Probably for $100 w/o shipping. But I'm not sure yet. I got too many sales right now. Give me some time to think about it. I'm still wondering when Conrad is finishing his suspension bits...

Mike,
Yeah they all came w/ Cusco pillowball mounts. I was very happy indeed as there are only 2 in existence (Justin's V8 Alltrac apparently had 2, he sold one to Snowbird and then it has come to my possession). They are VERY beefy!

I've picked up 2 MR2's. The blue one has really stuck on me and I can't wait to find the time and space to start restoring her. I'll probably splurge on a machine press, some air tools and finally a large tool cabinet because my tools are everywhere.

Funny how I got to installing the header and exhaust on my tC (also got to rotate those tires and re-oil my filter)! It's so true Ripley. It's like a giant "MISSION COMPLETE!"

Haven't updated in a while but I got my KO Racing turbo kit back. Turbo was re-shimmed, a Tial WG, DP and hoses. Now I've been thinking about a GT35R kit. No worries as this turbo is perfect for my MR2 1.5 project.

I've sold my old ChrisK intake to help purchase my white MR2. Now I've just purchased Wraith's ChrisK sidefeed intake and I'm waiting for that to arrive. I'll take pics but it may be a while since I've just sent the money today.

So close now... I'm almost there... I'm taking a dive with his sidefeed intake. I PRAY IT FITS!!!

As promised.

Partial KO Kit w/ other Toyota goodies...
Image
There are the bag~o~goodies, KO DP, t3/t4 manifold adapter, my turboz, Tial WG, MR2 Quaife quick steering ratio, 3 oil filters (that will fit my tC, MR2's and Alltrac), Axxis Ultimates for the tC (look how puny those rears are!).

I completely forgot to add the MT90 Redline and Toyota Pink fluids (man those were $$$). I also have purchased a local 1993 MR2 TRD LSD tranny for dirt cheap.

Almost done with the purchasing part. I've called ACPT for a quote on that CF driveshaft. Hopefully it won't break the bank. Soon I'll purchase an AEM EMS and custom fab the FMIC through them. As for my exhaust system I have no idea what I am going to do? Maybe I'll give KO another call and see what they can come up with.

I just got the new ChrisK sidefeed intake manifold purchased from Wraith. Honestly I don't think it'll fit... No... IT WILL FIT!

It came with a 70mm BBK throttle body and he tossed in the side feed fuel rail which looks like it's been bored. It's also ceramic coated.

Image
It certainly looks larger than the other one I had. I'll have to find my other intake manifold just to make sure.

Image
Velocity stacks too! Much nicer than the other design. This should help with low to mid range grunt. I'm wondering if the sidefeed will affect the airflow so I'm probably going to have someone flowtest this part for me. Maybe while I'm at it I'll toss on the stock, the other ChrisK and if someone is so kind enough an RMR for the testing.

Sigh... My last post was in February... It's now August.

As of late I've been so busy with work so there's no time on the Alltrac. I got married on July 11th and ironically marriage was a lot like going out. No big changes and I'm happy for that.

There was the ACPT carbon driveshaft GB (I haven't even opened it up yet) and that's about it.

It might have to be pushed again next year... But what else is new? Just gives me more money to save up for it I suppose... :p
