Default Hello, Community

Hey people, my name's Nero. Call me whatever you wish. I drive a 1990 Eunos Roadster, which is on it's last leg (engine-wise, anyway). Here's a picture.

Name:  Effit-0008.jpg

It's completely stripped, has bumper (the metal stuff - I know, not street safe) and reservoir deletes, has all the ViS carbon fiber parts (hood, trunk, hardtop), a modified GReddy turbo kit on my street engine (I hate it and have many choice words for it), Quaife gearset, Cusco MZ diff and a mess of suspension comprised of Cusco, Tanabe, RS*R, ST, Eibach and something else I can't remember. I took my bolt-in out because local regs won't pass it this year and I smashed my head on it pretty good from a pot-hole (all the more reason to take it out).

Anyway, hopefully I can jump right into a detailed build thread on my race engine (with an essentially-stock displacement of 1603 cm) in the next month or so. It's getting a Wiseco/Carillo forged set-up, knife-edged, balanced, P+P head, dual-spring valvetrain with 32/27 valves (with valve work) and some hefty cams. I'm pulling the ignition and fueling from the old get-up since it's too much for it anyway.

Hopefully I can put out an EPIC thread sooner rather than later and contribute some knowledge (or lack thereof) to the community.

One of the best first posts I have ever seen on this site. You capitalized letters, spelled words correctly and used punctuation properly.
In addition to this, you also seem very humble and intelligent.
You will fit right in here.

Car looks good, more pics of the turbo setup would be cool.
I really considered getting one of those vis CF hardtops a few years ago when my soft top formed holes, but I just got another soft top (unfortunately).

Moreover, you're not just dicking around with a pile of uninstalled parts like most of the noobs (me included).

Ah, ha ha. If any of you are wondering, the ViS hardtop really isn't worth it, unless you are ---- about weight savings. I got it for list, which was around $2,300 CAD. I would never pay full price for it. I had to use the rennenmetal.com Spec brackets so my cage would fit and I could not at all find the rear bracket... so I left them off. I can't remember how much it weighs, but it's a single-layer FG backing and you can easily carry it around with a couple fingers. I used lexan for the rear window.

The turbo set-up is essentially the same as every other GReddy set-up, except for the 3" turbo-back exhaust (A'PEXi mandrel-bent with their N1 turbo muffler), the plumbing for the front-mount (and the intercooler, too), the upgraded actuator and my FOURTH GReddy manifold, which is also cracked. Stupid GReddy.....

Ha ha, I used to do that with my '87 Accord with a muffler and dryer-ducting for an intake.... but I was still 16. Yeah, I was super cool back then, ha ha ha.

It's half track, half street. Should be all track, though (no side windows, no wiper blades), because it's really not street-legal and without the cage, a flying pebble will kill me. And hopefully people don't confuse him for me... that would be terrible. What other cool ****? I dunno... bits from HKS, Sparco, Mazdaspeed, Carbing and a gaping hole in my dash from where someone stole my GPS unit.

I have not done that. I was going to just port-match and clean all the excess crap out of mine and stick an organic spacer between it and the head. I will take a look, thanks.

ETD is FTW.

Sorry, by "other cool ****" I meant other vehicles. I see a bike in the background.

Are you serious??? FML sideways. Those are cheaper than what GReddy charged me for the first two manifolds I replaced.

Oh, and I thought you were talking about the intake manifold before, my bad.

Ha ha, yeah.... I crashed that thing last June. I'm trying to down-size my parking lot, so now all I have left is the Roadster, my '94 Legacy, '05 Civic, a '96 Taurus and an 18' Lund fishing boat that I haven't used in two years. Not really anything exciting. Sorry for any disappointment you experience while reading this post.

This next picture really is irrelevant, but I threw it at a co-worker and his facial expression had me in tears from laughing so I decided to post it. It was an awesome LAWL moment. And by awesome, I mean nothing else in my life has made me laugh so much. You should have been there.
