Then again, if I was to go through that much trouble, I think I would just get a whole new suspension on my car.



thinking i should have gone somewhere else. my black cars Megans are happy, am actually happy with where it sits and adjustments. these tend to feel soft compared to the megans.

anyways setting up my car these next few months, so it might be a while.

okay, so I took a couple of years off and trying to get back on here to finish what ive been developing.

Update:
1) got a new job last year
2) car still runs tip top
3) engine/trans and brakes are setup for street use currently for smog in may

Plans over the next couple of months include

Brakes being ccompleted to be able to stop when being heavily used(currently on going testing for both 5x100/5x114)

Engine being refinished on the new block and completely re-doing another head with valve system gone through again.

Cams....this will be interesting

Put up the write up for aem ems+4 (also working on my own stand alone 32 bit ems). Will be running coil on plug. For the 3sgte only really with only tdc and cylinder ident.

Trans....eh nothing preitty

Turbo choice will depend on cam choice.

Complete the edfc conversion on suspension.

Install the new lsd
install all the bushings ive already had for 2 years.

Finish gauge mounting.

Install an actual functioning radio instead of dead space for gauges.

Im currently having to go through my stock of parts and invintory of new and used. Its taking some time coding and inputing the info into my data base. Im a horder of what I have, I take failed parts and find out why or how they failed to ensure it can be lessen issues in the future. I currently also have a back ground in the goto shop in so-cal for alltracs and took a step back this time last year in going another direction with the car again as well as just getting a b etter understanding what I wanted to do. If you are still reading to this point then youll know things will start getting posted on here for refference.
