    If I remember correctly your crew was packing up at the track and was asking if anyone wanted the last burger. Chris did what any fat guy like us would do, nom nom nom.

    I'll start with the bad.
    It has a hideous front bumper that the previous owner put on.
    cracked windshield
    dash vinyl has pulled slightly at the plaque
    typical paint fade
    dsmlink ecu has an issue/ now the car wont start and the laptop doesn't recognize it's there. (the car will start with a stock ecu).
    I'm sure I'm missing something, the car is 13 years old.

    The good.
    It has potential.
    I slapped on a frank 4 turbo with a 40mm wastegate
    it has dsmlink
    ETS fmic
    550cc injectors
    2600 clutch
    we put evo 9 pistons on 1g rods in the car (still breaking the motor in)
    ETS intake.
    I'm sure there is more. This is just the things I have off the top of my head.

    It comes down to getting older and having to many projects while having a family. I'd like to start focusing again on my 2g and fear that this will be neglected until the 2g is done and that may be a while. I don't really have time for the 2g but come hell or high water I'm getting it done this year.

    Ideally I'd like to find a gvr4 with a clean and complete shell or roller that needs no body repair as a minimum.

    Keep your eyes open, The numbers are falling and fast. People with really nice one's ask top dollar. Let me know if you want to look at it, I'm not far from you. I'm just being honest and up front.

    Well I haven't posted or been on Tuners I'm a LONG time. I guess I'll throw a post up since I have vanished off tuners for the past 6 months or so.

    So let me start off with an update of what happened with the old setup.
    Before pulling the HTA35r setup this past winter, I was able to break the single digit barrier out in Ohio and took first place in the DSM Eliminator class. This may not seem like a huge deal to some, but it really gave me a proud moment to share with me, my friends and my car. I took a shell that was headed to the junk yard and within the second season, once I finally got used to driving an AWD car and drag racing, was able to achieve much faster times than I expected. As the times dropped, the parts were slowly added to make a solid foundation that would make whatever the fastest the car could go, possible.

    With tuning the car myself, to building the engine, to assembling the trans, to doing the entire cars wiring, the end result was something I was proud of and was definitely fun. The car never was dyno'd, but trapping close to 150mph in a heavier car isn't to shabby in my mind on a medium sized turbo. Towards the end if last season, I decided to try my luck with the true street class and felt I needed to step the game up to even think about qualifying. I ended up pulling the 3586 for the 3794. I never got one solid pass on the 67mm because now my car was eating t-cases for dinner. I went through a built 300m case and 5 stock t-cases just as many passes. It was very frustrating. It seemed like out of the blue the car went from reliable as all hell busting repeated low 10/high 9 second passes, to breaking something every single pass. With that the season ended and I decided to give this racing thing one more shot. Never in my mind would I even think this would even be possible, but because I've hit the 9's, I have no choice but to commit to trying to break into the 8's in AWD 5-speed form.

    Over the winter I pulled the engine which btw did great for what it was. It was a standard Wiseco/Eagle build that definitely held it own and never let me down, even reving that thing to over 10,500 at times. I couldn't have been happier with the performance of it. That motor was pulled and sold to another local so he can have a nice setup for himself for cheap. That money went into partly paying for the machine work needed on the new setup. This setup consists of a few changes as opposed to the last setup, and should be a little more stout.

    The engine is a SickPerformance built 2.0L aluminum rod bottom end with custom
    Wiseco high compression pistons on 23mm pins, half filled and girdled block with all the goodies done on the machining end. The car will now be on E85 switching from Q16 that I've been so used to running. The injectors are now high-Z and the E85 should make close if not the same power as long as I have enough injector and pump to make the power. We will have to see when we start really cranking the boost. I'm sure ill need to run high base pressure but it is what it is.
    Along with the new bottom end, I also decided to change a few items in my setup to help support the new found power needed to crack a 8 second pass. At the end of the day Im hoping to be a solid 900whp car. In order to do that I switched a few things up for this season. The funds have been limited and unlike last season, I have no help whatsoever with the race program. As most of you fast guys know, this sport is hell on your wallet, time, and family. I tried to squeeze what I could in terms of changes, but still didn't do some key things I'd like to do. For now the goal is to get the car together then change the small things later. In the next few weeks the car will be coming together. I'm building my bottom end this weekend and getting the car ready to drop it back in. I'd like to hit the East Coast Shootout, but having a complete problem free, tuned, setup is going to be next to impossible before then. I have to go out of town next week, so I really only have two good weekends to get the car together. I still need to get the alignment done and a bunch of other stuff once its together also, but if I can at least bring the car to do some test pulls, that would be awesome. I plan on posting pictures and updates on this thread and letting the locals know what's going on instead of doing a build thread.

    If anyone has any questions about the 8 second march, just shout!

    Don't hate because I write short stories just as well as you. Lol. The difference in my stories, is they are missing a section for bromancing.


    I couldn't upload pictures last night for some reason. I guess I need to convert them to my computer from my phone.

    Well it's good to see people are getting back up and running. I have been out of the car scene for 3 years now (had a baby and wife works a lot). I finaly have a schedual to where I can get down to the garage and get back to work. I caught the bug again this week and started putting the interior back in from a cage install. I need to get the car back to where it was before tearing it down and doing a major over hall of everything but the bottom end. I have a guy at work making me some bezels to place gauges and once I have that the interior will be done. I can't wait!

    Sounds awesome man. I cant wait to see you at the track and make some pass's. I myself am gonna start tearing my car apart. Ive decided Im gonna re-ring the block and throw a Slowboy Racing built head on with the Crower Springs I purchased from you. The HX install is still pending. Torn between running the Bolton or doing the t3 swap. But that presents another challenge. The t3 Manifold I got would not clear the block with the 40 Housing. So If i do t3 I might as well do a custom Manifold either a bottom mount or a top mount. The supplies are not too much more for a top mount.
