Postby monkracing29 » Fri Nov 06, 2009 3:32 pm

Hey, guys finally got around to posting up some pix of my project 92 trac, after having it since spring
My dad and I got the car off of a kid in Kentucky for "steal" haha, there were alot of problems with it.
these first pictures are when we got it back to Illinois my dad brought it to my work to show me.

one of the problems started with the big 3" dent on the roof. :cry:
Image Image

more with the electrical, :shrug: ALL of the ECU wiring was cut and we had an extremely fun time rewiring,soldering cutting figuring out the pins for it.

Looks like a lot of work. The parts look great after the shot peening. While you have everything apart, have you considered sourcing a 3sge manifold and FMIC? It yields a lot more room to grow than the constantly heat soaked TMIC with notoriously horrible distribution stock offset center feed manifold.

well after a long absence from this site and working on the trac because I was going to school and didn't have much extra time to work on it. :( I am finally back to working on it and finish rebuilding the motor. I am going to start posting more pictures up and im hoping to have it running either this month or early February.
Here is where i am at with it right now before we tore the motor down.

thanks hendrix i am very happy of the turn out so far :D my dad has taught me alot about painting and hes helping me paint it we still have to paint the entire front end hood bumper front and rear fenders and the spoiler. then the rims we are painting gray like the stripe. So updates this weekend pictures to come soon we sized the pistons rings and installed the pistons in the block put the comet metal head gasket on (fact the comet head gasket is backwards from the stock gasket we put it on and the little arrow on the stock one is on the right side of the motor and the comet one there is no arrow but it is completely flipped around kinda weird but what can you do :doh:) head is installed have the arp studs torqued down and hopefully will be starting with the cam shafts in a few days then timing we are getting so close!! :D cant wait to have my baby up and street legal haha
