The only place I could find any warning about additional fees. Bahaha. Lets just slap a little hand written note on the estimate that will cover $13,000 for a half day at the hospital.

Lolol thats fucked.

Hailey did an overnight stay and surgery. Bill was like $30k. Thankfully shes still on her dad's insurance. Anesthesia is fucked up, we got like 4 different bills for it.

I feel like I need a degree in medical billing to decipher it all.

MS and wide band installed. AEM Gauge in the eyeball vent. Will be taping the IAT in the stock air box as a temp solution. Thinking about mounting the Intercooler so I can start working on the cold side pipping. Still need to order clutch, exhaust, rods, rings, boost gauge, and possibly dw300.

I weld intercooler piping for lunchables and consumables. Get it all mocked up and taped together and I can weld it up.

Is this ghetto? I feel like it may be. I managed to use JB weld, Duct tape, scrap exhaust pipe, and zip ties all on one part. I feel like I should have just twisted the wires together and electrical taped it to complete this work of art.

Its typically cheaper to find the ebay intercooler you want with a pipe kit with more bends than you need included than to buy the intercooler and ebay pipe kit separately, which is still cheaper than buying the inter cooler seperately along with only the bends you think you need.

Paint it with some high temp paint or wrap with gold reflective tape and you've got a nice little piece.

So I contacted KO Racing in Oregon City about building an exhaust after a few smart folks recommended them. They are up for it and should cost about the same as enthuzacar but it will keep the money local.

I also wired up the launch control/ flat shift with a kill switch. I repurposed the clutch safety switch for this and holy **** that is some violent stuff. The flat shift will chirp 3rd pretty hard even with Sport comp 2s and all of probably 105whp. I think I am going to leave that **** off once I have decent power. Just seems like asking for broken driveline.

My stock steering wheel feels like a big soft ***** and I hate it. I picked up a 350mm Nardi with a NRG 2.5 QR on CL for $160. I can't wait for the damn hub to show up from amazon prime so I can get it in. I think it is a classy looking wheel. I may be picking up a set of V-maxx extremes BNIB for pretty cheap tomorrow. I plan on upgrading someday but I just can't stand the 4x4 look right now. The downside is it breaks my rule of never buying anything with "extreme" in the name because it is stupid. There is nothing extreme about deodorant, soda, or car shocks.

OK so I thought I would update this. I started doing ****. I pulled the bumper, stock exhaust, and EGR crap. I set up the track speed manifold and turbo.

Just a heads up the three 4mm allen that hold the waste gate actuator bracket are sketch. two of the three where on there pretty good and I almost stripped them. As soon as they felt wrong I stopped and picked up a fresh never used allen. I also used a rubber mallet to tap the bracket a little as I loosened them and that did it. It would be nice if the turbo was pre set up a little more but I get it. The EFR probably doesn't leave the factory package and it would add time.

I had to trim a fair amount off all the 3 of the locking tabs on the stage 8. I just used a grinder.

The water lines are ****. Just super nice. The oil lines are sweet as well.

I think I jumped the gun on putting the water lines in though because I haven't run my intercooler pipping or done the final clock on the outlet. If I try and clock it down I don't think it will clear the shelf or the water lines while installed.

I am still waiting on my drill bit from amazon to do the pan so that will have to wait. I am also waiting on a m10-1.5 to AN4 fitting from eBay. The kit comes with a oil pressure T for the oil feed but I am considering using the feed on my hot side 94 block. This obviously is not the intent of the kit. I am going to see if I like it but the oil feed line will probably be way too long.

I also got everything I need to get my GM coils in thinks to SADFAB. I am going to hold off on putting those in until I have it back on the road.

I am currently going back and forth on the whole build a engine idea. As a precaution I picked up a low boost actuator and a pigtail for the EBC. I hope to tune it safe for now then pick up a 99 plus with a running engine and 6 speed. More than likely though I will blow this motor in a few months like a *******.

Plan for tomorrow is to install a FM 1 happy meal I picked up used in good shape for super cheap. Then it is downpipe time and eBay intercooler fuckery.

Here is some shitty pics. Really dark out and I have literally no lights in my sad *** poor people single car garage.
