    Hey guys.
    While i am not particularly new to the site, i do have a new project to introduce.
    I just bought a 97 GST shell that i couldnt pass up.
    I traded it for evo 8 enkeis & $250 LOL.
    This car will be a daily and a track car. I will race it at ASR in Deming upon completion.
    The build so far goes as follows:
    •6 bolt block
    •2g head
    •2g pistons with 1g rods to keep comoression at 8.5:1
    •ARP Hardware
    •60mm tb
    I plan to run a 16g and tune it on e85 once done.
    Not getting too crazy with the power im shooting for 350-375. With 400hp being max. Will post pics up later

    Sounds like you have a plan laid out for sure do you have a set budget for the build/project? I've always found it west to set a budget and stick to it to accomplish my goals better than to wing it and not have the last couple parts due to frugal spending on something I didn't quite need yet. Good luck!

    Thanks and i really dont have a budget laid out. Since i want it to be a daily & a weekend warrior im looking for the parts that best work together. Its not a power hungry build. Once i have it all figured out i will establish a budget. For now the plan is not to exceed $5k. Including cost of the car ($600 LOL)[DOUBLEPOST=1414181282][/DOUBLEPOST] 10456435_727556243973714_9198398616883152062_n.jpg
