure.

This has been my favorite thread to go through by a long shot. I love seeing how to turned around a car so well. Keep taking pictures. That's one thing that really engaged me. I felt like I was part of the whole process. Funny thing is that I just posted a thread to see what other people use their back seats for. I like your thinking. I just have 2 speaker boxes with some extra wire for my 6x9s because they were too deep to fit into the speaker holes. I like it though because now I can put my speakers on top of my car and hear my music while I'm doing something outside. I got the idea from a friend. The only difference is that he can go for about 8 hours playing music off of the battery alone. LOL

Thanks man I appreciate it. There will be more to come.

I've been gathering up used parts lately. As soon as I get the time, I'm getting the engine all put back together. Wire tuck is half done. Then the shaving begins. As for the spring rate, I have no idea what I'm actually going with. Suspension is something I'm a complete nube at. I found another thread with that spring rate for autox, which is why that was listed.

I'm now debating running E85 as well.

Just a couple things to add:

1. I would try to go with a walboro 255. I think the 190 will be alright for your current plan, but if you ever wanted to go to a bigger turbo you'lIdefinitely need a 255.

2. I'm running konis with the ground control coilovers sleeves. I definitely recommend spending the extra coin on the ground control setup. I went with 750f/325r and I think the ride is perfect when the konis are on full soft. I'd you crank the konis up, you'll definitely wish you were on a race track.

Keep up the good work!

I've already had the 190 installed for a while. I was running a Big 16g before my current plans. I'm probably going to stick with that for now.
