Update, I just ordered the 949 swaybar kit, new rotors, Carbotech XP8 pads front and rear and the wilwood brake prob valve kit from emilio. Need to get all this installed along with diff mounts next week hopefully. Going to try and make some track days in July/August. Pictures to come soon

It's been a while since I posted, I've been super busy. I just bought a house and have a ton of projects going on. I also started my apprenticeship classes and I still have National Guard duty on some weekends. On top of all that I broke up with my girlfriend of 5 years. So now I guess I have even more time to work on the car haha

I got the suspension in, brakes in and had a track day at the ridge. It was 95* ambient and the car got too heatsoaked. I had a blast but I needed a way to manage the heat. I kept hitting my temp limit and had to cut all my sessions way short. I got a Trackspeed radiator and 25 row oil cooler kit along with the biggest inter cooler I could fit in the car. But I missed the last track days of the season

I also ordered a DIYPNP and some Bosch ev14 780cc injectors. Going to finally get this thing on the dyno and see what she can do.

I installed some singular hood vents and a rear kg works rear spoiler for the time being.

Got a Sparco suede 330mm wheel so my 6'3" legs dont hit it while braking and turning anymore. Got a million things to do on the car but I'm making progress.

I also bought a multi process Everlast TIG welder. I'm going to be re doing the manifold/turbo/exhaust at some point. I also needed it for my new motorcycle project.

Its an 82 920cc Yamaha Virago. Paid $400 for it all stock. It should be a rad bike when I finish it up.

DIYPNP is here, along with an EFI bluetooth serial adapter and 780cc EV14 Bosch injectors

Can't wait to get this together.

quick update. I'm terrible at this. But I got the car tuned on the DIYPNP. First pull made 280/260 on a mustang dyno, ended up with a very conservative tune at 260/220. I recently bought a mazdaspeed crankshaft, eagle rods and got a free block. They are currently at the machine shop, getting measurements for bearings and a final bore size. Planning on 84mm 8.6/1 Supertech pistons. I bought some Boundary oil pump gears as well and got some Wilwoods! for $350



Picked up a 6 speed today for $650.




Trying to get this thing dialed for some serious track time this season.
