got a little update. been sick for over 2 weeks and finally am feeling better so i got some garage time finallllllyyyyyy....

rebuilt my axles (they needed new boots bad)



worked on the wiring a bit... got axles in, hoses ran, stuff hooked up


got the hot side boost pipe done. its very tight radius but smooth, and hey its a bout as short of a run from the turbo to intercooler as you can








got the intake manifold painted and installed



used one of those cool therma-gaskets to try and keep intake temps down




still got some wiring to do




but hey....




at least the views pretty cool now hahahah.

gots another update... finally found another few days to knock some more stuff out...

been trying to figure out what i wanna do with the shifter and got it figure out...

chopped out a nice CF plate from a piece i made


pulled apart the stock shifter...


measured it out and marked it


chopped and installed.... not perfect but good enough



got the other boost pipe (intercooler to tb) done...



all aftermarket manifolds put all the ports in the same spot. well one of the nice parts about doing it all yourself means i can put the right size port exactly in the spot that i want it...


did a little sandwich stack with my tranny cooler and radiator, then bottom right is my oil cooler mounted to intercooler. So everything should stay nice and cool.



intakes done with all barbs and 5 bar map, fuel rail and inj back in and cleaned up. tb cable sorted...


MAN she's getting close.

-wire up trans
-wire up TB sensors
-radiator hoses
-turbo drain
-swap rear diff for auto diff
-ss rear brake lines

bout it... so a few solid days left and she'd be done ready to rock

new filter set up JK


picked up some new wheels...



plasti-diped em for now




Cars so fast it decided to blow itself apart



just welded it back up for now but plan on rebuilding that whole piece out of some heavier stainless.


was messing with the boost controller and broke this fitting...



so while the cold side housing was off fixing it i threw some paint at it to make it stand out

SO...

that finally catches the build thread up to present.

CAR been running with the auto swap for a few months fighting small issue's here and there.

Finally got it lined out enough to see how it would do at the track. (i knew it wouldn't launch well)



(stay tuned for video)


but anyways, it only did a 12.5 at 125 because it 2.6 60 foot. Car only foot brakes to about 3k which only builds about a pound of boost. LOL.


SO im gonna but the bottle to IT

Here is the video.

you can see how painfully slow the thing launches... but once the turbo comes on it strolls out pretty good.

the old nasty exhaust manifold pipe that blew out at the track


got it all fixed up with some thick SS, even went a little larger pipe to help flow, also recirculated my wastegate while i was in there.


Finally got my new tires, old ones were 24.6, these are 26.1, that should help get my MPH back.





needless to say it fills the fender opening quite adequately

My friend was able to get boost to build when they got an arc2 ignition box. Then you will build so much boost you'll have to install a vacuum pump to help hold it back at the line :-)

went out and did some tunning and got it running solid... then went and raced a 1000whp truck and got a got a solid win..... WHILE blowing a head gasket.


got it apart and man did i blow a gasket and torch the head in the process..



it wasn't that deep (forgot to take a before) this is cleaned out ready for welding.


Welded it back up thoroughly and re-decked it. Got a new expensive billy badass head gasket and did all the black magic tricks to all the stuff using all i have learned from the gurus to re-seal the head. I think its staying down this time.

Got a bunch of goodies im dong this week to be ready for 2k13 so its game time

When you say ready for 2k13 are you referring to TX2k13?
