Koto, I can tell you that your BEGI downpipe has found a good home. It sees the track regularly.

Get it stopping? Is the BBK gone? Must be if it has those wheels on it, lol.

EDIT - I see a few mods from the red car on the black one, that explains it.
I just purchased the shell, subframes, and rear brakes. The front brakes went somewhere else!

Ah ok. Those are 99 sport rears, if you didn't know already. Or if they weren't swapped off.

I've added Monoflexes and hood pins since I got it, and changed out the badging, side skirts, and wheels. Did some brake upgrades too, everything short of a BBK.

Lost a bit of weight too, took out the engine cover (unnecessary dead weight) and use a 6 lb battery.

Just an update, since it has been a loong time.

Kotomile's old car is nearly back on the road :

Fired it up tonight for the first time with this engine/drivetrain in it. Have to install an interior - but that is about it.

Really want to see some **** revived from the dead?

I bought the intake manifold and built motor and stored it for a little over a year and a half while I sorted out the wiring and logistics of my swap and wiring harness from scratch. First motor came to an untimely end because I lost a water pump belt and over heated it extremely (past 120C) and the second motor over boosted to like 1.8bar and blew the headgasket/rings. After finally having a handle on everything ( I think) I decided it was time for the built motor. On a stock block I made roughly 375whp/300ftlbs at 1.6bar and this motor will see between 1.6 and 1.8bar with the same turbo and in the fall I'll upgrade and downsize to a T3 GTX2871.

Enough of that, anyways Here's how the new built motor sits in the car:
