I recently went home for Thanksgiving and was able to fire 380 up after a long 2 1/2+ year hibernation. It felt nice. Now the light is finally at the end of the tunnel, we are no longer in the tear down/build stages and now approaching completion. My good friend Mr. Caroll and his shop have been helping me out in huge way with this build. Between his welding, mechanical skills, tools, workspace and storage. He has been a god send and non of this would have ever been possible. Also special thanks to the board for invaluable help, marketplace, great community and members (local and far).

To make a long story short....This was supposed to be a simple custom downpipe build and Evo suspension conversion but due to the ORG's JSB curse, and other "reasons" it snowballed for better or worse .

Between him having his pinky amputated, building the highest horsepower (~900whp) "full weight" E85 Evo 8 in NM, moving 380 from his brothers garage into a new shop, Parting his EVO, other custom builds at his shop, daily transmission shop operation and Myself moving to NYC. We have been making baby steps for what seems like ages.

There are still some work and finishing touches to be done but I wanted to share my progress.

No more Jackstands!!!

Previous mod list:
660cc injectors
Keydiver Stage 3 chip

380 made 248whp/261trq on 9psi on my previous set-up, I have a dual stage boost controller and wasn't able to get a good run on 14psi due to a boost leak at the throttle body. I remedied it soon after but never dynoed it on 14psi. Pulled strong...

current:




Summer 10':















Circa 06'-07' in her glory days. Street, camping and snowboard trim:




Cicra 06' when I bought "Betsy":




My goal is to have a reliable OEM+ road trip warrior for NM and CO highways. I plan on doing some Auto-X track days at Sandia Motor Speed Way and Sandia peak Touge runs when shes done for next summer and fall. I will be returning to Albuquerque in 3 weeks and hopefully have her buttoned up.

Let me know what you guys think of the evolution of 380.

Thanks guys, yeah I was really happy with the color matched Enkei's. I like that they keep with the OEM style and look. I might have to massage the front fenders to get a perfect fit w/ the 245's. We pulled some negative camber w/ the Teins and added the 5mm spacers in the rear, which isn't pictured but it made a world of difference.

Glad to see her off JSB status E!

Also funny to see so many of her parts on #86 now, betting the off-road shot was right before/after the DP crease LOL.

You coming back to ABQ for X-mas or New Year's?

Well worth it....

Hey Mike you wouldn't still happen to have the factory catalytic converter would ya'?

I'm gonna be home in 3 weeks for 2 weeks, don't sell "Boomerang" so we can go on a cruise. Also I' m gonna try and that grille from you. You gonna be back from the motherland?

Big shout out to KTMrider aka Mike for helping me source a 4-bolt LSD while I was in town, the new diff is back in still reatining the 4WS. More pics to come as it's comes closer to the Move to CO.

Thank you for the kind words. I just ordered some H&R 5mm rear spacers and open ended mag style lug nuts to go with the extended wheel studs, but I can't wait to paint the window moldings, get the front lip mounted and a long list of exterior enhancements... but getting her road ready is priority #1. She will soon look proper....

Anytime E, worked out great on both sides as Rabbi was having a time with those boogered case threads.

Hope your next visit to Burque is under better terms and we have time to meet up. Shant has #86 running around again after a long JSB stint. #464 is just about perfect for the time being, had to divert $$$ recently to home and family issues so 18psi and great handling are the norm for awhile.

Hope the CO thing comes to bear, puts you closer to NM and a great group in and around Denver.

Mike- NIce to know your still in the GVR-4 game Mike, man I can't tell you how lucky that was to snag that rear diff. Your a life saver...I hope the XT is still running nice, such a badass family car for NM.

Bobdole - Thanks man, I seriously cannot say enough good things about CMPE. Going from their old vintage 2.5" turbo back to purchasing the new system, they clocked the downpipe flange for the EVO III o2 housing, welded in the wideband bung in the proper spot and not mention how well the craftsmanship is, the welds are flawless.

p.s. You don't know how much your car has been an inspiration to step up my game with restomodding the galant. Every time I read your build thread I'm speechless and cannot even post. all I can say is static TE37V's game over haha.

Hopefully Boulder or Denver, I will find out around June/July and then hopefully making the big move around September. I know a big chunk of them are out there, it will be fun to cruise with some GVR-4's.

My pleasure! XT is running like a champ, replaced the fuel pump a few months back and solved the few remaining issues.

That exhaust is now on #464 believe it or not! I wanted a 2.5", owner of #86 ( where it was still mounted ) wanted 3". Viola, ordered a new 3" CMPE and moved the "vintage" 2.5" over. I did replace the DP awhile back, no more evidence of Sandia Peak backroads anymore....
