started work on the rear subframe


assembled the diff



removing the old bushings was a lot harded than putting in the new ones

all bushings all done


next, subframe in the car
i decided to install this by pieces. i installed the RUCA to the subframe becaus ei figured it would be easier than doing it with it on the car, then it didn't add that much weight anyways. i did this all by myself, so making it light for me to be able to lift it was a must


i then installed the diff, again..this thing weight about 50 lbs or so...


fully assembled










installed protege steering wheel, i still need to restore it but it'll work for now






car sits higher in the rear because well.. i failed.
when assembling the struts, i installed the rear springs in the front and vice versa...******* fail i know but i rusehd it...i'll have to deal with that later...at least before the alignment.

some mor eupdates
had a nasty lifter clank sound ..it sounded like freaking rod knock...but it wasnt


this made me go back and remove all lifters and really give them a clean
setting up my workbench for lifter cleaning


all lifters cleaned


then oiled them and replaced them
engine started right up, with slight noise. then it got betetr to the point you cna't hear any lifter noise whatsoever

first crank



30 minute and drive around the block


that was exciting!

first oil change (after 50 minutes of running time..) just to get ne woil.
used rotella T for break in.



trying to get some ideas for intake positioning..but may end up doing filter on turbo







first drive to put gas. fille dup the tank on 40$ for the first time sinc ei've owned it 1 1/2 years.

19 whooping milesx on the break in



my datalogging tablet

some updates
finally settled on an intake filter


got an idea to route the oil lines






started to work on my switch board. i will have a push start..basically, doing away with a key..key will only open the door.





this is what i am looking into doing.


it will probably be done without the letters, or if i ever get a laser engraving thing...
dunno yet...

Very nice build! GAUGES!!!

Question about your oil filter. I see possibly the larger one was used... Would you happen to know the filter sizing or K&N oil filter part number for a slightly larger filter?

don't want to be a douche, but it took me 10 seconds to find it on google :P
Cross Reference for K&N Filter Part Number HP-1010

do a search within that page for L141610 and you'll see the cross reference to HP-1010

Sweet oil feed routing bro!

There's quite a few K&N filters in various sizes. What's your pipe size?

it is getting harder and harder to chose which one to drive....but A/C beats Horsepower and RWD



replacing lower Radiator hose with flipped inlet pipe and also HomeDepotRacing hard coolant pipe AKA sink pipe




proof it drives...


replacing broken oil feed line...someone mentioned it here...1$ to whoever points him out!


he has bad mojo!


nice pressure at start up from cold


SSQV installed..no picture..vac line relocated to back of manifold and not the nipple next to the TB



i believe this is a fake...it flutters a lot

as she stands today
