Very proud of what I did tonight, I only painted the shock tower forward, but I was more concerned about that cause it missed the most paint.

so my plan was put to a stop quick today about cleaning up my cs hood. when a fellow good friend and shop comes over to me and says, my step dad works for HONEYWELL....i was like and? he says pic anyone you like, and well go from there. little rough cause of how it was shipped, but the prices you WILL not beat for a new/rebuilt.

long story short, its a gt3782sn oil only. im looking through the stock but ran out of time. i want a water cooled turbo, but for the price im paying i REALLY cant complain.

update of the week:

block was done, but had one minor issue that is being tended to monday cause my darn brother AND dad couldnt tell me i missed not one but four calls from my machinist:mad::mad::mad: so instead of building the engine this weekend i will be wondering what i will not be doing. needless to say im not happy.

Looks great :)

When disconnecting/connecting up the rear swaybar, does the suspension need to be compressed?

Which setting are you trying first?

I bought three suspensions from them so they discounted the whitelines. One tein setup and two megans. I've seen them as low as $190 though.

The car looks like its coming along. How low are you going to have your car? Are you going to compensate for the lower strut top?

Ah, interesting they changed that. I plan on doing the opposite if I ever do any major overhauling to my suspension. I would like to raise the height of the strut top mount myself. Then again, if I was to go through that much trouble, I think I would just get a whole new suspension on my car.
