I don't want the escort either! Lol.

We have a solution for the gearbox issues now. All trac box's.

wish I could take credit for the plate but I purchase both of mine from a member on clubprotege.com Hopefully it works out great but I am along way from the toyota box swap. Just gathering parts for now.

What Porsche stuff?


my 75 911 and 3 914's. These were my passions but I got a job on the wetter side of my state and needed to get something a little more practical. I chose mazda, A) because I had had a 91 egt in highschool and B) because they seem to share porsches(aircooled that is) philosophy of good handling and lightweight. I still have all these cars but I had to leave them with my parents for now. Im looking to buy a house in the next 6 months so hopefully I can have them all on the same property some time soon.

mainly dream, lol. The one in the single car bay is/was my fathers. That started the whole thing. He wants to send it up my way so I can finish restoring/doing maintenance on it. The other two were purchased in hopes of getting a good donor shell for a 6 cylinder build up. Neither are the quality I was looking for though, so now I am not sure what I am going to do but they are 6 hrs away so I wont be able to do much till I get them back with me. Subaru swaps are becoming nearly bolt in for them though.

Lots of plans and lots of dreams here. Focusing on the mazdas for now.

Gotta do the subie swap on one of them for sure. a built 2.0 subie in one of those, forget making it look nice... that'd be tons of fun.

Hory shiet, you are reading my mind! I actually would like to do that pretty soon, but as stated previously, I need to get them over with me. Kits are becoming quiet cheap to do this, 1/4 turn fastners with full fiberglass fenders would be a fun build, light and cheap. Some day soon.

^ thanks, The escort has been the first car that I built start to finish. It was fun and a good learning experience but I am ready for some next level awd shiz and to get my porsche projects back under way! Still considering a miata for the wife if she'd give up her damn corolla.

Escort is gone, I was able to sell the shell


Pulled the motor first


I'll hopefully be dropping my b6t back into the gtx this week


That should free up some garage space

Here are some pics of the stash
Bpt setup out of the escort, will be going in the pro4wd temporarily


Gtr motor that will eventually end up in the pro4wd plus some other bits for it

There are some more goodies for the pro4wd coming, ill post pictures later

I'm just going to dump the rest of the pictures I took and field questions







Numbers wise, I a planning to max out the vj23 on the gtr block, supposedly it's a 350-ish who capable set-up, we will see. The other Bp I am building is getting all my forged pieces plus a bp4w head, may switch to a vvt, Holset hx-35 and custom intake and exhaust manifolds. I want to max it out as well and get something like 450 awhp in the gtx. Wish me luck!
