Yikes... it's been a while.

Recent, almost cried, I lost my keys, they turned up in a parking lot.
Luckily someone turned them into the parts store or else I would have been in trouble...
Time to update?

I parted it out...

Kidding.











.............................

Those are my rod bearings on a 100,000 mile stock engine. Runn'em.




I love purple, what of it?

Waiting on a front case gasket and a few other assorteds and then I will have some BIG updates.

Looks like that's going to be a fun VR4 for ya, glad to see you're taking safety more serious with the seats too.


Kind of some coincidences here.... I have a red 91 talon, bought number 1945 from 4wheelsqueel, plan to swap all I can. lol Only difference is mine will be a daily.

After being a wreck and watching my chest fly an inch away from my steering wheel and my battery flying out of my hatch and hitting my passenger seat-

Yeah, enough said, have to do this all right now or I will not be happy.

I have some updates guys!










Center console is in.















Strictly Import Motorsports did an awesome job on my head. I'm extremely happy with it. They have insane crazy prices, and do good work. They have excellent communication and I don't think I'd get a head rebuilt anywhere else.

You can check out the head rebuilds here!

We will see how well this in cabin MBC ninja mod works.








Get motor in, find out my subframe was REALLY tweaked from the crash, no idea how I didn't notice.


Pull motor and subframe out.

3 hours later....


Herroo!

I really like what you did with the fuel cell, and the grill look damn good. Really loving the build can't wait to see it done.

So I just realized every tool box should have a PBR drawer.

Car is coming along nicely. Fuel cell looks awesome, because racecar.

Thank you guys! A PBR drawer is very very needed when working on these guys.

I really didn't know what to do with the fuel cell or how to mount it. Some guys said I should build a cage and drop it down below the car, but this will work just fine. I'm really not that good at welding and was stuck to a 110V Mig that I had borrowed from a friend. I'm very very suprised with how clean it turned out but wasn't sure what the opinion of others would be when they saw it.

Thank you once again! Car is supposed to run in a week. We shall see.
