    so the first task at hand was to find parts for the build! and oh boy was there a lot of stuff out there so i started shopping (mostly used)
    So here are some things i got a set of HKS 264-272 cam with skunksworks adj. cam gears and what you see on them is polish from my buffer i used it to remove old build up oil ($150)
    IMG_2062.JPG
    Now This bin is worth about $1500 bucks because what lies inside is 1.dsmlink v3 lite 2.aem wideband with no cables, 3. precision 62-62 turbo (i think) 4. glowshift boost gauge, oil pressure, oil temp gauge,
    5. a blue tial external wastegate, 6. a tial blow off valve, 7. 1250cc fic injectors, 8. fuel pressure regulator 9. high flow fuel rail.
    IMG_2063.JPG
    here we have a mishimoto radiator ($50)
    IMG_2064.JPG
    most likely an ebay intercooler with full piping for a 2g dsm ($50)

    I hope this is just a drag car build cause it will never pass NYS inspection.

    Is the car a gst or gsx? I see the cat has good taste and loves the rare black interior LOL. Did you drop the battery or relocate it? You should send your ecm link in to be upgraded to full v3. Nice build btw keep the photos coming!
