I asked for a quote on those IC kits from FM when they where moving. I gave him my phone number. He said he would sell them all to me cheap. I called back a few weeks later. They threw them all away during the move. Complete IC kits.
I was sick.
I had to buy a mandrel exhaust kit and make mine work.

Your car is pure sex. HP goal? More pics when the wheels arrive, and get some videos of your car in action(once its complete)! (please?!).

We need more good videos of the badass cars here on mt.net (this means you too Hustler

Ditching the heater is pretty hardcore in the middle of winter!

Looking bad ***! Nothing beats getting a car running again and having it do right. DId you end up using the old head? Didnt read in depth into the other thread. Im guessing the seats were redone?

I miss driving my car, and its not even turbo yet. Im spending thousands on other parts and my car isnt even on the road (interior and exterior parts).

Thanks man. Part off what took so long getting it back on the road was trying to find a GOOD replacement head. Mine was shot and the first 2 that I found were crap, then finally I found a good one. I also needed to find a 1.6 long nose crank shaft as mine suffered from that good ole wobbly crank problem and wore out the key way. I had already did the locktite fix on the crank once before and figured since its out lets just get a good one. Finding a long nose crank shaft took a while supprisingly.
