Trying my hand at a turbo
Just dropped some cash on my car, now I'm waiting for everything to get here!!!
Stage 2 ky clutch/pressure plate (hopefully I found the holy grail with these guys)
Annnndd a long block from a 96 with 85k on it.
My car has 158k on it, I realize I CAN turbo it and it CAN stay reliable, but why risk it if I am in a position to make something a little more reliable. I am going to take the long block to the local race shop and do forged pistons and rods, and possibly church up the head a bit. The car will be dailied for another year or so, maybe a few trips to deals gap, but definitely some spirited driving/occasional track days. All of the things above I either have or are on their way, this isn't a fantasy dream build! Also, I realize I have not touched the suspension. Once I get my car running exactly how I want it, I will slap coilovers and some 225/45's on it and hang on for the ride!
