Default How NOT to build a car from the ground up

Summary:

GSX project located in Spain. They were claiming to build a 900hp+ 10k RPM GSX. It is obvious these people are completely clueless. Pictures tell it all.

http://www.lancerregister.com/showthread.php?t=224101

Highlights include:
  • Ridiculous headwork
  • Painting the interior
  • Painting the transmission, block, suspension and driveshaft
  • Painting the engine bay without removing wires
  • Amazing Welding Skills
    All Painting = Sanding and Priming Optional

And finally, the video.

Six colors of paint, China-everything, uber airbox that ate up a bunch of time and then was subsequently replaced with an open filter, ummm, creative porting, stock headgasket to run 20+psi, eating chinacharger on startup, replacing with I believe another chinacharger for the biggest loss ever.

The grooves in the head are called Singh grooves. Nothing to laugh about, many drag racers use them. But that's not the way they're supposed to be done.

So many great quotes, like " is he going to weld the airbox shut ?" The Brits are as entertaining as the original thread.

Where you excel over these guys is in your acknowledgment of that.

P.S. BTW, me too. I've never welded anything in my LIFE.

mitsus has a factory MLS gasket, no reason it will not hold 20+psi. the theory of those grooves are legit, but they are used completly wrong. and the second turbo is no chinacharger, its a baller turbo, precision is a BIG name in turbos. http://www.precisionturbo.net/index.php
