More goodies for the track monkey

Kognition wing I took off Sav's hands (as well as his Kiesler drop spindles not in yet)



Begi 3 on left going in DD, Precision that's going in track car



Block from NB (for track car) is finished with machining and the 10.5:1 weiscos and carrillo rods are going in. Honestly, the remaining +$500 parts needed is the AEM infinity, cams and a transmission of some sort. And a ****- load of labor.

I stopped drinking beer 3 weeks ago after I had to have an EGD done... nasty heartburn and reflux (for years ). Doc took several biopsies from stomach and I've got fatty liver, gee - wonder why?

Right now I'm trying to determine the best placement of the evo vent I got fur free... the hood is in the background of the intercoolers.

Here's a couple pics of the black/blue pearl on the NB. Paint dude has a long way to go. Will have a silver/gunmetal stripe with an inlaid Asian Dragon up the middle and some ghost flames on the side too.

As a general design, any input on my design of the wing uprights? Obviously it's a rough sketch in red, but will mount between rear deck/trunk seams with quarter panel and come out about 2". It'll mount the wing slightly above the top line and the trailing edge will be behind the bumper.

wing mounts look fine, but I would use little triangles over the long slats if your just trying to reduce weight.

I would think a thinner, solid piece of aluminum would be a better way of providing light weight providing you add lateral support wires. Thinking in terms of aero and weight combo, since you will need lateral support with almost any thickness of upright.

This '94 block with '00 head is good for 350 if I want.
8.6:1 Supertechs
Belfab rods
Hybrid BB turbo falls between a gt2871 and 3071. More like a t31 with a 52 trim compressor on a t3 flange turbine.
Boundary single shim OP
Mtuned Reroute
750cc IDs
Rebuilt head (nothing extravagant)
ARTech jethot coated taco clone

Bitch is about to be dropped into the NB
Swap TSE BB kit (with hubs) from track car over as well as the sport rears
Finish proper depower of PS rack
Install front/rear sways
Finish the getto bilstein/qa1/ebay coilovers setup
Install Begi 3" IC
Install 1.5 way Kaaz lsd
Install Supermiata sprung ceramic 4 puck on Exedy FW
Tune and finish paint... ****, that's a lot.

Well, the carrillo and weiscos are for the track car, 10.5:1.

But yeah, the NB will be done before the real track car, so it'll pretty much be prepped for the track add I intend to track it unit the beast lives again

I take both cars to my fabricator/tuner later next week, expect to have the NB back in several weeks - hopefully my airbrush guy will have the rest of the car parts painted by then as I will certainly be dying to drive the ***** out of it.

Street NB with 320 on tap, Kaaz 1.5, 11.75"bbk from track car, reroute... ***** gonna be awesome
