Wow is all I can say.

I want the shop, you can keep the cars. I will be out to have it choppered up to my place. And here I thought I was being way too greedy in planning an oversized 5-car tandem with it's own heat/AC (only reason teh fiance even considered was she would get the massive master bed/bath added above it). After looking at yours, maybe I need to expand on my idea a bit more. :twisted:

So back to the topic at hand...

What are the plans for the, now cozy, ST165? Mild power increase? Wild? Rally? Strip demon?

Please do tell.... oh and be sure to include plenty of pics of the shop and you can include a pic or two of the progress on the car. :P

haha thanks man, its not that great... i can put 9 cars inside for work and own about 30 right now. .all on a whole city block. its a ton to take care of, i'd rather just have a little 5 car!!


I'm going for just your basic street fighter setup. no rally, all tarmac. I'll probably track it here and there since its already got the springs, shocks and sways on it. I'm not sure what turbo im going to run yet or what other mods i'll be able to afford. i had a huge thread on the original at.net board about my first build.. which was 46 trim garrett with bolt ons and it never made it threw a tank of gas before it popped. this one will be different, just depends on money!!

I pulled the trac out today.. I think im going to yank the head off this and see whats going on. I have a brand new head sitting here, so if thats the problem, then I'll put it on and get it driving again so i can enjoy it. I'll need a DD anyway for a while until my accord wagon is done with its mods, which are full custom turbo kit on teh H22a ( 91 accord wagon ), H&R springs, Koni struts, full poly bushing kit, and full 5 lug conversion w/ brembo hardware/stailness lines and camber kits. Once thats done, i'll switch to the trac again.



In the mean time, i've been thinking about some things that I would like to do as the jdm 185 motor is going in... im thinking to start:

fidanza fly w/ 4 puck act
build a custom intake manifold; big tank, short runner, side feed no tvis
crower stg 3's, shimless buckets, gears to degree them in
build a custom exhaust mani for whatever turbo i choose

i also would like to build my own single piece drive shaft and lock the center diff somehow. Some body stuff i'd like to do is a fiberglass hood skin and headlight bucket delete. There's always ideas running through my head, but I need to think about some of the costs and time, so these are all just ideas for now to jot down. Hopefully they all come through!



First is first, lets get that head off and see wtf is going on!

well about 4hr to yank the head off... holy lord. I dont think thats too bad considering apple break, etc. Luckily though, i found my problem along with some other interesting facts.

I almost forgot i had made this thread.. Well, since last updated, I got married... left my shop, moved to Illinois, got a new job and vuala here I is. I never did anything with the car till a few weeks ago. I put a quicky turbo setup on it and my JDM 185 motor in it along with a clutch, flywheel, etc. I just bought the wheels for it and took it to work for the first time... actually drove it for the first time really.

I'll kindly take the blue one, please! :twisted: That's good to see you got it back up & running again. So are you in the 'burbs or downtown Chicago? I can't recall ever seeing too many All-Tracs around the 'burbs I used to always be around (Naperville through Lombard).
