ST165 Daily Beater Project

Postby jspeedrifter » Wed Aug 15, 2012 12:20 pm

Hey guys!

Here is the beginning of my first build thread ever! I picked up a pair of ST165's from a friend of mine. I plan on using one of them (the grey one) as the driver and the other (the red one) as the parts car. The grey one has a JDM motor and transmission with ARP headstuds and a fresh Cometic head gasket. Other than that, the motor is just sitting in the car and the interior is pretty bare.

I don't plan on doing anything crazy, just getting it running and driving :). I'm going to run a FMIC and I'll probably fab up a DP and full exhaust just because I can :). My family has a welding/fabrication shop, so I have access to some decent equipment and a lift. The red car has some nicer interior and it have some aftermarket springs (Eibach according to the PO) and some better struts.

I just have a few photos at the moment, but here they are:

I'm up for any suggestions you guys might have! I'm new to the All-Trac world, so help me out :). Cheers!

They both look pretty clean, why not drive one and sell one?

Sorry guys, had to edit my first post. The red one has definitely seen better days. The motor is totally locked up, but it is still complete. I have the missing body kit pieces that are undamaged as well.

I plan on taking a lot of the interior and maybe a few things from under the hood, but other than that, the red one will get parted out and then scrapped when I'm done. That is, unless someone offers me some cash for it ;)

Hey guys!

I'll check on the parts and see what I have laying around. I'll need to sell them so that I can fund this little project, but I'm sure the prices will be cheap :). The exhaust on the red one is some random exhaust that I fabbed up when the car belonged to my friend (the PO). It's a basic universal muffler with 2.5" DP back. It's not great, so I'll probably redo most of it for my new project. I like the way it exits and it actually sounded pretty good. Who knows!

I'm hoping to get the grey one running on Saturday the 25th. The cars are about 100 miles north of me at my family's shop, so if I can get it running then I can bring it home. Then I can work on the exhaust, FMIC, and other interior parts. I'm hoping it runs alright once it's put together!

If you want to sell the exhaust hit me up cause my OEM exhaust system was involved in a accident by the PO

Sorry man, I'm going to use parts of the exhaust to make one for the grey one. If I get good enough, I'll make one for you ;).

Hey guys!

Here's a question for those of you with a different intake manifold: Does the side-feed intake manifold from the non-turbo motor fit the all-trac motor? Before I fab up the intercooler pipes, I want to have a different intake manifold so it looks better. That and clocking the turbo seem to make a big difference in the engine bay.

Thanks for any input! I should have more photos and updates in a few days! I'm headed to work on it this weekend and I'm pretty excited. I have the repair manual all loaded up on my iPad :)
