Is that Clairetoo's trans adapter or locally made?

This thread is making me feel bad about my choice to "build" my bp.

I bought an adapter setup from Claire. Then shortly after, I purchased the V8Roadsters setup, which included the adapter for the RX-8 trans. So the adapter kit from Claire needs to sell so I can spend some more money.

I can now see the "fail" in this thread. It's the budget part that is failing, right?

Yes, the "failing" is the long lost budget.

Left me know what ya find, Concealer. Money ready when you are.

On another note, I did just try to put the engine in...well, tried. For some reason there's several bolts that don't seem to line up. Time to take the trans adapter to the machine shop...

Nothing exciting goin on. Just a few boring pics to add. This V8Rkit is a slight pain in the ***. It's almost there though. Urethane bushings, flares, and the engine should be in by the weekend. Triumph ITB's are in the mail. Discussing a plenum for them, as well. BFG Rivals mounted.

Time for a little update, I suppose. Not that my progress is anything special, or exciting.

Lets see where we left off...

Got some things painted


Shortly after I decided I hated the car and needed a break. In came this


Traded that for a nice Yamaha R6, then sold that for a huge profit. Took that money and put a little into this beater 510


Then I got a little carried away and started buying too many cars. I bought a clean, very stock convertible 240sx, turned it into this, and sold it right after it was finished.


Then i finished this, which I saved from rotting in a field. Ended up with a blacktop s14 sr20 and a bunch of typical 240 ****


Continued in the next post....

There were a few other cars in there, such as a 350z and so on. Then my girlfriend took a job 3hrs away, so it was time to sell them and get ready to relocate.



Loaded up and ready for its new home, to continue to get neglected, although, much less.

Here it is, all tucked away in its new

So now we are a little more up to date. Ive been collecting more parts, as I gain the finances to get what I want for it. That includes Microsquirt, Wilwood front brakes, brake booster delete with a Wilwood master, ITB's, and some other odds and ends. Still a ways to go, but it will get finished.



Until next time....
