Combine the cash you both spent and you can buy another VR-4

Looking good though, Craig. I'm glad you're getting back in the swing of things.

Fuel lines and fittings came in today. I thought I had basic criteria for what I wanted, but it ended up that Goodridge 910 PTFE lines were the only real option.


My not so exciting Turbonetics manifold to complete my $200 turbo setup.


These should be showing up any day. I'm much more of a drag racing guy, but I couldn't pass them up. Hotbits DT2 coilovers

Don't feel bad on the coilovers. I bought a set of Muellerized JIC coilovers and pretty much drag race. Stupid good deal to pass up. Seems like a waste, but hey they do help.

Looking very nice sir.

My friend Kris put me in the payment plan, so I was forced to buy them haha. I have BC's on my Subaru and I'm not impressed with the them.

Also finished up putting POR on my suspension parts yesterday, hillbilly style

So it can't be hillbilly style then if it's in a house(that looks nice).

Looking good. Are you going to paint over the POR15 or leave it?

Yeah Shane, I don't have a heated garage so I said fuck it. GF thought I was crazy, but she isn't one to complain.

Prove it, I plan on leaving them as is. If I used it in the actual chassis or underbody I would paint over it. I think it looks decent, definitely better than rust lol Although my car will never see snow or rain again

Getting all the packages is my favorite part. Feel like a little kid getting new toys!

Are you not going with an oil cooler? I see the forward facing housing, so curious.

I decided to sell my external oil cooler setup. It will mainly get drag races. I might do max effort at the Shootout and some local auto-x. Basically I think it can handle one minute of 2nd gear driving without it. I'm trying to simplify things as much as possible

I went ahead and cleaned up and sealed my gas tank while I had the POR out. I did another sending unit, I plan on selling the one pictured. So jealous of all the PNW guys who don't have to deal with salt and rust

So no gorgeous top mount turbo setups, custom hand made parts from a CNC machine, or awesome rally car inspiration in this build thread. But I did buy some EVO IX SE front and rear seats. For me, its probably been my most exciting purchase

Just get it done.

No less glory because you can't outspend the Jones's.

Those seats should keep you well planted.

Running a free setup that came with 774 when I parted it out. Precision T3 60-1, tubular 02 with a two bolt Tial, and a short V band down pipe. All I had to buy was a $100 Turbonetics cast manifold and the oil lines.

I'm just ready to enjoy the car for awhile. Hoping to make 400-450whp on E85 for now.
