Finally actual progress.

by ryandriftingfat on April 26, 2012

The car FINALLY went off for wiring today. First time out of the garage. Showing off the ridiculous exhaust.  I think it’s like a giant wing, you need to have the aero to back it up, this exhaust just looks weird with a stock bumper. Bleh. It’s been a very frustrating two months, that bit […]

Bolted up the last piece this week, the coolant reservoir. Filled it with distilled water and water wetter for max cooling. Can’t wait to see how it does. Sending the car off for wiring next week. Getting a fresh, complete custom harness and switch panel. Hoping to have it running in the next month, probably […]

Finished plumbing everything this week and bolted the front end back together with the PBM intercooler. So this is about all I can do on my own, making wiring and alignment plans right now. In the mean time there are a few other minor things I want to do that I’ve put off. My to-do list: […]

One of my friends does camo paint on assault rifles and I thought it would be cool to do it on the bezel for my gauge cluster. Finally got it back on Saturday and after a couple days to let the clear coat dry, I installed it all last night. It’s really hard to get […]

Quick progress post.

Almost there. I can count on one hand how many things remain. The PS lines are run, just need to cut them down to size and attach them to the cooler. Then mount the oil cooler and maybe get some shorter lines. Once they’re done, it’s off for wiring and alignment. The radiator support is […]

This is not an update. I just think this pic looks cool. Radiator support, headlights and Powered By Max intercooler unbolted as one piece. Time to paint the radiator support. PBM intercooler is rad as hell.

It’s been a busy week. I’m waiting on some new tubing as well so progress has kind of stalled. Been doing other minor open items on the car and in the garage like removing some more sound deadening and making a tire storage rack. This is really the only major progress I’ve made; cutting the […]

Exhaust mounted.

by ryandriftingfat on February 7, 2012

Mounted up the exhaust last night, front to back. Heat wrapped from the turbo elbow back to just before the muffler section. You can also see the Circuit Sports SR20DET transmission mount in the picture. The CS mount is a really nice unit – solid and fits perfectly for a good price. This exhaust is […]

Circuit Sports oil pan.

I’m not usually one to waste a bunch of bits and bytes oohing and ahhing about the products I use. Most of them are off the shelf stuff that you can see anywhere. If I was doing some fab work, that might be different. In any case, I am breaking from that because I got […]
